‘For Jack, Maggie, Joachim…’

I made this to remember three people who were part of the post-war generation that helped to set up The Welfare State and were concerned with social repair.  Sadly Jack and Maggie recently passed away.

The embroidery layers three domestic cloths, a torn and faded imperfect quilt block, a linen tea towel and a dyed old blanket. I embroidered through them all and left the threaded needle.
