I AM "STITCHING IT UP"

Thanks to Madame Samm and Jane for this fun hop.

 I decided that I need a lot and I mean a lot of practice in my stitching so that I why I joined this hop. I would not stitch otherwise.

 Some of us learned to read with the Dick and Jane Readers.

 When I saw these two I just knew what I wanted to do with them.

 Another thing it reminds me of is that Bobby Vinton song "Dick and Jane"

DICK & JANE
 Bobby Vinton


 Look, Dick look, look at Jane
See Jane laugh and play Look,
 Dick look, see pretty Jane
 I'm gonna marry her someday
 I've loved her since we were children back in grammar school
 Loved her then and I always will
 Though I know I'm just a fool
 Then one day I kissed her
 But it was all in vain
 Cause I was at their reception to have fun with Dick and Jane
 Look, Dick look,
 look at Jane
 See Jane laugh and play
 Look, Dick look,
 see pretty Jane
I'm gonna marry her someday
 Time has turned some pages
Since they moved away
 I think back in stage
 of the way she'd laugh and play
 Today I received a letter
 that she has passed away
 So one last time
 I kissed her by the flower
s where she'll lay
 Look, Dick look,
 look at Jane See Jane laugh and play
 Look, Dick look,
see pretty Jane
 I'm gonna marry her someday

I took several pictures of this quilt but couldn't get it to show up well....

Here is the list of all those that are part of the hop today...Hope to see you there!

  40. OMG! I have an old Bobby Vinton Album, but don't recall that song. You peeked my curiosity-I have The Greatest Hits Album and that song didn't make it. Funny, we are planning a remodel and I was just thinking about finding a place to sell all those old albums that I don't play any more, but my husband told me to "wait." I have a stack about 18" high and he has a larger collection which he never did play after we moved into this house and he wouldn't let me play on his "new" stereo which is now old. Funny how all of that is passe now, but I hear that vinyl is making a comeback because they last longer than CD's. Your embroidery, and Madam Samm's designs remind me of the Campbell's soup kids! LOL!
