Sewing Smiles

Once again life whirls by and drops something unexpected into our laps. As the wind whistles around my house tonight, my best laid blogging plans have once again gone awry and I cannot seem to snatch back my thoughts to make it a reality.

So I thought I'd share a bit of sewing humor instead. I love words and here's a few of my favorite sewing quotes which were found here. Which one do you like the best?

For the Knitters:
                               I like making a piece of string into something I can wear.  
~Elizabeth Zimmerman

It took me years and years of trial efforts to work out that there is absolutely no knitting triumph I can achieve that my husband will think is worth being woken up for.  ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End:  Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

For the Seamsters:
Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Michelangelo to paint your garage.  
~Author Unknown

Those who sleep under a quilt, sleep under a blanket of love.  
~Author Unknown
For the Stashbusters:
Sewing fills my days, not to mention the living room, bedroom, and closets.  ~Author Unknown

I'm a material girl - want to see my fabric collection?  
~Author Unknown
For us all!
The only place where housework comes before needlework is in the dictionary.  
~Mary Kurtz

Any day spent sewing, is a good day.  
~Author Unknown

I hope you got to put a few stitches in something today!

Haha! I love the Michelangelo quote :) Ever since I started really sewing, my mending pile has gone untouched... mostly due to it being "boring" - lol - thanks for the quotes!

Thanks, I'm so glad you commented and let me know you liked them. I was kinda depressed I didn't get what I had planned done.. knowing this hit the spot was a pick me up!
