Wow it's done! My Nan's birthday gift is finished and it looks fab. It has taken a month to do. It's all hand stitched. I have enjoyed every minute of making this. I will be very sad to give it away. But I can't wait to give it to my Nan. Like all the things I make it gives me a glow inside to think they will be very much loved in their new home.
I had to stitch 35 patches.
But as for this lady I did one pattern over two of the patches
To say at first I thought I had taken on too much would be an understatement.
But as I started and when on I was thinking maybe I didn't have enough patches for all the things I wanted to put on it. I kind of stitched itself really. There are a lot of patches but I had so many ideas of what to put in them. A lot of what I liked didn't get to go on.
My Nan loves animals. But most of all cats, so I did get this cat on and he looks fab with the tie dyed cotton.
I love sunflowers so this one is a little part of me.
I like this one its a mini patch work .
After all the work I have put in to this I will miss it. But Nan will love it and keep it for ever.
