A Lot of Sadness here right now burying myself in Posh Frock ideas....

Sad times for lots this week, l've buried myself in wool and hook and worked on Posh Frock ideas...really not sure about all flowers or one colour?
Pastels might be an option, loved the silk yarn but didn't like it after washing, it went a bit flat so back to the drawing board....
Dug out the Colourmart 100% Merino in lots of pale colours and that washes brilliantly and looks very like cotton what do you think?...
circles, squares, same all over, or mix the colour, lots of colours, or 2 colours...l'll get there soon l hope!
looks quite good as an all over piece less fussy on me may be?...

Like most people l've been watching the tragic happenings in Japan my heart goes out to all caught up in this total disaster so so sad

Also the latest soldier to be killed from the Irish Guards we know 
so very very sad, Carly and Stephen lost their baby daughter of 7 days less than a year ago and now Carly has lost her beloved Hero too
can't tell you how sad we have been in the last few days
RIP STEPHEN you will be Sadly missed

A Soldier

There is discipline in A Soldier
you can see it when he walks, 
There is honor in A Soldier
you hear it when he talks.
There is courage in A Soldier
you can see it in his eyes, 
There is loyalty in A Soldier
that he will not compromise.
There is something in A Soldier
that makes him stand apart, 
There is strength in A Soldier 
that beats from his heart.
A Soldier isn't a title any man 
can be hired to do, 
A Soldier is the soul of that man
buried deep inside of you.
A Soldier's job isn't finished after
an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week, 
A Soldier is always A Soldier
even while he sleeps.
A Soldier serves his country first
and his life is left behind, 
A Soldier has to sacrifice what 
comes first in a civilian's mind.
If you are civilian -
I am saying this to you.....
next time you see A Soldier
remember what they do.
A Soldier is the reason our land
is 'Home of the free', 
A Soldier is the one that is brave 
protecting you and me.
If you are A Soldier -
I am saying this to you.....
Thank God for what YOU do!
