Virtual Stitch In and Gift for Maddie

On Saturday Terri from my ILCS Yahoo group hosted a virtual stitch in. The idea was to start stitching at 12pm your time and stitch til 6pm. I worked on, this should be no surprise, "A Quaker Christmas". I got most of one of the large motifs from page 1 done as you can see in this picture.

I have done more since the stitch in and finished the motif I started on Saturday as well as a couple of smaller ones.



I am now on the last of the large motifs on page 1, the ones on the edges run into the next pages and so will do a little jumping around on pages so I can finish each motif. I'm doing this so the flow of the color of thread continues with each motif, does that make any sense.

Gift for Maddie....



In the mail today I received this beautiful handmade card and adorable socks for Maddie from Shelley. Thank You so much Shelley for thinking of me and my little sweetie. I know she will be happy to get them to keep her little feet warm this winter.

Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Hey Rene,

Great progress on Quaker Christmas. I also got a lot done on the Macaws during the Stitchin. Hopefully we can keep that going. It was fun. I will be posting later in the week on my blog with my progress
