Don’t worry, I haven’t disappeared completely, it’s just a really busy time of the year.
We have been away for a couple of days celebrating my mum’s 80th birthday. She was taken ill on her birthday last year and since then has been diagnosed with two very serious illnesses and lost my dad. Now that she’s recovering somewhat, it seemed like a good time to celebrate and so we did. Let’s hope the coming year is less sad and stressful than the last one.
In the mean time, I’m still busily making things: all the hexagons are edged and ready to be passed on to others in my craft group for sewing together into a blanket; I’ve even worked out how to use all of them up (there are 46) in a blanket that’s a sensible shape:
And I’m back at work on edging the masterpiece. I’ve now done five complete rounds and I plan to do one more in blueberry, one in black and then the final wavy edge… unless I change my mind!!
At the end of the week I’m going back to Karuna to teach my annual introduction to permaculture course, so I will have to find something small to make whilst I’m away… socks? string bag? granny squares? a dish cloth? Who knows?
If you don’t hear much from me over the next few days, don’t worry, I will be back for sure on Monday 28 July… I know this because I’m already working on the post!
