Ella's Patchwork Blanket
Ella and I started this project back in February just before the earthquake. I thought we would have got it finished before now, but there always seemed other things calling our attention. She wanted to make one that would fit her bed. So yesterday we spent, well actually Ella spent the afternoon behind the sewing machine. My job was pinning and unpinning. Bearing in mind success breeds success I try to make it as enjoyable a process as I can to inspire Ella to want to keep going. So I did the boring bits. She surprised me with her stickability. She stayed with it until all the panels were sewn and after tea sewed on the backing. We're really pleased with it.
