Embroidery from the train
Taking out the Christmas wrapping paper box discover a forgotten piece of embroidery packed away by accident. Dating from the summer when I had an obsession with embroidering words on fabric - a way of whiling away the hours up and down to Cornwall on the train.
Think the small words work well - have done some pillowcases as Christmas presents with much larger patterns (and not lines from Dante's Inferno! but more cheerful thoughts...)
But small seems best in this context.
