My dad was too young be a war veteran but I have photos, somewhere in my many moving boxes & bins, of him working at the Malton plant, helping with building the Lancaster Bombers. My grandfather also worked there. Next year I'll share those photos.
Oh, Those Hexi's!
I have worked this piece into an odd shaped small runner.
It is from leftover fabric from a quilt that Deb & I did together a few years back called Crazy Stars.
My girlfriend Cynthia was always working hexi's & I thought I'd give it a try... oh, my!
It is not an easy undertaking but I did find it relaxing to hand stitch.
I now get the chance to use my hand turned knitting bowl made by Gary Miller & was presented to me for Christmas a couple of years ago from my Thursday sewing girlfriends, Bev, Lynn, & Deb.
It's being put to good use & I love it!!
This knitted piece is for the cement goose Lucy's neck. It will cover the camouflage duck tape, LOL duck tape on a goose! Lucy fell or should I say, 'was tripped by my garden hose' & her neck broke, exposing the metal rod going through her neck! The duck tape worked & I just cover it with a scarf or a knitted dickie.
Have a great day & remember a moment of silence at 11am for those that are no longer with us & the reason why. Lest We Forget.
Thank you for the visit & I hope your November is a safe & healthy one. We are the blessed ones!
