This morning was taken up with helping Margaret cut out the quilt for her grandbaby, who is due a few weeks after MY granddaughter. She has started sewing the pieces together, and, as I am not really a "follow the rules" type of quilter, it has been a rather slow process. I am usually inventing things as I go, so the tops come together really fast and then everything starts slowing down as I start embroidering and embellishing etc. However, we are following a pattern and it will look beautiful and bright.
She happened to mention that she had seen the Hungry Caterpillar fabric in our local patchwork shop (yes, we even have one here in the village!) and so I popped in to see it when I was in the village. It is SO cute! We had the book when at least one of my children was small and it was such a great favourite. I am sure the next generation will love it just as much.
So the planning is under way. For Christmas. The making is an entirely different story. I need to get moving. I have a list. I have some ideas. I am great on ideas. Speed is a slight problem, and so is standing too long. However, we will make a plan.
Creativity is slowly beginning to re-emerge around here. Now to fit it in around the physio, exercises, doctor's appointments etc. I am a woman. I can multi-task.....
