11/30/2015-WOCS cards
Happy Monday.   I wanted to post the pictures of the cards I made for WOCS, since I seem to post the finished cross stitch items, but not the complete "finishes"



The cards are either 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, 5 x 5 or 5 x 7 and will go out in the  mail tomorrow to one of the groups owners. She will then distribute them to a senior citizens center.  The group also makes quilts, walker bags and a few other things.  It's a great way to share your love of stitching if you are looking for a great charity to support.

This is the finished ornament for an ornament exchange I participated in.  The recipient loves dragons and the colors pink and blue. I hope she likes this as it's not your typical ornament.
Happy Stitching,

Smalls Update

It's that time of the month again, no silly, the other time of the month.  Time for my
Smalls post, sponsored by Heather at Stitching Lotus.  I feel like I didn't stitch that much, but when I look at my finishes I have quite a few.

A few non-Christmas finishes.  The "Thank you cards" were for my son's high school soccer coaches and the other pattern was one I had started a verrrrrrrrrrrry long time ago and I dug it out and finished it.
This dragon will be turned into an ornament as part of an ornament exchange.  The recepient loves dragons, pink and blue, hence the colors and dragon on an ornament.



The above were all made into card for WOCS.

Card for my dad, a train buff.

 I have the cards done and will try and post them  next week.  All in all, I made around 35 cards for WOCS and 9 for personal use.  I still have 5 more to make and then Christmas 2015 stitching will be done!  Yay, as I  am ready to stitch other things!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
