Handmade in USA
On Saturday mornings, we would go to "town" where there was a Kresge's store. They had a donut machine and a soda fountain and a store-full of little things we could afford all with little tags "made in Japan".
Kinda like "made in China", only for ten cents then.
The men of the family always went along, and they stood around in front of the store and swapped stories
and pocket knives while the women went inside to shop. (This was before TV and Internet. Families had
only ONE car. CHURCH was our social network.
PJ found this little flag at a yard sale and it still has its little tag. I saved it for something special.
The bear is made from the roly-poly pattern by Maureen. (She has such a following we are now calling her
by one name, like J-Lo and Beyonce and Shakira. Her pattern name is Sweet Meadows Farm.
I would like to say Rebecca enjoyed my story, but she seemed in a big hurry to leave for school. Thank you if you listened and have a wonderful weekend.
