Sewn Words # 1: Never Underestimate the Power of a Woman with a Sewing Machine
Wise words indeed and I have often thought the same when I am ensconced in my sewing room racing like the clappers on my Janome, foot hard down on the pedal, thrashing it to within an inch of its life and its next new needle.
As a practitioner of free-machine embroidery and keen Sewn Wordsmith myself, I came across this little nugget of wisdom on Pinterest and could not resist sharing it. Now if ever there was an internet site that sucks you in and evaporates your precious time (much more so than Facebook in my opinion and far more interesting than looking at other people's holiday snaps) then it's Pinterest. To the uninitiated Pinterest is a kind of virtual noticeboard where you can pin just about anything that interests you in order to collect ideas and inspiration for different projects many of which are craft and art based.
I have decided therefore to start a new series of quick posts on my blog entitled Sewn Words which may be words I come across on my internet travels or words that spring to mind and which I have sewn myself so hopefully, this will be the first of many wise words.
