A little treasure.

I found this wonderful book last week. For anyone interested in needlework of the past this book is so interesting. I've scanned a few pages for myself and will be selling it on my website this weekend. I thought I show my blogging friends it first.

What follows is a little poem written in the front of the book.

I've embroidered a frock,
And I've sewn the long seams,
While I stitched up a heartache
And mended my dreams.

I've patched a torn garment,
And darned a big rent
While I've worked in new hopes
And a sweeter content.

Why stitching brings gladness,
Or ease for Life's pain,
And healing from sadness,
I cannot explain.

But for little hopes baffled,
And foolish tears shed,
I have sought and found comfort
With needle and thread.

This little poem made me smile as it was the needle and thread that kept me going this week after my husbands van accident. He is OK but very shaken.
