Rediscovering a 22 year old project.
This little piece of patchwork has been sitting at my parent's house - in their "abandoned crafts" cupboard - since I was 10. I remember Mum teaching me how to cut the paper hexagons out of her old magazines, and cutting the fabrics from old dresses, shirts, baby blankets, and other scraps of fabric. I started when I was 6 - meaning that this patchwork is now 22 years old. About time it was completed, I think! I have a large pile of perfect hexagon-sized bits of fabric - and intend to make a quilt for our spare room bed.
Hopefully it doesn't take me another 22 years to finish it.
