I've been awol for the last few weeks, having been down South helping my DD over half term and having lots of fun with my grandees.
I came home just after a friend had an accident and she ended up in hospital so I've been helping her get back to independence. I stayed with her for a few days after she was allowed home and for the last few days I've been visiting day to day to help where I can. Life has been on hold for a while but stitching this patchwork has helped me through.
These are 1 1/2 inch hexagons which I first prepped then sewed by hand, mostly during my long trip to Brighton by coach.
After finishing enough of these tiny hexies to make a cushion I started on triangles. It is quite therapeutic to sit and hand stitch these beautiful tiny pieces of Liberty Tana Lawn which I've had in a drawer for possibly 30 years. They seem to be coming to life bit by bit. I purposely made them a random mix and I love the result.
I recently made this Native American Indian costume for my grandee in Germany.... she calls it an Indiana costume. All the children went to kindergarten in fancy dress last Monday and this is a tradition there every year before Shrove Tuesday.
I must send Best Wishes for a very Happy Birthday to my good friend Neet. Health and Happiness to you Neet and I hope to see you soon once you have finished all your birthday treats and trips!
