One day last sum­mer, I found my 24-year-old grand­daugh­ter re­lax­ing in the gar­den on a rug I made when she was a baby. Re­mem­ber­ing the ‘Patch­work Spread’ pat­tern in the July/ Au­gust 2016 is­sue of Land­Scape, I thought it was time to make her a new one. I col­lected a num­ber of pairs of old jeans from the fam­ily, which had some nat­u­ral worn crease marks in an in­ter­est­ing pat­tern. This re­minded me of the ef­fects cre­ated by tie-dye­ing, so I de­cided to ex­per­i­ment on a cush­ion to ac­com­pany the rug. Af­ter sev­eral at­tempts, I com­pleted the project. Now Chloë can re­lax on her new pic­nic rug and cush­ion thanks to Land­Scape and a lit­tle help from me. Deirdre Whit­worth, via email
