I thought I hadn’t done that much sewing in March, but actually I did…
Lots of bee blocks (including two remakes as some went missing in the post in Australia), a birthday cushion for my friend,Andrea, (her quilt is still a work in progress), a baby quilt for little Freya and I pieced together our Kinky Bee quilt top for Siblings Together.
Lots of my lovely fellow Kinky Bee friends also helped me make this lovely quilt top in December 2012 for my aunt and my cousins in Ireland.
My uncle was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late October and the doctors had given him six months to live. He died yesterday morning. At only 46, he leaves a wife, five children and a one year old grandson behind.
My parents left to go to Ireland this morning, and the quilt still isn’t finished and I feel bad about that. I would have liked them to be able to take it, but there’s nothing I can do about that now. My next job is to start quilting it this week. Hopefully it will provide some small comfort now he has gone.
