Let's get sketchy



Now for a quick layout for Lets get sketchy.

VINTAGE
My grandfather was a builder by trade but during World War 2 was given an important job of Warden for the local area.
This meant he was responsible for making sure houses had blackout paper on all the windows, showing no light. If there was an air raid or bombs found he was trained to use a gas mask and rescue the people affected. He also hung posters at railway stations etc to warn people to be aware.
At the Australian War Memorial in Canberra I saw plaque which made me realise I needed to document this story.
I've used stitching across the triangles plus 2 buttons from the era.
