In days gone by all of our gifts would have been hand made. With love in every stitch and a few thoughtful gifts to our nearest and dearest. Nowadays it’s consumerism gone mad and buying gifts for your dog, your cat and someone you work with that you don’t even really know. There’s something meditative about hand stitching, it’s slow and there is nothing for it but to just lose yourself in the moment. I’ve been working on this quilt for months, it’s made with shirting fabric and if you swipe you’ll see there’s an old woollen scratchy blanket in the sandwich. It will be lovely and cosy when into finished.
