'Twas A Day in October (Part 2) ~
Some orange and green,
And purple, too;
A big smile from Phyllis Smith of St. Jacob,
Is wonderful proof;
Now what have we here?
An industrious soul;
Cutting strips of fabric diligently by hand,
And collecting them in a basket right by her stand;
Do you recognize her, yet . . .
Of course you do,
It's Sheri Glasscock, the owner of Calico Moon;
Came all the way from Lebanon, Illinois, indeed she did,
Her shop specializes in civil war fabrics, antiques, and gifts;
And here we see her with a mighty big rig,
A whopper of a rug needs a frame to weave;
Those little strips of fabric she cut, oh so patiently.
This one became the cover for an antique stool at Calico Moon!
