visiting an old friend...

the upside, very good upside, of not making for markets and what-nots is that i am finding old faithful friends in the abandoned piles of projects..

this piece of patchwork was started sometime last year i think and contains scraps of fabric that have been gifted to me from friends i have met though this wonder that is the internet...

friends that i value beyond measure. friendships that have slowly grown over the months. friends that i feel jolly, jolly lucky to have in my life...

so each hexie, each stitch, each moment that i sit down and work on this project i think of them..

we should all have a project like this on the go, something to grab hold of and work on when we have a bit of a wobbly day. a piece of stability that only friendship can give.

yep. a hexie swap between friends would certainly make this uncertain, often gloomy world a little brighter :)


  1. You have done quite a bit more since I last saw it, lovd all the colours.I keep trying new ventures nearly finished my knitted slippers....quite pleased with them , might put a picture of them on facebook later. Love you lots my loverly girl.xxxxx
