mended world

 I think the cross stitch marks the place where this cloth was stitched. 
I purchased it in IKEA department store about five years ago for not very much money.  A pillow cover.  It used to be black fabric. 
I think about Three Continents by El Anetsui
 Each stitch made from metal waste.
Then I am reminded of this wedding gift from Etsy  for Grace and Asan.  Their two countries, Canada and Turkey each outlined with stitch.
