Here is Maddy's patchwork that I finally finished this week. I love this blanket. I don't know if it's because I've made it for my youngest daughter who's leaving for university tomorrow or just love the colours. I've made it out of all my scraps of fabrics, so they each have a memory for me. I only wish I'd saved some of Maddy's clothes from when she was little, but that would just have made me weep buckets into the blanket as I was making it.
There's something about the leaving of your youngest child, even though you know they're going to come back and she's only in south London, so not exactly a million miles away. But university seems a bit of a right of passage these days and she thinks she's leaving home - which makes me sad.
