World of Charity Stitching

I've read about World of Charity Stitching before on blogs.  While I was interested, I was also nervous about it.  Would my stitching be acceptable?  Could I meet the deadline? 

I don't really have a bucket list, but if I did certainly you'd find learning to quilt on my list.  Right now, I don't have a sewing machine and my hands are kind of full so it remains a dream.

What's the next best thing?  Of course, it's contributing a square to be placed in a quilt.  So that's my exciting project.  I had hoped to share a picture of my completed square, but the frogs came to visit me!  It was so bad I had to start my square over!!  But I had promised a post today so I wanted to at least let you in on my exciting project.  I'll post a picture soon.  I really am excited about it.

I have been stitching....

even if I haven't been blogging!  Need proof?  OK.  I can do that. 

Sorry for the poor quality of pictures - my DH took them with his cell phone.  But at least I do have some proof....

First up is my HAED Kites. 



Do you see a change?  Neither do I....but I know I put some stitches in there!  I promise there really are other pretty colors in this pattern.  Eventually I'll get to them!  This was my first HAED and I've learned so much from it (what not to do!!!! - but I'm still plugging away at it).

Next up is the HEAD Twins.



YEAH!  Page 1 finished!  Still loving the colors in this one.  And I just can't bring myself to put it done once I start working on it.  Love Love Love it!!!!!!

Next up is the Santa Nutcracker.



My DH said - "but he's headless".  Maybe I'll work on that next time.

And last up is the Nativity.



Yes!  A finish! 

DS is busy enjoying his summer.  Fishing, horseback riding, fun and games.  Next week is camp.  He's really looking forward to that.

Come back on Monday, I have something new to show you.  I'm pretty excited about it.

Again, sorry for the terrible pictures.

Hope everyone has a great weekend full of stitching time.
