Freebie ~ When you were a tadpole …

My Father used to quote this to my Mother to make her laugh, and much like the poet, he meant every word!  It’s free for your personal stitching enjoyment only, and not to be put to any commercial use.

Happy stitching, happy romancing!


When you were a tadpole ...
