**Update: Just wanted to let everyone know that all three screenings took place over the weekend of June 23rd and in total my pieces raised $438 for Equality Now and the other charities that each screening was supporting. This was amazing!! Well beyond what I was expecting, as I would have been satisfied if the pieces went for $20-$30 each, although I was hoping it would be more  Smiley If you're curious, you can see the breakdown of how much each piece raised on my blog at: http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/2010/07/firefly-fundraising-success.html



That's right, more Firefly stuff! Along with the group picture I originally stitched, I'm going to donate these three character pieces to the silent auction for the Vancouver Can't Stop the Serenity Screening (google it if you want more info Smiley ). Each picture was stitched on a piece of 18 count cream Aida cloth and is in a 4 X 6 inch frame. I picked up the frames at a local dollar store and got a large piece of the Aida cloth (there's still about half left) for just $13.00. Overall, a nicely inexpensive project.

The borders on the pieces either came directly from, or are modifications of the ones found in, Better Homes and Gardens 2001 Cross Stitch Designs (http://www.amazon.ca/Better-Homes-Gardens-Stitch-Designs/dp/0696221535/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1265232510&sr=8-1). The lettering on the Wash and River pieces also came from this book. The lettering on the Jayne picture comes from an old Stoney Creek cross stitch book, now out of print, called Pig Tales (http://www.patternsonline.com/Patterns/List.aspx). I love that book! I think I've only stitched one or two of the piggy designs, but it's my go-to lettering whenever I need something small that looks kinda fancy.







So I think this concludes my charity stitching for now. I'm going to stitch up another group picture and keep it for myself. I've also designed a Zoe and Wash piece for the boyfriend, which I'm hoping to start stitching soon. The individual character patterns are available on my blog, just look under the My Free Patterns heading on the left side, they're pretty easy to find.

Thanks for looking,
amber

I don't suppose I could beg the patterns for the sprites (especially Jayne and River) off you?
