Delightful Surprise


Mary (Making Scrap Quilts from Stash) is in the process of packing her Minnesota household and organizing boxes to be moved to two separate houses so she and her husband can be closer to help their parents. Mary contacted me about a month ago and asked if I could use some yarn for my charity knitting.

I accepted Mary's offer with the condition that anything I could not use would be passed on to another group. Last week, two large boxes of yarn arrived at my door. Mary's generosity took my breath away.

Yarn given to the Methodist Church
Prayer Shawl Ministry program
The contents was sorted and as promised, the yarn I could not use was bundled and taken to the local Methodist Church for their prayer shawl ministry. In addition to yarn, Mary included beautiful crocheted blocks (see in the top right of the bag).

Mary sent a wide section of colors Caron Simply Soft that I'll use to make baby blankets for the Oddball project. I need to select some stitch patterns and get my needles clicking.

Thank you, Mary for your generous contribution to my charity knitting and to the prayer shawl ministry at the Methodist Church.

  2. The was generous of Mary and she chose a good person to send it to because you were willing and able to share the wealth. I've been following her blog for a few years and have even sent her a couple of Heartstrings tops. I hope their move goes smoothly. She is certainly well organized.

  14. Beautiful. I did not touch my mother's stash; in fact, I was told at her memorial service that some of it belonged to their charitable group anyway. I merely gave them permission to take it all. Now, I need to figure out what to do with my half of Rosanne's luxurious stash...
