Spun

Spun
by Laura McGee
…with help from her mum, Elaine Kirby…(who will say she didn’t really help at all.)

Spun is for my Nana, Ethel Kirby née Baker who grew up in East London working as a machinist, lived through war working in an ammunitions factory, had three children, has six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren…so far.

I inherited her sewing box
                                               And
                                                      In
                                                         This
                                                               Box
                  (which is now both a sewing and a memory box it seems)
                                                                     I
                                                             Have
