one more charity quilt

I finished the Farm quilt top for the nursing home this week, the WOCS members did a excellent job on the cross stitching. This design is not what I had planned on making, but sometimes things just don't go the way you want them to. So I walked away for the night and the next day I made this one, which to me was a plain border, so out came the embroidery machine and I did a Machine applique pumpkin and two embroidered chicks.  I have one more top to finish for the nursing home and that's the butterfly quilt top. I sent the cat pillows to the nursing home this week that Dona and Pam from WOCS had stitched, my part was to stuff the pillows, add their bows and send them on their way.  The pillows were a really big hit at the center and the group has offered to make more.

Last night I started on the frog and dragonfly quilt for my niece's baby... She is due in January so I have some time to get it done.. Her Brother will also be welcoming a new member to his home, they are expecting a little boy in February.  Looks like my husband's brother will have his hands full next year with the new grand children to spoil.  Oh yea, spoiling is what a grand parent is supposed to do and I think we all do it so well.
