We had a heat wave here this week, so I was only doing hand stitching since it was too hot to sit at the sewing machine. The only comfortable place was in the back yard in the evenings, so until the mosquitoes made me their evening snack, I enjoyed some hand stitching time.
|"Rainbow Stars" quilt was auctioned for $1,650!|
One of my happy moments this week was watching the online quilt auction for the Mennonite Relief Sale. I have attended this fundraiser for at least 15 years, and was so sad that since COVID rules prohibit any public gatherings, it needed to be an online event this year. They managed to host a great online event and raised a lot of money for their international charity work. I stitched my way through the event, trying not to miss the real in person event, the strawberry pies, the tea balls meeting my quilting friends, etc.
And since my goal is to make Slow Sunday Stitching posts encouraging and positive, I wanted to share with you a gift I received this week. I have made a lot of masks over the past couple of months, including masks for any of my kids' friends that wanted them.
Tuesday night I found this on the porch... a lovely thank you card and homemade brownies!
The card says...
"Making the world a nicer place, one mask at a time"!
I must say that made me a little weepy.
Okay now it's your turn.
