Fabric at last.


This is what I've been trying to upload since sunday - must have had the gremlins as it worked ok today, there is another piece to show but didn't want to push my luck, anyway this is a lavender bag/pillow and it was lovely to work with fabric for a change, I'd hoped to do more today but we had a 2am phone call to tell us that Roy's mum had passed away peacefully in her sleep - one week after her 98th birthday - so all plans were changed, we were beginning to think that she would reach her 100th birthday but it was not to be.
