bibs bonnets bartering & shamus

Just a Little Hankie ‘

I am just a little hankie, As square as can be; But with a stitch or two, They’ve made a bonnet out of me. I’ll be worn home from the hospital, and on special days, and then I’ll be carefully pressed and neatly packed away. Then on the wedding, I have been told, every well dressed Bride must have something old. So what would be more fitting than to find Little Old Me, A few stitches snipped and a wedding handkerchief I will be! And if per chance, it is a boy, someday he still will wed. So to his Bride he can present the handkerchief once worn upon his head’

Made 3 girl bonnets and one boy bonnet…

Pile of goodies I’m bartering with a scarf maker for an eye burning winter scarf…hey, till I can walk in the garden without sinking to my knees winter isn’t over yet… 🙂
