Sometimes you just have to do something mindless! No concept at all, just cut the squares and sew them together and hand over the finished piece to the grateful recipient.
I’ve always liked the idea of recycling, and there is a horrible waste in my normal production methods which involve dyeing or screen printing yards of fabric most of which is discarded in the compositional process. So for once I’ve used old, reclaimed, much loved and worn fabric wrenched from the arms and overflowing closets of the previous owner! Plus, I must admit, a little polartec for warmth – that stuff sews so nicely I might just switch to using it for all future work! Ah to hide my sins in brightly colored synthetic fluff!
And below, the critical acclaim is exceeding positive! Would that it were always so!

If you have been, thanks for reading!!! Elizabeth
