I was looking through the half-finished crosstitches and tapestries that I inherited from my mum when I came across the beginnings of a patchwork something-or-other.
When we found out that mum’s cancer had come back my aunt sent mum this kit so that she could wile away the hours of chemotherapy. Unfortunately mum got so sick so fast that she only ever completed one square.
We’ll never know what she had planned for this kit but I intend to finish it. It will be my first attempt at patchwork. I might make it into a cushion cover, with mum’s completed square at the centre, and send it to my aunt as a momento.
