Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, I met my stitching deadlines!

And......relax.  All of my current deadlines for this month's charity stitching have been met.  I enjoyed the things I made (especially this butterfly napkin set) but I'm glad to be done because I'm itching to get back to my own projects.  

This set is going to a raffle to help a cancer patient with expenses.  I do need to wash them and I am a tad bit nervous about that.  I'll put fusible webbing onto the back and hope and pray for the best!

This one is my favorite.  The flower petals are done in the "strawberry stitch," which was a new stitch for me.  I use a split stitch on the stems and satin stitching on the leaves and some of the butterfly sections.  French knots and backstitching finishes out the butterfly.  All of these same stitches, except the strawberry stitch, are repeated in each of the napkins.  I really love how they turned out.

You've seen these two already.  :0)

And then this little guy finishes out the set.  

I'm tired, I may take a couple of days "off."  We'll see.  I usually do right after I meet a deadline.  But usually by day 2 my stitchy bug is yelling in my ear to get back to it.  So we'll see what happens, lol.
