I love to cross stitch for charity. My main focus since I retired in 2006 has been stitching and sewing for World of Charity Stitching and Love Quilts USA.

Beautiful Day in Pensacola
This little fairy was stitched for Love Quilts for the American Cancer Society quilt to be auctioned off to raise money for cancer research- stitched in June 2010
It's a beautiful day in Pensacola today; did a little bit of stitching on the back porch this morning before it got too hot and before we went out to breakfast at Cracker Barrel, a special treat.
Almost finished with the stitching of the ball pitcher, except for the face, hat, and ball glove. After that, it's back-stitching (ugh), though I usually take the material out of the hoop or q-snap and stitch by hand; it is easier, goes a lot faster, and I can't tell any difference in keeping it in the frame and doing it the lazy way. Someone once told me I was "cheating" by doing it that way, but so what? Each of us has our own way of doing things - that's what makes us unique.
