WOYWW #180

WOYWW #180

As it’s getting nearer to Christmas I’m getting busier and busier and having difficulty in finding time on a Wednesday to join in with the weekly desk hop. But I miss my visits to The Stamping Ground so I’ve managed a quick post this morning.


My table is as I left it last night after an evening of making more Christmas cards. I’ve still a dozen or so to make so I really do need to knuckle down and get them finished this week.


On the corner of the table is a little pile of cross stitched squares that are waiting to be photographed to go on my sewing blog.


They are for a charity called Stitches Of Love And Kindness (SOLAK) and they make quilts for adults and children with long term or terminal illness.

The idea is that a family member will request a quilt and give us a list of possible themes and colours that the recipient would like and we all sign up on the date base for the squares we want to stitch until they have all eight squares covered, then they are sent to the organizer and the quilt is made up.

I signed up to stitched mine for a lady who wanted handbags and fashion and another who asked for no particular theme but wanted bright Pinks, Purples and Yellows so I went with birds and flowers.

You can see them in close up over at I’d rather Be Stitching!


So that’s it for another week.

Don’t forget to pop across to The Stamping Ground and add your name to the list of busy crafters this week, so we can call in for a coffee and a nosy and thanks for stopping by to visit me. I’ll be by to see what you’re up to later.


Happy Crafting!

Love your busy, busy desk this week - looks as though you are well on course to have all the cards you need before Christmas. The cross stitch square are brilliant and I think the quilts are a wonderful project to be involved with. Happy WOYWW - have a great week - Elizabeth x #43
