Another day, another draw! Opening this draw revealed 2 cloths.

One is a doll’s coverlet I made when I was 7 – I made it open one end, like a mix of quilt and sleeping bag. I do recall deciding on the patterns of stitches and the design and the colour. An early memory of stitching. I remember being excited about wanting freedom to decide for myself what design it would have: that is a vivid memory!

The second is my response – my capturing these fragments of memory, reaching out gently to pin them, some fading, some glimmering, some caught in the texture of thread
