Tracing stitcheries

I have a friend who has broken/shattered her leg/knee.
So to keep her busy I am tracing some stitcheries.
Sending them off in the post. If she manages to get them done, well good on her..
It doesn't matter if they take years.
I borrowed a light box from another quilting friend and off I went.
I think I need one of these.

I bought these patterns many years ago.
They are so cute.

I have finished tracing LETTERS TO SANTA. 

Now I am on to tracing WINTER WONDERLAND.

This should keep my friend busy for a while.

Love my lightbox, looks like it's keeping you both busy. They are lovely patterns, will have to add them to my never ending list. Lovely idea for your friend :)

She is lucky to have a wonderful friend, hope her knee / leg gets better soon.

You are such a good friend.. Gorgeous Christmas stitcheries for her to do.
Maybe you could use your Piggy Bank money for a light box if you haven't spent it'
I bought one on Ebay for just over $100 the size of an A4 sheet.

That's such a good idea, you are a good friend, Jo. Hope her leg heals soon.

Just caught up on a few posts Jo. Sad about your FIL. love your panels and i'm sure your friend will love that you were thinking of her in her time of need.

Yes they will take her a long time. I made the Winter Wonderland quilt and it took me years. I have a few other Crab Apple Hill patterns just waiting for me to start them.

It is so thoughtful of you to do this for her. Tracing takes awhile too, and a light table is a MUST! Your arms will hurt holding them up to a window.
