the Matriarch....

I have finished piecing the top for The Matriarch - my version of Elephant Abstractions by Violet Craft


I was totally obsessed doing this.... her pattern is so well written and it was like piecing according to instructions but not really knowing how it all fits together.  I struggle with seeing a picture backwards as working with foundation paper piecing feels to me....
She is going to stand guard on my design wall for a few weeks as we get to visit our real Matriarch - 92 year old Mother in law (we missed her 90th birthday due to Covid restrictions)


There are also children and grandchildren to visit.... most I haven't seen for over 5 1/2 years which is just too long and hard.

A few more Field Journal stitcheries have been done....


I will be taking a break from them for a while..... as well as a break from blogging and other social media.... I am a bit selfish with my family time


I'm sure I will get some catch up times but they will be limited so I apologise in advance for not keeping in touch....


See ya later Alligator, In a While Crocodile.... In a Swish Jelly fish...
