Sad News of the Miners

Such sad news to hear about the four miners who lost their lives today.  Not far from where I live - what a tragic way to go.  My thoughts are with their families and friends.

I saw this poem.  I don't know who has written it otherwise I would credit them...

There's a cry in the valleys , tears in the West
Mourning the heroes that wear the pit vest
Underground grafters always put in a shift
Below the hillside in the deep dark drift
Theyre not coming home to their children their wives
... The mine once again takes cherished lives
The coalfields of Britain all unite in your mourn
We're all the same breed We're pit village born

May the heroes sleep peacefully, may the community stay strong
RIP xxxxxxxx

In crafting news today I have been very busy finishing off my batch of santa decorations and have been making lots of peg bags.  

10 weeks today until the big launch.  Starting to panic now in case I don't get everything done.

Some pretty lavender stacks I made recently.  They smell fab!


  1. I've been watching the news hoping for the best about the miners. Was so sad to hear the tragic news as, like you, its not far from us. Love your tribute to them
