On Sewing

"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."
- Nathanial Hawthorne


  1. I totally agree with this quote! I love to sew!

  2. I have had such an aversion to sewing! But I am trying to overcome it and have even asked a friend to help teach me.

  3. Hi there, I'm Kelli's sister, and just wanted to tell you I dropped in to get your Maple Muffin recipe! They will make a great brunch this morning for the kids, and me! :)

  4. Thank you so much for posting this quote. It says exactly the thought i was looking for but hadn't been able to find.

  5. lbp - I love to sew also - it is so fun to make something that is uniquely yours!

    Kimberly, I am pleased that you are seeking a friend help to learn to sew - that's wonderful! You don't have to love it if it's not your cup of tea, just do it well enough that you can if and when you like! My best advise it so use great thread - no cheap thread - just the good stuff! That way your machine won't get clogged up and your finished project will stay together!

    Meliisa - I hope the muffins were to your liking - thanks for visiting!

    Linda - I found this quote while searching for another and it spoke to me too!
