“With fingers weary and worn,
With eyelids heavy and red,
A woman sat in unwomanly rags,
Plying her needle and thread –
Stitch! stitch! stitch!”
~ Thomas Hood 1799-1845


I put the cutting of lovely quilt squares on hold for a bit today to work on a super secret sewing project. It’s a project I’ve been wanting to attempt for a while. So with Bob Marley in the background, I eagerly got to work.

Setting up for the task…..
