New Stitched Pieces to Share

I have been working on some pieces for the World of Charity Stitching group.  The May piece is one that will be part of a months of the year quilt given to a senior citizen in a care facility.  Other members are stitching or have stitched the remaining months and these will be assembled and sent to one of our quilters to be finished. 

 We also have a Teddy Bear theme in the works.  This will be a cute quilt for a child and will be donated either to the Ronald McDonald House in Pensacola, FL or the Favor House, a domestic violence shelter.

This last piece, the Puzzle, will be part of a wall hanging we are making for one of the senior centers for their game room.  We hope to get more group members to sign up for additional squares to make a quilt too.

I am currently working on a Stegosaurus for Love Quilts.   I started it last night while watching t.v. and it looks like it will take a while to finish.  It has lots of subtle shading of browns and tans, not my favorite kind of stitching.  But it is for a good cause - a little boy who loves Dinosaurs.  Love Quilts is an organization that stitches squares for sick children to be created into beautiful quilts to help comfort them while they are in the hospital or at home.
