Here is Littlehouse Needleworks "Good Tidings"  all stitched up and ready to be made into an ornament of some type.  So happy to have this one done.  I featured my progress on Kaye's Friday Frolics blog a week ago.  I have a few more finishes to post about later this week.

Violets for Q4OAC

Alita Designs
14ct Aida DMC Floss

This is a freebie from Alita Designs that I found on Pinterest.  Unfortunately, I did not pay attention to the pattern requirements and it is too big for the quilt.  I know Jeneen will find another quilt for it. 
Completed squares always find a home.  If you want to find out more about stitching for Quilts for Older Children and Adults you can find them on Facebook or Yahoo Groups.

Tempting Tangles SAL Part 2

I completed part 2 of The Welcome from Tempting Tangles SAL on FB.  This is such an easy and stress free SAL.  Keeping it simple with 14ct and DMC floss, plan to work on part 3 tonight while watching TV.  Maybe you would like to join us at Tempting Tangles on Facebook.

A Lizzy Kate Finish!!

I have finally finished stitching a Lizzie Kate pattern that I swapped with Justine. I started this project in February 2015 as part of a Crazy January Challenge that had participants stitching a a new project every day from 1 January to 28 February in honor of So Cal Debbie.  Debbie was a wonderful cross stitcher who passed away much too early.  She loved to share her hobby with her stitching friends and she was always one to leave a comment and engage in a bit of conversation.  It was a small thing to do, but so nice and memorable.  The kind of interaction you need in this crazy world.  I think this sums up what we all do for each other by supporting our stitching habits and just listening when we need some encouragement.  I have made many friends here and I cherish each of you.
