We will remember them................


Today is a special day to remember all of the fallen in the world wars and recent conflicts too.
I thought it would be a nice idea to make something special to remember all those who sacrificed their lives so that we could be free today.
I started to design this mini quilt, it is a work in progress, I am going to add more red petals sprinkled around the design to complete it.

Whilst I was stitching this I was watching a World War 1 drama on the tv, two young men were in the trenches having a conversation....

"A hundred years from now we will be ancient history" this brought a tear to my eye which dropped onto the fabric, it was such a poignant moment, of course we have not forgotten their sacrifice and we all still remember what they did for us. 

We are free to smell the flowers because of them.
