Nice to meet pew
A felted woollen brooch from my local gallery shop, Art in the Heart, Peterborough, which is made by Eve Marshall. I thought it was adorable. But that has nothing to do with the title of my post.
Today, I popped in to see my parents to cadge a cup of tea. Mum wasn't there, she was at the local church which is selling off a number of wooden pews, and she'd gone to have a look at them. So of course I went to have a look,too. And of course, I bought one. It is only a small one. It was very reasonably priced. I don't have anywhere to put it. I will find somewhere to put it.
I don't have the pew yet, it will take a while to arrange transport, but I'll post some pictures when I have got it home.
My reasoning was that it was part of the church in the village where I was born and brought up for 18 years. A little piece of my history, if you like.
My parents have also purchased a pew. It is obviously in the genes...
