This post has absolutely nothing to do with sewing, or with my work.
When winter is on us, and the two old trees outside my sewing room window are denuded, I can see the workings of Kellingley Colliery through the gaps in the bare branches.
This afternoon there was a roof collapse at Kellingley - one of the last handful of deep coal mines working in the UK. According to accounts, two ment were trapped - one was rescued, although injured, and one man died.
My thoughts are with their families, friends and colleagues.
