Tempting Tangles Welcome SAL Part 4 and 5

Tempting Tangles SAL Part 4 & 5
14ct White Aida
DMS Floss
Here is my current progress with the Tempting Tangles SAL.  I still have some back stitching to complete on section 5 and sections 6 is ready to be stitched.  Decided to stay with the colors listed on the pattern, but may of the other stitchers have changed it up a bit and it fun to see everyone's pieces develop. 
Deborah of Tempting Tangle is hosting another SAL called MYSTERY starting 3 December.  You can get the details here or on FB.  I am joining this the MYSTERY SAL and this time I plan to change the colors a bit, even though I am usually one to stick to the colors as directed. 
Thanks for stopping.  Hope you will join me on this Tempting Tangles MYSTERY SAL adventure.

Tempting Tangles Welcome SAL Part 3

Here is part 3 of the FB Tempting Tangles SAL.  I am working on part 4 and I also have part 5 to do as well.  Hope to make great progress this weekend while we are driving to Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma.  It is a 5 hour drive each way so that gives me 10 hours to stitch.  Woohoo!!

Finished this freebie from Alita Designs for a religious themed quilt for the cross stitch group Quilts for Older Children and Adults.   I am so happy to share my love of cross stitch with folks that have serious illnesses.  Hopefully it can bring a little comfort to their day.

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.
