Yes...a sigh, a long sigh, a sad sigh...London. I will mention it later but first, this is an embroidery blog. Embroidery is calming, peaceful. Perhaps there should be more of it..spread the love so to speak. I had plans for the small patchwork piece that I showed you last time. I had intended to border it with paperwork...it doesn't want to work, or at least it doesn't feel right to me. I have a box of 'stuff' a large white box. It's where I keep things from the shop until they leave me. This morning I tried my tiny piece of paperwork next to some pieces from the big white box and it hit me..my next direction. I would like to make good progress with this so that I can take it on Sunday. I know I have lots of work to take but making a 'special' piece seems appropriate.
and then there is London....I don't have to say much. I know that you know how I feel, how I'm sure we all feel. I think we should concentrate on the good in youth, the good young people who have a conscience and a sense of right and wrong. This morning my daughters partner, a teacher on his summer break, was in Clapham assisting with the clean up along with numerous other young adults, shocked an appalled at what has happened. I say Richard you are a star, the people with you are stars. It's you we should keep in mind, not the others.
