Autumn by the tracks

Sometimes things don't go, after all,
from bad to worse. Some years, muscadel
faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don't fail.
Sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.

A people sometimes will step back from war,

elect an honest man, decide they care
enough, that they can't leave some stranger poor.
Some men become what they were born for.

Sometimes our best intentions do not go
amiss; sometimes we do as we meant to.

The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow
that seemed hard frozen; may it happen for you.

And AGAIN! with Life List No.40

So, that first apron I made?  It hasn't yet seen the light of day.  My Dr. Betty, precious, precious Dr. Betty is saving it because it's so special to her.  The second?  It has been sent to San Diego. The third, though, is the charm.  This apron, friends, is for the Neighbor System.  I knew I could count on this lovely lady to take a picture of this piece.  Feast! Your! EYES!

So there!  This is the first time I've used a pattern.  Take that Life List No. 40.  I'm learning to SEW!
