January and February Stitching

These are some of the squares I've finished for January and February.  I'll be starting on new pieces very soon.

You can join at any time of the year - this group is mainly a motivational tool to help us stay motivated to stitch.

For February, I finished a Bugs Bunny square for World of Charity Stitching. Members are stitching cartoon characters to make a quilt or two to be donated to a child (or children).  I'm sure there are a lot of ladies who remember this cartoon character.

This was fun to stitch  - I can't wait to see the finished quilt or quilts.  I finished this last night after I got home from bowling in a ladies league.  But I did a lot of the stitching while waiting my time to bowl.

I really enjoy stitching for charity, as I find it very rewarding to be able to use my stitching skills to help make gifts for others.

Valentine Cards

These are some of the Valentine cards I recently stitched and finished for World of Charity Stitching.  These pieces were easy to stitch and most were free charts I found on Pinterest or the Internet.

Each year our group makes cards to be given to seniors in care facilities.  We hope this will brighten their day.
