Slow Sunday Stitching

Another week has flown by, I spent most of it trying to get my Frolic quilt done, which I finally did.  I kept running into all sorts of problems, of my own doing, by sewing HST's wrong, sewing a whole row on wrong.  Me and my seam ripper had a thing going this week.  So glad that is finished!

The other thing I did was make a lot of masks.   I sent one to my BIL Roger in North Carolina, and he shared a picture:

I made some for my SIL's employees that are required to start wearing them on Monday.   I also made some for my daughters and their families.

And Kyleigh and I the other day.  I made some for her brothers, mother and father this morning.

I also wanted to share, that same BIL in North Carolina sent me these yesterday that he had stitched for me.  He knows I love lighthouses, mermaids, sailboats.  When he was here at Thanksgiving, he ran out of his project he was working on, and I invited him to look into my stash of cross stitch, in which I had bagged projects, fabric and thread together.  He chose this one, and sent it back finished. 

And he also sent me this one!   They are already prepared, I just need to frame them.

So what I will be working on this Sunday is another Kathy Schmitz One Stitch at a Time Club embroidery.    I hope to finish this up.    I also need to prepare the last border of the Buhl-Bushong quilt.  I just had nothing else in me today to get that done.  So I have this embroidery to work on until then. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and please stay safe. 

I will be linking up with Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts when the link comes up tomorrow.  Pop by over there and see what everyone has been up to!

I love that your BIL took home some of your kits and sent them back finished! Those look like fun designs! Your Kathy Schmitz embroidery looks like the perfect project for today - hope you've had a chance to enjoy some stitching.

How fabulous to have a BIL who loves to cross stitch! Love those pretties he finished for you. You have been busy making all those masks. It seems everyone is making very needed. The pretty you will be working on today is sweet. Enjoy your slow stitching.

Thanks for sharing not only our needle work, but the photos of your mask recipients. We are certainly all in this together.
