Fun Sewing Quotes

I'm taking a quick minute out to say thank you to all of you who entered the giveaway offered from my shop on Audrey's GiveAways last month. Thanks, Audrey, for the opportunity to be featured, and congratulations to Katy, I hope your housework and gardening are much more fun now in your new apron!!

So.... I've been looking for a good sewing quote to use on Facebook, or in the signature line for my emails. As I looked I found just too many not to share. Here's a peek at some of the good ones I came across. And I'll also leave you with a few pictures of new aprons I have in my Etsy shop and which will also be for sale this weekend at the Hyde Park Street Fair in Boise. Enjoy!

  1. Love these! On a somewhat-related thought, your favorite (only because she is currently your only) granddaughter's pronunciation of the word "bottom" is in fact "bobbin." So she says things like "hurt bobbin" or "wipe bobbin." If this indicates her future ability as a seamstress, is it for better or worse? We are looking forward to having you here for a nice long visit over Thanksgiving!
