I hadn't meant to blog this morning. I logged on to look at my much neglected blog reader and realised I would rather write a post.
I have neglected this space and it distresses me so. I wish I had the time to dedicate more to it... perhaps this will change in time.
Anyhow, want to see what I finished? I'm not sure I even told you I had started it, but I made a quilt for Mil. It's blue, it's a simple nine-patch, it is quilted in a very simple way, and actually I am really pleased with it.
And the best thing is that Mil likes it. This is remarkable as he has an inherent dislike of all that is new. But as I put it on his bed and started to take some photographs, he came upstairs and immediately got into bed and closed his eyes for a moment, then got back out and took great care in straightening it back out again.
Last night after bedtime he came back downstairs and said 'I really love my quilt mum, thank you for making it for me'. I don't doubt for a moment that he knew how much that meant to me.
