Alisha's Square


Happy dance! It's finished! I had to do it fast because I have another one to do for Quilts 4 Kids in Australia, and it can take up to 6 weeks for the squares to get there. This square and the other I have to stitch are due March 30th, which is about 7 weeks from now! The first 3 I sent have been received! I was so excited when I found out they got there safely. It's neat to think that some of my work is in Australia, a place I have never visited! I really like the way this square turned out. I wasn't sure I would like it at first. I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I had to take out some of the stitching. There were 2 symbols that were almost identical and I thought it was only 1 symbol. So I had done parts that were supposed to be purple and I used rose. I guess I could have left it the way it was, but I really thought the purple would make it look better. I think it was worth me taking it out and doing it over in the right color!
Today was clothes washing day! So I stitched in between putting clothes in the washing machine, then putting them in the dryer, and then folding them. Now each family member has to get their own clothes and put them up. lol Better go- it's getting late. Have a happy day!
