Title: My Colourful Cocoon
After googling shroud patterns, I chose this pattern because I felt it would be quite dignified to get a body into.
I have sewn my shroud out of a bright & vibrant cotton material that I have had for some time.
The buttons were made by my husband out of a wooden crab rake handle sliced into circles & holes drilled.
My shroud is my first step, and in time I hope to have an outer shell/coffin.
At this stage & as a fibre weaver my outer shell/coffin is a work in progress.
My Will is current and I have told my executor & family what my wishes are even though I feel I have plenty of time.
But guess what ………NONE OF US KNOW HOW LONG WE HAVE.
So live, love & prepare for the inevitable while being kind to all around us.
