An Historic Day for Leicester

It was raining when we got up. Thoughts turned to the to processions that were to take place this morning prior to the re-interment of Richard III. It did clear and we took the chance to put the stuff in the car for the quilting group this afternoon.

We sat and watched the TV, the service was quite short, the most poignant moment seeing the coffin lowered into the prepared grave and the ropes being thrown in on top of it.

There has been a lot written about the actions over the last few days. That matters little, what does matter is that King Richards remains have been re-interred with due reverence just a few yards away from his original resting place.

The quilting group went well this afternoon, one or two of the ladies managed to finish their pot holders and they have all decided on the blocks to do for their sampler quilt, now I have to get all the paperwork sorted and printed.

Very tired tonight, should sleep well.
