When you think about it, Sepia Saturday is a bit like a quilt. Over the years, hundreds of people from around the world have come together to establish a patchwork of old images and memories. Some are very old, some less so. Some are close family, some are distant relatives. Some are brightly coloured, some are in faded sepia. Individually they are all interesting, but together they create something which is more than the sum of its individual parts. That's what I like about Sepia Saturday, it's a collaborative exercise in preserving memories. Which is nothing more than a long way of saying that our Sepia Alphabet has worked its way around to the letter Q. And Q is for quilts. And queens, and quadrangles, and quays, and quintuplets .... and almost anything else you want it to be for. Just find an old image, add a new explanation and post your post on or around Saturday 5th December 2020.
And whilst you are waiting in the queue, you might want to look at the two remaining prompts for this year. As always, there will be a break over the Christmas and New Year period but we will be back for T in the new year.
