Stitching

Yes, I have been doing some . My rotation has still not really come into action , lol. but I have been stitching quite a bit.

 Two any child squares for Love Quilts .
   This was a lovely pretty one to do.
  I am hoping they will make their way onto quilts soon.
 This is a square for a named quilt and it very nearly ended up in the bin.
 The fractional stitches and back stitch were a total pain , and I was plagued by frogs and knots.
 So glad to get this one done. I am pleased with how it turned out, but I will be happy  to never stitch another train again .

   
These two snowmen are for fund raising. One of the LQUK members has offered to make a couple of wall hangings to be auctioned this Christmas time . Can't wait to see them.
 I have another square almost done , so will show that next time ,along with some progress on Rosita (hopefully) .

Thanks for dropping by ,
Cath

Hi Cath, I am blog reading instead of doing HW!! I haven't visited you for a while and so read back.. some super stitching and a variety of designs, all lovely.
Hope the sun is shining for you today, it is glorious here. I am still stitching Fairies... but had other things to do this last month or two.

All of the squares are wonderful--love the butterflies--so bright and coloful, the trains square is really cool and looks like a lot of work, and Batman will certainly be loved by a little boy.
