Have you ever heard of dragonflies referred to as "darning needles"?
Growing up I remember being told that's what they were. And they had the power to sew up your mouth if you were caught saying a bad word, or even if you were talking too much. Good thing I made up a batch of these the other day.
Because I may have wanted to say bad words when I caught a glimpse of our lilac bush right outside the window.
And how can I envision Spring with this addition to our flower boxes?
So for now I busy myself with some needlework of my own. A remnant of burlap that I stenciled the words "Frenchman's Bay Tea Co." for an idea I had for a pillow.
My progress so far. And I'll be using my recently found ship fabric for the back of the pillow.
This is Frenchman's Bay, taken right here in Sorrento yesterday. The "Tea Co." part is fictional, as far as I know.
Anyway, the cookies are slowly dwindling, right along with the snow.
We continue to have daily snow showers, but thankfully the ground has warmed up enough to make the snow disappear fairly quickly. And for now, no more bad words needed.
