I decided to make a table centrepiece.
I got out the statue. It's simple and white. It's of Mary holding a baby. I love it.
Then I searched through the cupboard for glass things and I got out a barn board box.
I started to place the things in the box when Sophie and Lydia noticed what I was doing. I told them about Mary and how we associate the colour blue with her.
Sophie said, "I have just the thing."
And she disappeared into the living room.
She returned with a blue crocheted square. Then she showed me what she wanted to do with it. She wrapped it around Mary like a shawl.
Lydia was outraged! She said, "You can't put that on Mary! It's off of one of your dogs!"
I told Lydia that it would be fine. The dog was clean.
I got a safety pin and pinned it on. Sophie was just delighted.
Then I suggested that we make a crown of flowers for her head. I couldn't find any blue ribbon. So, we used white and pink.
It is lovely. We are ready.
