The Bard is going to tell a rhyme,
Of some happy, carefree stitching time!
13 ladies (& Niju) met in the park,
With thread on fabric to leave a mark.
On the bandstand we all happily sat;
surrounded by coloured thread (& scissors & cloth) on a mat!
The needles they went up & down;
as stories were shared all around.
There were peaceful moments & quiet spaces
…& attention was seen rapt on our faces.
A comfortable camaraderie had developed;
as in our stitching world we were enveloped.
The sun settled down to a comfortable glow,
& a cool, pleasant breeze began to blow
Then time to wrap up, so finishing knots,
as we got ready to leave; next Wednesday already in our thoughts.
Our stitching project is coming together, bit by bit;
We’d love if you’d come and be a part of it!
The Bard, she’ll leave you with a quote,
that once, upon her book she wrote:
‘I cannot count my day complete,
’til needle, thread & fabric meet.’
