Today's Friday Freebie is a day late but awesome just the same. It is a flower wreath by Jacquelynne Steves. The design is suitable for embroidery, applique, needlepoint, or punch embroidery. It can be done in pastels for springs, orange, brown, and yellow for fall, or silver (or gold) with red berries for the holidays.

|Mopsy Comic 1947|
As for me, I went for years without a nickname. Nothing. The closest I got to having one was Leenie. Really? I didn't like it. Not one bit. After all, my sisters had nicknames but not me. Feeling unloved and slighted (I am so sensitive) I went to my father about it. After all, I thought he could fix anything.
"Dad, why don't I have a nickname?"
"You do. It's Leenie."
"That's not a good nickname!"
"What's wrong with it?"
"I don't like it. It sounds dumb."
"I'll think about it."And he did. Soon I was given the nickname Mopsy and I was proud. I finally had a nickname. Proud until the day I asked him where Mopsy came from.
"A comic strip."
"A comic strip? Like Brenda Starr, Star Reporter ....gorgeous redhead with stars in her eyes?"
No, like Mopsy, the secretary in the comic strip."
"Because of her curly black hair?"
"No, because she is scatter-brained like you."
Be careful what you wish for.
Besides, I am not scatter-brained. I am easily distracted.
