I haven't done any patchwork since home economics classes at school a very long time ago!! I think I made a cushion then too - 6 very large squares cobbled together into a rectangle.
Not too bad for my first attempt at patchwork in 30+ years!!! I'll add some buttonholes too if I can find any snazzy hot pink buttons!! I'm sure the recipient would like that.
The sewing machine is back from being repaired and seems as good as new. Luckily no spare parts were required (in which case I'd have had to have lived with the fact that my machine only sewed straight or zig zag lines for the rest of its life, as you can't get Riccar parts anymore!) and it seems it just got well and truly shaken up somewhere en route from Canada. I can now do machine embroidery if I ever feel the urge to ... not that it has so far, but it's nice to know that I could do it, if I wanted!!
