My Beautiful Pyramid Patchwork

I love working with triangles although they can be tricky to sew. I love the detail, the way the eye follows the patterns to make larger triangles within triangles. I made this one last year. Around 300 triangles to make this small patchwork ,which measures about 1 metre square. It is sewn on my old singer sewing machine .

Hello dear Milly,
So you have a Singer as well. My heavy, "portable" Singer was one of the very first, Major, purchases made when I moved to New York in 1967. Can you believe that it still runs, when I can drag it out from its hallowed spot in my closet.
That Singer created my clothes for decades, and even now, at the shop, I think that I am not a bad seamstress.
I did my sewing and my knitting because I could not "afford my taste" in shops. Nowadays, it seems that sewing and knitting have become some sort of bijoux relaxation techniques.
The more I think about that, the older I will feel.
So my thought will cease.
Days off are only a few days away. Camera, perhaps. I know that I could turn to you to learn how to photograph my old paintings, drawings, prints.
But now, as I finish a rushed supper, I had better get onto the phone and wishe my mom (a very complicated relation there) our US version of Happy Mother's Day.
Best wishes to you and all your family.
