The Queen is Dead, Long Live the Queen
In other times and different places, when a king died it was proclaimed 'The King is dead, long live the king." The meaning and intent was to create a line of succession. One had passed on to a new and different kingdom. And a new one was issued into and crowned in this one. And sew it is.
I am grateful to have a lovely new queen. Far lovelier and more graceful than that which I had wished upon a Christmas star for. And though I try to be a simple person with simple needs and wantings, one who makes do and is happy to do so....
I must confess that it is oh so very nice to have a shiny new star gleaming in my little sewing room. I have unwrapped her from her little box and connected her power source and am now learning to push her buttons and test her pedaling powers that be.
I have been known to fuss and fume at my computer console when it seems that all I ask to do, is thwarted and undone...and so it seems it is with me and all things electronic. But I am perservering and teaching this old dog new tricks and I must say it is fun!
