I was playing around, making a little knitted star today, when I heard the sad news that Queen Elizabeth had died. She herself was a bright and shining star through 70 years of loyal service to our country. In happy times and sad times too, her humour, compassion and dignity shone through.
RIP Your Majesty. I would like to dedicate my Star to you.
