This old work shirt has absorbed a lot of sweat (and odd bits of blood) over the recent years whilst I laboured at converting an old granite farmhouse and barn/shed on the outskirts of Helston. It provided a home for my growing family for a couple of decades before the children (and now 6 grandchildren) moved away - but I'm glad to say not too far as they now visit us regularly in our new smaller terraced house in Hayle. I selected the patch for the diamond as it reminded me of the fabric used for/by prisoners in the concentration camps during the 2nd World War. This is particularly important to me as in my "former life" I had the honour to teach/work with the Traveller community in England - many gypsies died in the Holocaust and this will remind me of that.
