Fabric Seeds Giveaway
Thursday, April 17, 2014
Our group had lots of fun stitching these unique Dolly Mama charts for a quilt recently. One of our members, Bonnie C., had purchased these charts for her own use. After she stitched them, she decided to share the charts and remaining floss with some of our members to make a memorable quilt for a senior lady in a senior care facility.
A lot of these sayings are so true about seniors, as well as non-seniors. There are lot of us who can relate to them.
At the present time we have a "dogs" theme open. Members are stitching charts from their stash or from some of the freebie websites. We also have a "Geometric" theme currently open, where members are stitching different charts from the DMC-USA website of Geometric squares.
We are planning a couple of new themes beginning next week.
Cross stitchers: come join us in our stitching fun and help to brighten the day of a senior or child. You can join by clicking on the Yahoo tab at the top of our blog. If you decide our group does not fit your stitching needs, you can unsubscribe at any time and re-join later at any time.

Bonnie C., one of our most prolific and generous quilters, made a suggestion last year that we make a quilt theme of months of the year. Each member had the option to choose which month they would like to stitch and to add the name of the month if it was not part of the chart. Our members came up with some wonderful squares as depicted in the photo array. This has been a fun theme and I know there will be two beautiful quilts created and donated to a senior center. There will be some smiling faces on the day these are delivered.

Jeneen, one of our group members, has organized a stitch-along with another group, Quilts for Older Children. She has organized this SAL by providing the fabric for her group and has found a cute freebie, called Kitty Love. She is also providing the fat quarters to be used in the quilt. Isn't this a wonderful way to share the love of stitching with others? Our group, WOCS would like to thank Jeneen and her group, Q4OC, for stitching these cute little kitties, which will be made into a beautiful quilt or quilts by one of our quilters and donated to a child or senior citizen sometime this year.
