Ode to Mobile

If you have friends in Mobile, Alabama (or just like the thought of gracious Southern living near the ocean), you will want to see the Kathy Schenkel ornament that Needle Bug in Montgomery has in their shop.   Stitch over the word Mobile to make this a Southern heritage piece.

It has been many years since I regularly made the long trek through the uninhabited wilderness between Montgomery and Mobile (and I ain't NEVER going back in July--I am a Southerner used to the heat but Mobile in summer resembles the surface of the sun) but this ornament takes me back to Alabama.  If your home is where your friends are, Alabama is my true home.

  1. Your day lilies are gorgeous!

  2. Thanks! They love hot and humid conditions and poor soil, thankfully.
