This letter makes me smile.
Wanna know "Y"?
(LOL! Ah geez, sometimes I just crack myself up ... !)
It reminds me of Laura Ingalls from "Little House on the Prairie". Laura had long brown braids.
I remember a scene from one of the books where Ma was in a hurry getting Laura and Mary ready for church and accidentally tied Laura's pink ribbons onto Mary's braids and Mary's blue ribbons onto Laura's.
Laura noticed the mistake right away, but didn't say anything because she was so happy that she got to wear something different. She stared at them all thru Mass.
I have absolutely NO idea WHY I remember that from some 35 years ago ... but I do. And it makes me smile.
See? Totally looks like braids. That chain stitch is amazing ... one of the coolest stitches I know.
