Counted cross stitch start

 I've started a counted cross stitch kit that I've had for a while now.

Kind of slow going because my eyes aren't what they were and
I can't stitch as long as I would like
but I really want to get this done in a timely manner.

Our theme this year at church is
Standing on God's Promises

So I thought this is the perfect time to do this counted cross stitch
and a perfect gift to give Pastor Leatherman and Kathy.



This is what I've have done so far.
It looks purple in the picture but it is blue.


I'm hoping if I post my progress it will give me incentive to keep at it.

Another Baby Blanket

This is the baby blanket for June


 Like the others it is made up of 70 weave-it squares sewn together.
The yarn I use is Caron Simply Soft.
Blankets go to the newborn babies at the local hospital.

Scarves

I've knitted a couple more scarves.
I'm knitting a bunch of them for the teens from our church to
take on a missions trip this coming winter.
