Devastation is the only word to describe what is going on in the path of Irma. We have been to some of these islands and the people were very poor before this storm. I can’t even imagine not being able to get clean water. The sadness of it seems to bog me down. So after picking up my co-op order of rice and dates, feeding the bees which has become a daily need, and dealing with the garden produce,
I decided to start work on this happy scarecrow. It was designed for turn under applique which is not going to happen here for a small seasonal wall hanging. So I am putting seam-a-seam on the back of pieces and re-cutting them. This has a lot of small pieces, but it should go fairly fast. There are enough pieces cut for two hangings so I’ll have one for me and one for a gift.
