Islands & spring flowers

On Wednesday, I was working with the brilliant Chris Hammacott at Bethesda, which is where a lady was staying on respite. 

This is part of Alzheimer Scotland’s community outreach extension of our original Quilter in Residence project with Chris to support people living at home.

We had a wonderful afternoon chatting with a lady who has led an incredible life shaped and inspired by the sea and several islands including Iona and St. Kilda.

A cushion will come from this session shortly and I can’t wait to see how that looks!

On the way out, I spotted a familiar face from community sessions and although I was dashing to a meeting, I asked if I could come back and I returned yesterday with some spring flowers. We spent a lovely hour arranging them and chatting, while snow and hail battered the windows.
