Sunday morning, Robinette, Laura, Martha, and I gathered at the Jaycee Hall in Waldorf to decorate our Charles County Hospice tree. We pulled out all the little sheep that we’d knitted at the Sunday sessions last month and tied tiny ribbons around their little necks to make them look festive.
But what to do for a topper? The trees that the garden clubs, florists, and various other semi-professionals were just amazing. We pondered this for quite a while. An angel sheep? A giant bagpipe? What would be appropriate? Then Martha had a brain flash and rolled up the golden I-cord into a giant ball of yarn. Robinette held it in place while we wired it to the top of the tree.
