I am honored to lead in a toast
To a friend - and a teacher, who most
Of the aspects of stitchin’
A garment that’s bitchin’
Gives us craft most unique. Let us boast:
Here’s to Elsie! Who always is startin’
A kilt in familial tartan;
This has brought her much fame-
She’s a grand Scottish Dame!
Though her trappings remain rather Spartan.
