New Year, New Direction
Recently my frail mother has moved permanently in to a care home. All of her life she has sewn but has had to give it up recently which has distressed her. She has always done cross stitch kits and I know that I will never never have the patience to follow someone else's design and count stitches but as a sort of homage to her sewing past I have decided that 2018 will be the year that I start mixing some cross stitch pattern making in to my own textile collage style. Here is the start of that process. It's taking me a long time to do the stitching so more to come!
