Butterfly Gifts Stitched by Jan

Jan shared this photo of her finished butterflies in the Stitching the Night Away Facebook group recently. She stitched them up as gifts for a weekend family gathering and everyone got to pick one to take home with them!
How awesome is that?

Love Marriage Equality Celebration Stitched by Amanda B.

I think Amanda is the first one to finish stitching one of the Love celebration patterns (I haven’t even stitched a whole one yet myself, I need to pick up some red and orange floss)

Independence Eagle Stitched by Denise

Denise shared this finish with us on the Facebook page awhile ago and I forgot to add it to the gallery. I love the idea of using the bandana as an accent or mat fabric too. Great work, Denise!

March Ornament Design Stitched by Shaunterria

Shaunterria-Live-Laugh-Love-OrnamentNot only did she finish both versions of the ornament and sandwich them together as front and back, Shaunterria tried her hand at a blanket stitch around the edges ~ and I’d say she did a beautiful job of it too! πŸ™‚

You can purchase the March Ornament as an individual chart by clicking here.

Stop by Shaunterria’s blog at http://ca11i0pe.blogspot.com/ to say hello and see what she’s stitching. And don’t forget to check out her guest author posts right here on STNA too.

Happy Stitching!

Have you done any Charity Stitching?

Thanks to our friend Loretta, I found WOCS. World Of Charity Stitching. They have a Yahoo group, and they want to make all kinds of nifty things for people in long term care…

This is the blog Β link: Β Β http://worldofcharitystitching.blogspot.ca/

I signed up for the Brushstroke Butterfly Quilt they had on, which happens to be a pattern designed by Loretta, and I have included my version of it below. They are a kind group of people who take your cross stitched squares and sew them into quilts, walker bags, or just finish them into bookmarks. I signed up and had to be finished in about a month, but I did it and mailed it about 10 days late. They accepted it graciously and I hope to do more for them in the future. Rachel in AZ (and the other lovely ladies) is always supportive and puts a tremendous amount of work in. I’m going to add this to the StitchbyRachel Pinterest Boards too…

I have to give Laurel a really big shout out here today ~ she is always one of the first to finish stitching an ornament after I release it to the group and she always does great work. Moreover, she always shares her photos with me – totally makes my day to see her finished projects every single time.

Please take a minute and hop on by Laurel’s blog today ~ http://xslaurelcountsxs.blogspot.com/

January Snowflake stitched by Shaunterria

anuary-Snowflake-stitched-by-ShaunterriaShaunterria used a really interesting finishing technique with her snowflake finish; she used some iron-on vinyl on the back and cut it out so it is flat. Interesting option for those who don’t want to do sewing and stuffing of all their ornaments this year πŸ˜‰

I’m always learning new things and getting new inspiration from our stitching community ~ I truly appreciate all the emails and photos that everyone shares with us here.

Thank you all. Happy Stitching!
