I love to do cross-stitch. I love the outlining and embroidery at the end that just makes the stitching pop! So one way to combine this love with helping others is through Love Quilts -- a group of very talented and hard working and loving women who stitch and sew cross-stitch blocks into quilts for kids who have life-long or life-threatening illnesses.
This is my latest -- a butterfly for Karon. She loves purple, and butterflies.
Next, I will be stitching for Tylynn who loves rainbows, the sun, clouds, stars, planets and the moon! So mine will be a bright rainbow and sun over a cloud that says "Follow Your Dreams." I'll add some pics when I get some done -- haven't even started it yet!
And, just so you can see an example of a finished quilt, here's one that I contributed to from earlier this year. It was for Shane, who likes the great outdoors.
