For those of you who are unfamiliar with kissing pillows, they are a project of EGA for deploying soldiers. These little designs will be sewn and stuffed into pillows and distributed to soldiers at Joint Base Lewis/McChord. My EGA chapter has already given out 20,000+. They are a big hit with soldiers and their kids!
DD#1 stitched 2 of these. And my 84 yr old MIL stitched the "I Love You" portion on the other 8 (after I taught her how to cross stitch-that is another whole story). You CAN teach old dogs new tricks!!
Crowning the Tree
Misc mystery linen piece
Called for CC and GAST threads
Love this design! I did substitute one thread-CC Calico Kitty was too orange for my taste, so I used Victorian Motto Sampler red F3
Sewing Chest Designs
25 ct linen
I got quite a bit accomplished on this one over the weekend. Now it will get tucked away until I am needing another project that I can see without a magnifier. Hopefully one more good workday will see this one finished.
Welcome to all my new followers! I love to read your comments.
Have a great week!
