Two new starts for WOCS!
I am stitching a purple butterfly square for World of Charity Stitching. The members all stitch the same butterfly pattern, but in different colors. The squares will be made into a beautiful quilt! You may think it's not centered in the Q-Snap frame, but I did that on purpose, since it will only be 6"x6" square, and then I can save the leftover Aida to make bookmarks.
I also started stitching Fairies, a chart from a book, Top 100 Cross Stitch Motifs by Michaela Learner. I am stitching 2 over 2 on 28-count opalescent Zweigart evenweave and using DMC Pearlescent and Light Effects floss. These fairies will be so pretty on a Fairy quilt to be donated to a child at a domestic abuse shelter.
The pretty Q-snap huggies are made by Christine Wilson and you can order them on her website.
Gracie suggested a postcard exchange and I sent and received 5 postcards from stitchers in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and the United Kingdom. My cat Billy wanted to be in the pic too!
