Happy Mail & Sunday Stash June 10, 2018

Craziness since last Sunday. One thing after another. I just came up for air.

I received some Happy Mail. Robin at Rsislandcrafts was doing a give-a-way to celebrated 5000 subscribers. I happen to be out with a friend and was waiting for her in the lobby. I decided to see what new post Robin may have put up. I actually caught the live post. She was having the random counter pick the name. There was My Name. What!!! Happy Dance for sure. This made my day!! The prize is a lovely wall hanging made by Robin. It is hanging on the door into my sewing room. I it see everyday, all day long.

Along with the beautiful wall hanging, Robin sent me some goodies!
Thank you so much, Robin.

As for the pink quilt, I turned it into Charity Sew group. UFO is gone!

This week I have been working on 2 flannel pajama shorts for my SIL. It's his birthday next week. He really likes the ones I made him for Christmas. Hopefully he will enjoy these.

My sister in law brought me the quilt her mother and her started hand sewing in 1983, when she was pregnant with her first daughter. Her mother passed away over 25 years ago. She can't finish it because of issues with her hands. I said I would finish it but I only do machine quilting. She was okay with that. The quilt is browns and blues sampler. The hand stitching is large stitches but very minimal.  The batting is very thin poly, which worries me. I can't take it apart because her mothers loving stitches are in there and not replaceable . My sister in law will be a grandmother for the first time in September and wants to give the quilt to her daughter by the time the baby is born. I will do my best to get it done.
I don't know if I should do more quilting next to the hand stitching. Thread looks like it is so old that it may fall apart.

Would like your opinions on what to do with this quilt.

  1. I'm sorry, but I'm not experienced enough to offer opinions about your quilting situation. However, that top is lovely! Congratulations on your win!

  2. Congrats on your new wall hanging and on finding time to stitch this week. Hope this next week is a bit slower and you have time to stitch.
