"I cannot count my day complete 'til needle, thread and fabric meet."
Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied. * Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859*
Sewing mends the soul. *Author unknown*
"Buttons and patches and the cold wind blowing, The days pass quickly when I am sewing."
"May your bobbins always be full!"
"Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel."
"Her needlework both plain and ornamental was excellent, and she might have put a sewing machine to shame. ~James Edward Austen-Leigh, about Jane Austen~
Useful and ornamental needlework, knitting, and netting are capable of being made,not only sources of personal gratification, but of high moral benefit, and the means of developing in surpassing loveliness and grace, some of the highest and noblest feelings of the soul.
~Author unknown, from The Ladies' Work Table Book, 1845~
"Love is the thread that binds us."
"Those who sleep under a quilt, sleep under a blanket of love."
