If you watch the movie Get Carter I was living there when it was filmed (even have a cousin playing an extra in it). It shows the darker side of my world at that time.
About the Embroidery
It has a version of a Scarlet Macaw (new world in America) feather in stitch and a crows feather (old world in England) painted with dots. The crow and macaw speak of what I needed to do as I faced the onslaught of fragmentation at home and the loss wrought by the watchful eyes of others that consumes people you love.
PHEW! heavy stuff, eh!
