Frank is DONE!

 
Drum roll please!  I am happy to announce that Frank is done!  I finished the last stitches last Sunday afternoon while on our way to our nieces' birthday party. I now need to wash it and have it framed. I am hoping to hang Frank in my new sewing room. 
 


This week, I made two place mats for Meals on Wheels. The place mats will be put into gift bags that are delivered along with the meals on Christmas day.  This is an annual project for the London Friendship Quilters' Guild. They are ready to take to our next meeting so labels can be added.

 
 
I also made binding for a charity quilt made by members of the Elgin Piecemakers for an adult chemo patient at our local hospital.  I only have part of one side to finish stitching tomorrow. Each member of the guild made a different coloured slab--they were put together into one top which was quilted by one of our Heather's husband. I offered to do the binding.
 
 


Did I ever mention that I love orange!!!???


I will be linking to slow Sunday stitching at Kathy's blog.

I went fabric shopping this past week. I just wanted to get some flannel for the backing of the baby quilt I just made..., however,  several pieces of fabric leaped into my bag and came home with me. 


The two darker fabrics are for pillow cases for our local Inn Out of the Cold program.

 
I am sure it will all be put to good use, someday!

  8. Frank is very modern and will look great when framed. Meals on Wheels recipients will be delighted to have placemats. I just hate it when fabric leaps in my shopping cart.

  10. Is your cross stitch missing a little bit of brown in the upper right corner? To match the left side? I hope I do not sound awful asking that, perhaps it's a missed stitch or two or maybe it's me being silly. X

  11. Congratulations! It should be hung in a public place, not hidden in your sewing room. It's great.

  13. Anyone who doesn't love orange is untrustworthy in my book! Frank looks fantastic, congratulations on getting him finished up. Make sure you show us how he looks when he's framed and hanging in your sewing room too :) I think those place mats are such a great idea, a really thoughtful gift to receive on Christmas day.
