Things I can’t do

A button fell off my favourite top the other day, reminding me I can’t sew.

I felt utterly desolate for a while. And then I realised I had other tops.

And that maybe it was time I learnt to sew anyway.

    My gran could sew, she made me a patchwork quilt ten years ago which, of the few things I own, is the only thing of any importance.

    She stitched my name into a corner on the underside. It’s all I have left of her, with the exception of a few photos, and my memories.
