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.

SAL at Oak Haven Designs
I'm trying something new (to me) this year, a Stitch-A-Long from Oak Haven Designs. It is a month-by-month design of little owls, with the months at the bottom. Here's a small picture of the January design (not my stitching though, as I've only just started.)
If you'd like to join in this SAL, all you have to do is join the Yahoo Group called Oak Haven Designs at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OakHavenDesigns/ and ask Tonia for the charts. Since I was late getting started, I asked her for January and February charts, which she sent me via email. These are free charts for members and she also has a lot of other freebies that you can request she send to you. Tonia has some beautiful charts she gives to members and also some she has for sale.
It took me a while to figure out the measurements of the finalized design, which will be about 7.5 x 14 when finished, but after much adding, subtracting, and using the ruler, I hope I have it right.
I started tonight on the January chart and will try to get both January and February done this month.
