When I was a little girl, I loved reading biographies of colonial women...Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Molly Pitcher and Betsy Ross to name a few. All these women as little girls were expected to learn to stitch by making samplers. Stitching samplers also taught the girls letters and numbers and most of all they learned patience and perseverance. Mother often made Daughter take out stitches that were not up to snuff. Maybe it would be good for all 21st century girlies to learn the patience of stitching!
And now I am off to have breakfast with a dear friend. She teaches school so we do not get to socialize a lot from September to May! And by the way, she is a crafter too....even has a craft room!! Have a grand day friends!
