Over fifty years ago my Mother and I were sitting out in the front yard and my three year old daughter and a neighbor three year old boy were playing in back of the house, suddenly they were squealing and laughing so we went to check. There was a boiler with about ten inches of water in it and they had carefully taken off their clothes and were jumping up and down in the water. Mom and I had a good laugh.
When you get it finished then post it back so we can see what you did. Cheers
You could do some hand or machine embroidery in the blocks or you could hand applique some interesting things on it or use some beads in various places. Think of it as a canvas to embillesh. I have done that and it works out great. Hopefully your machine has a good number of embroidery stitches.. Think outside the box. You could use old lace on it also. Try some of these ideas. Good luck. I am a fiber artist and I know you can do something with it.
Love the bright colors. Is it called My Happy Quilt?
My grand daughter and great grand son live iRohnert Park close to the fires. They are all right but no school and she is a school teacher. Looks terrible and such a loss for so many people.
I would get some Elastic thread and make the bottom and the sleeves tighter and leave the rest alone. I did that with an oversized sweater and am satisfied with that. I am more of a seamstress than a knitter as I just do plain stuff knitting and it is more like meditation to me.
One of my friends used to buy sewing material and put it under the mattress. Guess she knew hubby would not make the bed. Guess you could put it in a sack in the deep freeze and behind the books on the book shelves. Come on where else do you hide stuff.
Every morning I do a series of stretching and several yoga stretches. I am 90 years old and still do all my housework and most of my cooking,play bridge once in a while,knit,embroidery,tat, and sew and read books
S. Most of my friends can not get around and their minds have gone south. It may be good genes or it may be because I have been active. What a precious grand child you must have. Take his advise.
Can you frog back the other sleeve and add a contrasting color or two to both sleeves and then be able to finish both with the same color. Did that with a sweat shirt that I ran out of color and added a couple of other colors and everyone thought it was neat. This was a sewing project but you could do it with a knit. Gotta get creative sometimes and sometimes it looks better than the original. Just a thought. Good luck
We have a group at our senior center for knitting and crocheting but it has developed into answering sewing questions and some embroidery and tatting. About ten come every week and have about fifteen in all. We made over 100 hats for students at a elementary school. The best knitter is not a teacher but some of the rest of us can teach and help. We work on our own projects and start at ten and go home any time after eleven. No one is a mess and we are having a great time. Boy do we have a ton of donated yarn
I have an 20 plus year old Kitchen Aid agitator washing machine. Had a little work done on it about 5 years ago and the man said(Keep this machine as they do not make them that good anymore) I think they are made to last seven or eight years and then off to buy a new one. It is a mess out there.
We used to say SOB when we missed a spare in bowling. Should of been.
I sometimes say button down the front sweater and it is very nice.
I would say the same thing. Go to some garage sales and pick out a good used all metal older machine because the toy machines are not a good thing for a child to learn on. I found a fairly good machine for ten dollars and all it needed was to put the needle hook assembly back together and I did that and it sewed great. Look around before you give her that plastic machine made in China.
