It's funny but it had not occured to me to do anything with this air mail letter ....not until the lovely 'mimilove forever' in the previous comments said that she "would look forward to seeing what I do with it". The light bulb lit and several hours later, here we are.
I have copied the 'goose bump' part of the letter onto linen, collaged and embroidered, you know, my usual thing......I did add some very special antique tatting. I adore this tatting it is so exquiste and I nearly did'nt add it (wanted to keep it) but I thought it really added to the piece. I have also had a french knot fest with this. The very pretty crepe de chine is 1940's.
I don't really know how to finish this post off....It's a very emotional subject, but all I hope for is that long ago an ordinary, every day fella got back to his lovely wife, safe and sound.
Thank you to everyone for stopping by and your wonderful comments. x
