"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

January completed projects.

This cushion is for a cat lover friend (one of many!). It was supposed to be a Xmas gift but I didn't finish it in time, so I gave A. a small token gift at Xmas with the promise of something better to come.

The wife of a friend of Ken's was telling me about her autistic grandson, who tears the pages of ordinary books as he looks at them. I suggested she buy him one of those children's cloth books (does anyone else remember those as a kid?) and she said she'd never seen them. So I made one, using scraps of colourful fabric that hopefully will appeal to a small boy. I had no pattern to go from, so I just cut the pieces all the same size, joined them with a strip of calico, and sewed them back to back to make pages. Sewed down the middle strips of calico, and that was it!
