I had intended to complete the patchwork aspect of the banner today but I did my calculations wrong and ended up cutting some of the pieces too small. This means that I need to visit IKEA and get some more fabric. It’s not a costly or time consuming error but it is an annoying one. Anyway, once I’d cut everything out and realised my mistake I decided to set to work on the piece that celebrates the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. The piece looks better in real life but I’m happy as long as you can tell what it is – what do you think?
