Slow Sunday Stitching 3/13/16

I will be joining Kathy today with some slow stitching.  I finally have the missing floss needed to finish this piece.  I hope to get all those 'holes' filled in and then thru the week I can work on the backstitching - and there is a lot of that.

I, also, have two labels to get on their respective quilts so I can truly call them a finish. 

And today, the 6th year of Hands2Help officially opens with sign-ups.  Be sure to visit over at Sarah's for the details, scheduled events and linkies, charities, and full information. It will be wonderful if we can top last year's count of 147 quilts gifted.

Sewingly Yours,

Working together

Last June we had a booth at our parish festival.  We had children of all ages color fabric (backed with freezer paper) to make the above baby blocks. That way they could participate in our goal of working with our had to do a corporal work of Mercy and see that even they can be of help.  We've made quite a few quilts using the blocks. They are given to low income mothers at their first postpartum visit at the local Mommy & Me clinic.
