I just loved this! I was a teenager when it came out and loved the soaring sounds. And your interpretation is just wonderful. Rumpled linen and tired suits of armour in a quilt. I did not know there was a story behind the title-that’s the internet for you!
A lovely piece Ruth. I am really enjoying this Song Title Series! Beautifully stitched and it really does evoke a sunset on the Thames. I especially like the printing, though I do not know how that is done. It complements the work beautifully.

What a wonderful piece of work! I am completely humbled by this. I particularly like the detail you give us on the preparation-it is all too easy to stand in front of a detailed piece of work and say flippantly, “I don’t like it!,” with no thought about what you are really seeing. So, thank you.
