My stitching rotation is going to be put aside for a while - I've picked up a commission to stitch a wedding piece that has to be done by the end of October. It's a Chinese couple in traditional costume with language characters in the background. I think it's a decent time frame, but it will require stitching every day. It's not being done on red though but white - 14 count Aida.
Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo.
Shovel them under and let me work --
And pile them high at Gettysburg
And pile them high at Ypres and Verdun.
Shovel them under and let me work.
Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor:
What place is this?
Where are we now?
I am the grass.
Let me work.
