Washi paper quilting.
I made these yesterday. They are so quick and easy to do, and are a relaxing change from working with textiles. As much as I love patchwork and embroidery, it is hard on my hands these days, so I find myself sewing for short periods of time, then turning to something less tiring on my fingers.
Ken's health is starting to improve, finally. He rode his Honda into the CBD on Thursday, to have his hair cut. (He has been going to the same barber for about 40 years, and refuses to find anyone closer to home). It was the same day I was in town with Doreen from Canberra, and we were all lucky with the weather, as it was fine and sunny. On Friday we had wind and rain, and Ken would not have gone into town in those conditions. It was the first time he'd been anywhere on his motorcycle since early March, so he was a bit unsure of himself, but he got there and back without incident, so it boosted his self confidence somewhat. Driving a car is one thing, but riding a bike takes more physical endurance, and he'd been told not to do it until his ribs had completely healed. There was only one way to find out, and he did! So that is one big hurdle overcome.
