I'll Skin You Alive

This is what Pop used to say if you were really really naughty; and you just knew he meant it because Pop hardly ever said anything.
This is the Pop of the Nan and Pop that I made the cushion for at Christmas time. He's gone now. He went this afternoon. He was 88 and has suffered a great many ailments over the years.
He was a real gentleman, British born. A family member to be truly proud of.
Miss you Pop.
Always, Bec xxx
