Hi everyone. This time, I put the names on folded strips and drew one. It said Kathy. I clicked her name and found her blog called Mood Swings! How appropriate is that??? She featured the Spectacles Pocket from Primitive Traditions that I've always wanted and never remembered to purchase, and that fabulous scissor case from Barbara Bernard. Thank you all for participating once again.
After all the words and sentiments and starred and striped leaves, I decided to remove it all and change May's pear to my liking - plain. Simple. Dusty colors. May is Memorial Day to me all month long. The WWII generation has always had a place in my heart, and after bawling for two days of reading poems, I decided on bits of one by Eula Gladys Lincoln, printed on muslin, and used for the back.
It's smaller than the prior pears, completely filled with stitches, and goes really nice with my pinkeeps of similar color.
I'll list the poem, how I did the back, and the simple chart this weekend.
Do you remember my red boot story?
Once again, the township workers were driving by while I was in the driveway with these. I just came from the cemetery after removing the candle from mom's birthday. The grounds are very uneven and sopping wet, especially after yesterday's rain. Seems I always have these cracked and disgusting boots on whenever they see me, even in the summer. They already think I'm disturbed but at least I'm going down with red boots on.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thank you again for participating in the offer, and I hope Kathy will be happy with the box. And as always, thank you much for visiting!
