I see this old faded sign on my new commute. For some reason, it always catches my eye.
If it were for Ginger Ale, I could understand as I've been living on that bubbly beverage!
Sick of being sick.
So no funny crackers this time around.
I've also been working on the Gathering Blanket. Slowly but surely, names are being added in a colorful display of community. We got to use it, as is - in process- at our Lunar New Year celebration last week. The parents in attendance were excited to see it coming together. As a members name gets written on the muslin cloth, I ask them to select a color for me to stitch it with. The adults tell em their choice, while the children are given three or four colors to choose from. As I hold out the a small group of thread colors, the children physically pick which one they would like. It has been most interesting to see that everyone of these under two years old children have gone straight for one particular color, with no wavering! They are very definite in their choices! At this point in time, there will be 12 children and 10 staff members included. These numbers will of course change as children and/or staff join the classroom. I've completed just 7 names so far. At the rate I sew...these children will be in college by the time I've got this first group done!!
I've also been working on a little gift. I can't really show it yet...but I can show parts!

That's all for this update. Hope my post finds you all well...healthy and enjoying doing what you do!
As for me, I'll continue to stitch, share, watch old home movies & the humming birds in my fuzzy purple bathrobe on the couch!
Here's a Ginger Ale toast..."To us!"
