Ode to mothers who wake at 3.00am and worry 'til dawn
A4 mini-quilt - a challenge exercise - a response to a postcard of a rocky coastline.
As my 14 year old daughter prepares to go to sea for the first time (on a tall ship), I cannot help but think of the drowned sailors, their mothers at home, and all mothers who must let their young ones go. Just have to have a cup of tea and watch the next dawn. The triangular/square background is part of the traditional 'storm at sea' block.
