Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done
On earth, As it is in heaven
Give us this day, Our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, The power and the glory

For ever and ever, Amen.

Butterflies (8)

A four bobbin set decorated with a painted butterfly.

Inscription:
If you ever watched a butterfly,
You would think the same;
To call it rather "flutterby"
Is more a fitting name.
For what it has to do with butter
I cannot understand.
But it can surely flutter better
Than any insect can!

Teddy Bears (11)

A four bobbin set decorated with a painted brown teddy bear.

Inscription:
Our Teddy Bear is short and fat, which isn't to be wondered at,
A bear however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.
But do you think it bothers him, to know that he is far from slim,
No, just the other way about, he's proud of being short and stout.


Teddy
