Thank you all so very much for your kind comments on my last post - more comments than ever before on that one! I have been away over the weekend so just a quick post to let you know I am still here and I hope to catch up with all your posts later and maybe leave a comment or two!
This is a pile of scraps my patchwork teacher gave me a week or so back when I showed her some of my crazy patchwork. They were not very wide but sufficient for my needs.
Stitched to the backing and embroidered ready for making up.
The spider is apparently a traditional addition and brings good luck - as long as you aren't an arachnophobic!
