After almost 7 years, my blog theme was very out-of-date, and the same theme was no longer available. My son spent hours transferring my blog to a new theme, and now I have been revisiting all my older posts to tweak the images where the formatting changed a bit. The categories on the sidebar will be going away, replaced by the new category listings across the top. Hopefully, I’ll be adding links to my Facebook and Instagram, and one of these days I’ll stitch a new header. It’s a work in progress, but I’d love to hear what you think, and if you’re experiencing any problems
Anyway, that’s my excuse for being behind on my stitching. No completed blocks today, but I’ve cleaned up two blocks this week to sort of make up.
Mother Goose Quiltie Pattern #10
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
Big heads are not always full of brains. Stupid old Humpty Dumpty surely wasn’t. He didn’t have enough sense to keep from tumbling off the wall and spilling over everything. We are glad he did not spatter on our Quiltie. If any egg ever gets on this, it will be some morning when you don’t feel like getting up and mother has to bring your breakfast to bed.
Mother Goose Quiltie #11
Ride a stick horse to Banbury Cross
To see an old woman ride on a white horse.
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
She will make music wherever she goes.
Stick horses do not go very fast, but they are easy for any boy to manage. Besides, this boy is only going to Banbury Cross, and he does not mind the ride, because he is going to see a wonderful sight. If you can stitch him before he rides away, he will be a fine Quiltie, and you can keep his horse, too.
