I wondered what a map of memories would look like. Threadbare paths crossing, bits missing, holes, overlaps, rough and smooth – I think it would look something like this.
The edge is made from the backing folded over, so some of the stitching on the back shows on the edge as well. I like the back to show, rather than try and cover up the stitch marks and threads.
You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
