More has come in via my mailbox.
Honestly, I am always so overwhelmed with the generosity of others.
When I opened these my neighbor girl was over. She had a no school day and I had a no childcare day. I didn’t know if she’d want to hang around with only me but it worked out just fine. She got inducted into the quilting world.
First we had a package from Cheryl H….a quilt was inside along with goodies.
Then we got a box of things from Ruth P. Here’s a baby sized top…
Here’s a bigger Jelly Roll Race quilt top. I love the colors, don’t you?
Then there were scraps. Most were a bit bigger yardage pieces.
You can see I have the perfect person to help me out with all the sorting.
From there I asked her if she wanted to see my quilting room. So far, that hasn’t happened before. She’s come during childcare hours or around supper time. I decided to show her my quilting machine and let her have a go at machine quilting.
We popped the baby quilt that Ruth had sent immediately on the frame. There was so much to learn…what’s an iron, how to pick thread, what the cozy stuff in the middle was called….
I had her watch for a bit. I showed her how to make a big looping design and she did the last half of the quilt with me close by. It’s far from perfect but it’s a charity quilt and it will do nicely.
We had a fun day hanging out. She even offered to help me clean the sewing room….what a sweetie.
Thanks everyone for the goodies…and a special thanks to my neighbor girl for keeping my life interesting. I can’t begin to explain how much I treasure our relationship.
