Gentle Friends, yesterday the mail came, an event around here as over the past couple of weeks it's been hit or miss at best.... mostly miss as we went three days with no mail delivery....back on track ... and brought something fun that I wasn't expecting...
... the box for a new project celebrating the 400th Anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower. Or more specifically the Women of the mayflower. The SAL is to start on September 6th and now I've got my 40ct linen my floss and needle. In the box of goodies was a really cute little Pilgrim lady needle anchor, and an additional 1621 Thanksgiving project some good info from William Bradford. This is going to be just a really fun piece to work on this Fall!! Thank you so much, Brenda!!!!!
I got very excited when I first read about this project back a few months ago. As I can trace on my Mothers side back to two of the women on the Mayflower. Mary Brewster (Here's a little tidbit about Mary... she was one of only five adult women to survive that first winter in the New World, and one of only four to survive the "first Thanksgiving" in 1621, which she helped to cook) and her daughter Fear Brewster Allerton, second wife of Issac Brewster, they married in 1627, his first wife, Mary Norris Allerton, dying that first winter in February of 1621. It'll be so nice to stitch up something that's kinda personal to my family.
There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by... the smoke here in the City from all the fires around us both north into Marin County and south towards Monterey are a bit less today. Stay Safe!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
