It's May! So glad.
The May pole ribbons remind me of that lovely thread braid granny used to have in her sewing cabinet
And that reminds me of smocking. I had mixed feelings about smocking on dresses, partly admired it, some nostalgia and partly loathed it. Those were the days of Bishop dresses for little girls.
