Another corner stitched on the Hoot biscornu!
I've finished another pumpkin, another bird, another pair googly eyes, and another piece of candy corn. I've also added the blue to the black border in the middle. I'm half-way through on this side!
Still spending a lot of time researching my mother's family's ancestry. Why am I only doing my mother's side of the family? Because my father
is Arab, and Arabs were notorious for being nomadic until about fifty
years ago. Their record-keeping is mostly oral, and it's part of our
tradition that our names include the names of our ancestors. So instead
of a middle name, it's my father's name, and his father's, and his
father's, and his father's, etc. It's actually a very good way of
keeping track of people, and so my father's family can trace its roots
from Kuwait, up to Iraq, and down again to Saudi Arabia and then Yemen. My mother's family? I know next to nothing about them.
Wish me luck!
