My mother gave me a quilt to finish, that she began many years ago. It is almost as old as me, so it has been lying in her craft-drawers for many years.. There was also a pillow, that I had actually been stiching together a few years later. Not good notes to the 7-year old me for her end-stichings, though.. I should hopefully be better at that now.
I finished both, even though it was very strange sewing by hand again. And I did try some of the online tutorials on how to do it on the machine, but it did not work out that well for me. Not at all. So I did it the slow and cozy sitting-in-the-sofa-legs-up-way.
And now Jolina loves it. And she snuggles up on the floor with her favourite things – that will be Fireman Sam and her scooter, close to her.
I love that it is so colourful, so mis-matched, and that it so reminds me of my mother´s craft-drawers.
