300th Post – Needlepoint Quotes

Something different today for my 300th posting since I started blogging. I came across a website with various needlepoint quotes (http://www.quotegarden.com/needlework.html) that I want to share.

The reason I went looking for quotes was to find one to use in thank you notes that I am preparing for an upcoming class our ANG Mainline chapter is offering. More on the class in a future blog.

I think of one of our members, Patrick, when I substitute wife for husband because he says he is constantly losing needles (I have had my fair share go missing despite trying to use magnet holders):
My husband is a human pincushion. ~Author Unknown

Most of us can relate to this one (I have a 5&1/2′ x 3′ cabinet, 4 files drawers (20″ deep x 15″ wide), 10-12′ of books on shelves), and still have a couple free-standing bags of projects):
Sewing fills my days, not to mention the living room, bedroom, and closets. ~Author Unknown

Cabinet

As you can see, I agree with this quote:
Sewing: A creative mess is better than tidy idleness. ~Author Unknown

And, who doesn’t agree:
Any day spent sewing, is a good day. ~Author Unknown

When you have time, read more on the website for some wonderful quotes. Which one makes you smile?

CONGRATULATIONS ! ! ! on your 300th blog!!!
“You’ve come a long way baby!” comes to mind ! ! !
However, from the wonderful site you mentioned, I felt the most apt for anyone involved in any of the needlearts was by an unknown author, “Love is the thread that binds us.” It made me reminisce about threads from Grandma to Mom to you and me…Even our brother, really…I remember him being clothed in adorable little Grandma-made boy-clothes from play clothes to an Easter suit!!!
