Threads of feeling

If any of you are in London for the next couple of weeks, I urge you to visit the Foundling Museum to see the Threads of Feeling exhibition- Di came to stay for the weekend before she went to the Julie Arkell (lucky thing!) course down in West Dean, and dragged me along to it......true to form Di cried all the way round the 'achingly beautiful' tokens of fabrics that had been cut from the abandoned babies' clothes and pinned to a ledger in case the mothers returned to claim their children...really amazing and unbelievably sad.....a great weekend of racing around the cloth shops, Loop and the Camden passage, and finished off on sunday by a frenzy of hand dyeing swatches of blanket that Di's sister had very kindly sourced for me from a local charity shop!
