There hasn’t been much in the way of crafting, or patchwork in the past month, with the building work going on, but I have a few items to share.
I’ve sent a uniform cushion off to a its new home today. The new school year is only a few weeks in, but primary school already seems a world away. I hope it brings comforting memories to its recipient.
The poppy was a birthday card for a friend, and her gift is one of the ceramic poppies currently on display at the Tower of London. If you haven’t seen this tribute to the fallen of our wars, I highly recommend looking it up online. There are 880,000 ceramic poppies, one for each soldier that lost his life. Its incredibly moving and to further support the families of those that have given their lives, the poppies are available to buy once the installation is taken down in November.
The building work is continuing here and I am in a constant state of alert regarding fixtures and fittings. As for my former studio, it is doing great service as a little tea room for our builders.
Bye for now – I promise not to leave it a month next time!
