Cool Cat

I've really been on a stitching jag this month and here's my recent finish - Cool Cat (a design by Donna Sadler). I stitched this for Q4OC. It is being donated to the Cuddle Cushions group in Alabama, who makes pillows for children in hospitals suffering from life threatening illnesses.

NFL Huddles Squares

Here's pics of the 2 NFL Huddles Squares I stitched for Q4OC that are being donated to either Love Quilts or Binky MT. These were such fun to stitch.

Soccer Square

I completed my soccer square for Q4OC that will be donated to Love Quilts Brazil for a sports theme quilt. This chart is from the book "Sports That Count" by Gloria & Pat Designs.

October Update

It's been quite awhile since I posted anything here, so have lots to update. My vacation to Indiana was fantastic. I loved being able to spend time with my grandgirl & daughter. Katie is already 3 and growing up so fast. Had a great 60th birthday. The day before I left for Indiana, my son & DIL took me out to Outback for dinner. Went to Olive Garden with my daughter, grandgirl & sister. Then went to Best Buy to purchase a new digital camera with the giftcard I received.
I've been having trouble with my eyes - lots of large spots and floaters that are just so very annoying. Got my new glasses, but the progressives were set too high, so the glasses are being remade. Also seem to be having trouble with dry eyes, so the doctor gave me some Restasis samples to see how that works for me.
I finally got cable TV hooked up and it's so great having good reception on every channel for a change. I'm enjoying all the additional channels now and love being able to watch all the Law & Order reruns and Animal Planet programs.
I have finished stitching 3 charity squares since I last posted. The first two are more quilt block squares for WOCS (double wedding ring design and attic windows design). The third square is a transportation theme for Q4OC that will be sent to Quilts for Kids in Australia. The design is from the June 2006 issue of the UK Cross Stitcher magazine by Maria Diaz.
