Some Recent Projects

This Cowboy boot was stitched for a sick boy who loves anything involving cowboys.   This was a recent theme for Love Quilts USA.
I enjoyed stitching this one, as it was so colorful and cheerful.  I hope the little boy loves it as much as I loved stitching it.
A Ballerina for a little girl who wants a quilt of Ballerinas.  I've stitched this one previously, so it stitched up pretty quickly.  

Both of these have been mailed to the Love Quilts coordinator and will eventually be part of beautiful quilts for children.

I finished some stitching last month, mostly while on our trip to and from Virginia to celebrate my Uncle Phil's 90th birthday celebration.  Since we never know how long we will be on this good earth, my husband and I decided on the spur of the moment to join the rest of his close-knit family to celebrate this special occasion.  He was honored by the United States Marine Corp. for his exceptional service during World War II, with an honor guard who arrived at the party to give him a special plaque and a speech by the Colonel of the unit.  

Sometimes it's not easy to stitch while riding in the car, but I managed to get these small pieces finished.  They will be made into a wall hanging soon and will be donated to a care facility nearby.
