Tony's Mum died this morning.
His sister Mary phoned to say that she had gone to her art class, had collapsed and the medics were not able to revive her. Yesterday she went into Bristol with Mary to buy things for her art class. She met up with Emily her granddaughter and her great granddaughter Violet. How lovely that she went so soon after that, and so peacefully.
I've decided to share some of her beautiful embroidery.
Mum was learning right up to her death - aged 88yrs. She was a fine needlewoman who enjoyed all aspects of creativity. These three pictures come from a period when she focussed on using gold in her work - thread, buttons, leather and metal.
We will all miss her very much
