Hullo, Children (see 328)!
Meanwhile, back to the ‘fours’. I’m still using the coloured card, I found in the bin at work, as a mount for the fabric numbers.
The green gingham was given to me by a friend some years ago, before I had my own children. It used to be her daughter’s school uniform. I made her some birthday bunting with it.
The black and white spot is the torn lining of a bag. In fact, from the very bag I took to Lewisham Hospital when I had my son thirteen years ago. Incidentally, Del , whose shirts are featured on earlier numbers, drove us to said hospital with said bag.
Drake Brookshaw comes up trumps again with some beautiful drawings. 324 is my favourite, with the king and the poor man. Mam and Jane are making cakes on 326, with Dad and John nowhere to be seen. And I often wondered why our dog, Jess, used to turn around about fifty thousand times before she finally lay down for the night, and now I know (327).
