thanking Lorina

Today we marked the end of ‘Letter to Myself’, the stitching project inspired by Lorina Bulwer, by visiting her grave and leaving a stitched message of thanks.

Some of us had written personal messages on the fabric.

Such a seemingly insignificant grave for someone who has been in our thoughts a lot over the past few months. We hope our gift shows that Lorina is still remembered, and her work celebrated.

  1. Making samplers can be wonderfully therapeutic. I guess for Lorina Bulwer it was a way of coping with very difficult times.
    Nice to see the grave and feel in touch with some real tangible history now that all the tragedy of her life has gone away.
