After such a long break, it’s hard to know where to begin so I’ll start where I left off. Our November 1st quarterly reveal challenge for the Endeavourers Group was Boustrophedon. I struggled with deciding what to make and eventually came up with this. My fellow endeavourers, as always, made wonderful quilts, which you can see here.
Also, around the beginning of November I finished a toddler cardigan, which really should have been a Wool on Sundays post.
Then my Dad went to hospital. He expected to go home the same night but they kept him in to do some tests whilst they gave antibiotics for a suspected chest infection. Very sadly and entirely unexpectedly he turned out to have a very aggressive ‘High-Grade B-Cell Lymphoma’ and passed away two weeks later before the diagnosis was confirmed. He really was the most encouraging and inspirational person I have ever known and, when some time time has passed perhaps I will make a post about him…
After that, the year continued to spiral downwards. My youngest son’s partner lost two grandparents, my younger daughter’s partner’s grandad died, everyone was ill…
We had a subdued Christmas and New Year and, off and on, I worked on a second cardigan for my first Granddaughter, which I finally finished a week or so ago.
Now, I have organised the Makery (which was temporarily being a spare bedroom) and I am, somewhat belatedly, about ready to embark on 2023 and looking forward to catching up with blogland and my fellow makers.
I hope the holiday season treated you well and I wish you a very happy and productive year :)
