Stitches for friends!

My friend Nan is making a quilt with the  Prairie Schooler Alphabet so our Thur. group is helping her out by stitching some of the letters for her. I'm doing S is for Sewing..what a fun stitch!

Anne (Nan's  daughter) was struggling with the next piece and was going to throw it away...I volunteered to finish it for her!!! it is quite difficult because of some long crosses over 1&2
John  Clayton
 This is what it will look done...It really is so lovely..I couldn't bear to see it get thrown out. I have worked on the trees and so far so good...Anne has stitched the trees on the left so she actually did quite a bit!

Have a great week all and stitch with happy fingers!

Love the PS square. Nan's quilt will look fantastic with the PS alphabet.
That John Clayton piece is lovely! I'm so glad that you've decided to stitch it. I would hate to see it thrown away too.
Hope to see you next Saturday.

Ah, don't you just love the PS Alphabet series? I'm currently working on them too! Such fun.
The John Clayton piece is very pretty!

The PS alphabet series is so so beautiful. I love each and every letter of it.
It would have been a pity to throw the John Clayton piece away. It looks wonderful. I love the scenery.

I'm looking forward to stitching my block for Nan! So lovely of you to finish up that John Clayton I've done one of the smaller ones and yes they're a challege but the effect is awesome!
