I took a basket of mismatched fabric hexagons to the session so that we could do some patchwork and appliqué – maybe to make a patchwork quilt, using different colours and designs.

We all have different ways of looking at things.

V* collected up all the patchwork pieces she could find in one fabric design and meticulously pinned them together, carefully matching the patterns where they met at the edges, and thus re-creating the piece of fabric I had spent so much time cutting into hexagons earlier…

She was very pleased with her work – she’d fixed my mistake.
