May Stitching

Kittens for Love Quilts
February Teddy
 I got quite a bit accomplished in May, even though it was a busy month in the garden and our granddaughter finishing up her first season of high school softball.

The kittens were fun to stitch and will eventually be part of a Love Quilts quilt for a sick child.

April Smalls SAL

Whimsical Owl for Love Quilts
April brought lots of sunshine here in Florida.  Our garden has been needing a lot of work and being outside is always a plus.  So, work in the garden in the morning and stitching in the evenings, after supper.

In the evenings, I am able to relax with my charity stitching, which is always enjoyable.

March Stitching

Love Quilts USA
I got a lot of stitching done in March.  I guess it was the weather and it got dark so soon before daylight savings time came into effect.   Now that it is spring, I am walking more and doing more outdoor activities.

I especially enjoyed stitching the jungle piece for a Love Quilts child.  It was challenging, but I think it will look great on the Jungle Animals quilt they will be making.

February Stitching

I've been able to get quite a bit of stitching done this month.  I'm trying something new this year:  making a list of designs to be stitched for the month.  This helps keep up with obligations (squares I've signed up to stitch for charity, Love Quilts and World of Charity Stitching), stitching I've wanted to do for a while, and different themes I'm currently working on.   

As you can see, I really enjoy stitching for charity.  It keeps me busy, it is a craft I love, and it helps others less fortunate.  I feel blessed to be able to do this for myself and others.

December and January stitching

Somehow, I was unable to upload to my blog in December for the Dec. Smalls SAL.  So I am posting all the stitching I did in December and January.  

We had a new Grandson born Dec. 4, 2016 and I stitched and framed this birth announcement for him and his family.

 Valentine Cards for WOCS.
Teddy Bear ABC's.  Some of our members are helping to stitch up the remaining ABC bear to be made into a quilt for a child or baby sometime this year.  I'm still working on a few more.

Smalls SAL update

 Two Garden Bunnies stitched for Love Quilts USA
 A Dachshund for a Dog Quilt for World of Charity Stitching.

 I've been working on a monthly series of cute little kittens, which I'll make into a wall hanging when they are finished.  I've enjoyed stitching these small charts. 

And the November Snowflowers Diaries SAL.  Only one more to stitch for this year.  I plan to make all of these squares into a quilt for charity.

I've been doing some personal stitching for an upcoming grandson, Jayden Thomas, due any day now.  We are leaving on a trip to visit with the family and new grand baby, starting tomorrow.   Of course, I will be taking a couple of stitching projects along for the long ride to South Florida.

Smalls for October

I've been able to catch up on the Snowflower Diaries SAL and will start soon on the November chart, which is a beautiful peacock.

I've only done a couple of small geometric squares for a quilt for World of Charity Stitching.  Everyone picks out a chart or two and stitches in the colors they choose.  

I've also started on a Dachshund piece for a future quilt.
