I have made a start on a cloth for Tilly.
She is buried in the garden at My Man's parents' house. It is quiet, up some steps away from the house, has a pond filled with Irises, and a glorious view of the Preseli hills, where she and I used to love going on walking adventures before she became ill over a year ago.
I love to sit up there with her when we visit. It's peaceful, and I tell her all our news. On each side of her grave there are two trees, an Ash and a Beech, and these are The Tilly Keepers.
I had been wanting to make a cloth in her honour, but was waiting for inspiration....which came during my last visit.
There is still much to do, but I'm taking it slowly, and as I work, I keep in my mind all that she brought into our home with her happy, sunshiny, loving self.
Hope the sun is shining on you ~
