I intended to get this finished up on Sunday but that didn't happen--it finally happened today and now I can cross one more goal off my list! YIPPEE!! This was a kit I purchased I can't even remember how long ago and, like I said previously, the colors are not very appealing to me (seems like it might have looked different online or in the catalogue). So it will either be a donation or MAY wind up as a table topper (though it really doesn't go with anything in the house).
In between other things I stitch on, I have a few neck pillows that I work on for soldiers departing from DFW. These are already cut out for us and the only thing we have to do is stitch. There's apparently an elderly lady in a nursing home that really likes to turn them right side out, which I think is a WONDERFUL thing--gives her something to do. Then someone else stuffs and stitches the opening closed so it's an assembly line-type operation. And our fabulous soldiers get a LITTLE bit of comfort on the long flight over (and I hope they use them afterwards).
This was taken by one of the gals who works with the USO and passes out the pillows at DFW. I think it's so cute!
