A Loving Kiss

Last week I taught a workshop in a local art gallery where I based the session on my small collection of First World War embroidered postcards. I believe they were embroidered on to muslin by women and girls in France and Belgium and bought by soldiers to send home to loved ones. There are loads of images on the internet but it is nice to be able to handle something with so much historical and emotional resonance.
