This is a sort of 'it just happened' piece. I filled one of my needle-point bottles with gold paint and dribbled some on this piece of craft paper to try it out. Then I added the threads and the TH boy. It reminded me of a long and winding road, so I added the line underneath It's a song from the time of the 1st World War, and was written by a singer who had lost his son in the fighting:
Keep right on to the end,
Tho' the way be long, let your heart be strong,
Keep right on round the bend.
Tho' you're tired and weary still journey on,
Till you come to your happy abode,
Where all the love you've been dreaming of
Will be there at the end of the road.
