Clare I have taken up another hobby! I have never attempted patchwork before but have been inspired and encouraged by Clare's enthusiasm, tutorials and wonderful patchwork that she produces.
I was supposed to be doing housework but got distracted making my first lot of hexagons. Fabric hexagons are wrapped around papers and tacked together. The next fun bit will be sewing the shapes together. I can see this becoming an addiction!
Thank you for all the comments regarding the moon in my last post. Today in the Northern hemisphere the moon is waning and ascending. According to a guide that I have, if you are going to be planting onions or shallots, it is best to plant them when the moon is descending on the 20 - 22nd March in the morning. March is the last chance to prune apple trees, when the moon is descending from 13-24th March. I have taken this information from a book called 'in tune with the moon 2011'. I have no idea if the advice works but if you haven't had much success in growing things maybe it is worth giving it a try!
