Sentimental Journey

My SIL and I went through some of my MIL's sewing room stash today. In case you are new to my blog, my MIL passed away in December. She had begun a cathedral windows quilt for my DH. It looks as though she had cut out all the pieces at one time. It is completely hand stitched. I'll post a photo of it in the next day or two. We ran across so many projects she had begun over the years. It was such a treat to see some of her crafting and sewing projects. She loved crazy quilts, sunbonnet sue, and Victorian designs.

DS/7 was sick this weekend with a cold. I did, however, manage to add 2 more rows to his I-Spy quilt. I didn't get to do any cross stitching, though. Hopefully, I'll get a few stitches in during the next few days.

Your MIL is lucky to have had you for a daughter-in-law, not everyone would appreciate her crafts and give them the attention they deserve. I hope you will be able to finish the quilt she started for your DH.

Hope your DS is feeling better...mine has a cold now too and we're not having much fun!

I found you through Taneya's weblog. I'm also in Memphis, so I thought I would drop by! Sorry to hear about your MIL. It's great that you can appreciate her work, though. You'll always be able to keep part of her around that way!
