This evening I finished sewing together the friendship star to form part of a child’s quilt that a group of us are making. I’m really happy with it as it’s only a teeny bit wonky, and i realise that wonkiness is less noticeable with bigger patches. Also pleased, given that it’s only the second piece of patchwork I’ve sewn and I did it all by hand. I’m happy with my stitches too.
What I’m not so happy with is my husband pointing at me and exclaiming “you’re ironing!” as I was pressing the seams. In fairness, he’s never seen me do it before!
Whilst in hobby craft this afternoon I bought some 100% cotton yarn in order to make an octopus toy to give to a hospital for a premature baby. I’m always a fan of variegated wools, and i hope this makes the octopus look cool!
