Playful Kittens

I enjoyed stitching these cute little kittens for my group, World of Charity Stitching.  We will be making a wonderful lap quilt in the coming months for a senior lady in a nursing home. 

If you love stitching for others, please join us by going to our website or blog.  Or if you have some stitched pieces stuck in a drawer or closet and don't know what in the world to do with them, we'd love to make beautiful gifts with them for seniors and for children.

We donate our gifts to a nursing home, to the Ronald McDonald House and to the Favor House, a domestic violence shelter.

Love Quilts Square for Matthew F.

This Rainbow Trout square was finished last night;  I did a little stitching at the bowling alley, where I stitch between my time to bowl, however, the lighting wasn't the greatest and  the batteries in my little table light I use were failing.

I finished it when I got home and had much better light with my Ott light.

This is a square for a little boy, Matthew F., who lives in Minnesota and loves the outdoors.   I enjoyed stitching it because it was very colorful.  I only had to do a little bit of "frogging", as I made a goof when I looked at one of the symbols and used the wrong color. 

Stitching for World of Charity Stitching and Love Quilts is very relaxing for me and I love to be able to give to others who are less fortunate.

Another Therapy Pillow for a Senior at Century Care Center

Today I started and finished another therapy pillow for a senior man at CCC.  It was a stitched piece I did a while back, along with the wolf piece that I had previously made into a pillow. 

Since it is a pillowcase, it can be removed and washed if needed.

A Hummingbird for a Special Lady

This piece is for a special quilt for a lady in a nursing home who has Multiple Sclerosis.  She spends most of her time in bed due to her illness.  Our group, World of Charity Stitching, is making a quilt for her comprised of different types of birds and crosses.  This should be a very interesting quilt when our quilter finishes it. 

The hummingbird and flower were quickly stitched, but the border took a long, long time.   After I finished the bird/flower, the square looked too small, so I found a border on the internet that I used to enhance the pattern.
