Hand Work

No one in this town does stitching but many crochet. I have seen some beautiful things-table cloths and centro tavola, as they call them.

My friend Lina makes blankets. She used all her leftover bits of yarn to make this colourful work. She made hexagons and then sewed them together by hand.

She used the same pattern for this white one but made the flowers smaller. It is made of cotton.

It is a baby gift...although she is not sure which baby (sound familiar?)

She has them stored in a cupboard as she makes so many (sound familiar?)
