When I realised that today is International Patchwork Day, I knew how I wanted to honour my lovely Mum on this Mother’s Day. Mum loved craft things, she sewed, knitted, crocheted and made beautiful patchwork. Here are two of her greatly treasured pieces. I also have the miniature chest of drawers where she kept all the accoutrements needed for the making and have kept the pretty templates.
Here’s love in the form of hyacinths from our Suffragette garden for Mother’s Day – to the Mother in us all and to the Mother of us all –
– and especially to my dear daughters who have dear daughters of their own.
