Grandma's Picnic Cushion...

My latest cushion is all about summer and picnics
and all things bright and cheery...
Something that I think we all need some of...

Grandma's Picnic Cushion...
 
Summer Picnic…

I love our summer picnics
no dishes to be done,
A soft breeze is blowing
sitting here in the sun.

The pond is full of water
and ducks are paddling by,
Children run and chase them
only to watch them fly.

Cozy pillows, books in hand
watching clouds float past,
The warm rays of sunshine
will inevitably not last.

But not before the games are over
and laughter had by all,
patting backs and shaking hands
and promises to call.

Can these days go on forever
I wish they really would,
A longing for nostalgia
when summer felt so good...

Grandma's Picnic Cushion...

I will be having a giveaway of a slightly different sought this time...
So I will wait till the end of the week 
when the pattern is ready to put up in my etsy shop...
and let everyone know what it is...

Grandma's Picnic Cushion...

I hope my dears are all having a lovely week...
with lots of 
inspiration
and a few sunny days...

What a coincidence...... I was just hooking up one of your granny hearts to applique on Monet's tee for school tomorrow and I see you've been over at MonetPaisley.

I have been admirer of your work for a little bit now and am hoping to add granny's daisy cushion to my couch some time soon.

So happy that we crossed paths (smiley face)

LOL I am doing all my summer cushions in May for "May For Me". I'll be spending my entire summer in ID camping at our summer work and I need to have it as comfy as possible in my screen sun room!! I am a plain jane with colors - green, burgandy, plum but this summer I am going bright bright!! Thanks for the pics - you gave me some great ideas...

I really like that cushion and your poem is lovely :-) We didn't get many picnics this summer as it hasn't stopped raining!

Thank you for your sweet comments over at my place.
