I am the family wardrobe, best & worst
Of all our generations, from the first:
Grandpa's Sunday-go-to-meetin' coat,
And the woolen muffler he wore at his throat;
That came from Fayal;
Ma's wedding gown,
Three times turned and once let down,
Which once was plum, but has now turned brown;
Pa's red flannels, that made him itch;
Pants & shirts;
Petticoats & skirts;
From one or another, but I can't tell which,
Because, you see,
If you scuff on me,
You scratch the bark of the family tree."
With thy needle & thread,
A beautiful rug with beautiful meaning! I love the design and all the color.
The design in your blog header is wonderful! Is it one of yours? I'm sorry, but I don't recognize it.
