Charity stitches and exchange goodies.

Here I am again . The kids have broken up for half term , so blogging while I have the chance , lol.
I've been doing some small squares for Stitch for Charity . Six small logo squares with 'Made With Love' , 'Li entsoe ka lerato' (made with love in the language used in Lesotho) and two with names on for the kids who have moved into Rachel's Place.
I've also made a start on some Digimon squares . I came across a wonderful blog by Dawn , who charts all of these characters and offers them up for everyone to use. I contacted her and asked if it would be ok to use them for the quilts , and she kindly agreed . So we now have around 200 new charts to use . This is great as we can get tired of doing the same stuff all the time .
If you want to see the charts, got to Anime Stitching and follow the links . If you don't want to see the charts , go and look anyway as Dawn does some great stitching as well.
I have also received my Autumn exchange from Lainey . As usual I am behind on getting organised and sending mine out , but here are some pics of what I received.
I must be getting better at this , I actually remembered to take some photos before ripping off the wrapping , lol.
Ribbon , thread and buttons and pins.
Stitchy fabric and backing fabric. Hoop , frame , card and notebook. And a gorgeous cushion , I love the bird , so cute.
Thanks again Lainey , it's lovely , and the kids loved the choc .
Hopefully I'll be back soon to show what I sent to Lainey , trying to get my bum in gear .
Thanks for dropping by ,

What a wonderful exchange from Lainey! I love your charity stitching, too. Enjoy your kids' half term. We've got the same thing going on here. I'm hoping for plenty of stitching time w/o having to do the school runs--we'll see how that goes!

I allways feel so blessed when I see your charity stitchings.
There are so many children in this world needing some one, even a stanger ,to show them love.
It was very sweet from Dawn to allow you use her charts for these wonderful projects.
Me and my stitching buddyes here in Finland are taking part of
the project to collect warm mittens and socks for the
gypsy-children in eastern-europe
( Romania,Bulgaria,Albania).
The children live in therible
conditions and the cold wintern is coming.
It is a project of The Christian Patmos Charity.
You did really get a great gift on your exchange,lovely stash and the pillow is cute.
