Ursula reviews an embroidered cushion from Bangladesh

Ursula admires this beautiful hand-embroidered cushion from Bangladesh. But she thinks I should mend it. One whole side has come apart (see the white corner at the top?), which removes all satisfaction from clawing a cushion cover. Also she has never forgiven me for going to Bangladesh without taking her. She doesn’t say this, but you can see it in her eyes, right? Poised but distant.
