Stitching For Friends and Friends Stitching For Me

Quite some time ago I saw this post on Carolyn's blog.  Her Alphabet Zoo Round Robin had made it back home, but it wasn't finished!  Being the kind, wonderful person I am I left a comment on Carolyn's blog offering to stitch a block for her if she decided she needed a couple of needles to get the round robin finished.  My good friend Kathy also made the same kind offer.  Some time passed, and Carolyn did decide to take us up on our offer and Beatrice decided to get in on the fun too since there were 3 blocks to be done.

Kathy and Beatrice stitched theirs up in quick order, and when I arrived at Kathy's last Friday afternoon she passed the piece onto me.  I was going to tuck it away until I finished the wedding sampler I NEED to get done before September 10th.  Kathy told me it was such a quick stitch that I could finish it before I left on Sunday.

As usual, Kathy was right!

The block I stitched

While so many have been stitching for me, it was nice to return the favour for someone else.  Speaking of stitching for me, I had more quilt squares returned to me this past weekend.

That was so nice of you to offer to stitch one of Carolyn's blocks, Dani. The whole piece looks fabulous!

I'm sure it's fun to receive those pretty quilt blocks in the mail, too--they all look great!

Those blocks are beautiful (and a little comforting). I was so nervous that I picked the right colors --- I see that I did! :-)

I know --- a silly worry --- but a worry non-the-less.

Hugs!

The Alphabet Zoo is lovely - wouldn't have thought red would work alone, but it does.. Quilt squares are beautifully Christmas-sy. It's so nice to be able to share stitching! - Tracy

What a nice offer Dani! The three of you did an awesome job on the alphabet and I'm sure Carolyn will be thrilled.
Your quilt squares are all looking pretty fabulous too.
