CROSS STITCH ABC BOYS A-I









Made over a decade ago from "Cross Country Stitching" magazine, beginning with the April 1995 issue. I began on the astronaut when my first son was in the hospital with pneumonia. After finishing boys A, B, and C, I found that the aida cloth I had worked on was not the same as the large amount I'd purchased, so had to begin again so the blocks would all look alike. They've been sitting in a box for almost twelve years. My boys don't need any more quilts and so I thought that Newborns In Need could use them to make a quilt to raffle off.
All of the blocks, plus various yards of fabric and cotton batting have been donated today. I'll share the rest of the boys in the next few days. I love the colors used. They just make me smile.
ps All 48 cloths/soap were delivered to the Red Cross also. They are very much appreciated:~D

    I am amazed at your talent! The quilt will be wonderful - and I'm sure will bring in "the big bucks" for Newborns in Need.

    I love that you so willingly share your gifted talents with others - you are an inspiration!

    WOW! Just ... WOW!
    What a wonderful gift to them...and I hope it makes a ton of money in the raffle...(let me know when, and how, okay? I have 3 little boys and would be willing to buy a few chances on it!)
    You're a wonder...
    (And DANIEL...such a nice looking young man...growing up too fast, isn't he, Mom?)

    They are soooo cute! And it's a nice idea to donate them to a worthy cause...
