Slow Sunday Stitching

“In emerald tufts, flowers purple, blue and white;
Like sapphire, pearl, and rich embroidery,
Buckled below fair knighthood’s bending knee;
Fairies use flower for their charactery.”
― William Shakespeare

 

“Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that – one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery.”
– Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

 

I am still slowly; very, very slowly, stitching blocks from the Aunt Bea’s Parlor pattern.

I have finished block number 16.
