Back in July, Checkout Girl held an Embroidereading Contest.
On August 1, when I shared news of the contest here, I offered an original verse to anyone who wanted to participate in the contest.
Karen, owner of Arctic Needle in Anchorage, took me up on the offer. I sent her a selection of verses, and she chose Sourdough Sherri, from my incomplete and unpublished Mother Moose Alaska Nursery Rhymes collection.
We didn’t win (sure, I helped!), but it is oh-so-fun to see this verse in stitches.
Something tells me we need to do this again, putting stitched poems on bookmarks.
