Sweet Sunbonnet Sue Off To Market

Here we find our sweet Sue getting ready for the market.. Mother needs quite a few things and it's been decided that little Sue can go to the store all by herself. However, Sue wants her friend May to come along with they will meet at the corner. Sue has dresses in one of her cutest outfits for the trip..she feels quite like a big girl going to the store alone.
"Let's see" she says.."what all Mother has on her list". She checks with Mother to make sure she can tell what all to get, and then starts for the door. Then she hears Mother singing...
"Sweet little Sue..where are your shoes??? Did you forget them??". Sue giggles, she always goes barefoot and has forgotten that for the trip to store, she will need shoes. She finishes dressing..and out the door she hurries. She knows that when she returns with the sugar, Mother will make her wonderful 3 layer coconut cake. It's one of her favorites and she just can't wait.........
* Note: This sweet little Sue was done by Do as a starter block for the baby Sue quilt. This is one of the blocks she decided aginst using. I thought it was so cute, I just had to show and share it.

  2. Hi CC! I've always loved Sunbonnet Sue, and I loved this story about her trip to the market! She really is beautiful in her pinks and purples!.. Hope you're enjoying your weekend! I have just finished baking three homemade apple pies and a big batch of homemade chili! My sense of smell was never good, and I can't quite imagine what that mixture of aromas must make my house smell like right now! (0; I hope it doesn't smell bad, when by gosh, it SHOULD be smelling DIVINE after all the work I put into it all! LOL! ~tina
