Thought some of you could use this when giving a gift of stitching. This was in the June 1995 Quilters Newsletter magazine and goes like this; "This gift is one of time and work, patience and love; it is real and forever, and it is for you and you alone."

    I came across this in the June 1995 Quilters Newletter magazine. I think it should be included with each piece we stitch. "This gift is one of time and work, patience and love; it is real and forever, and it is for your and you alone." Might help some folks get the message that what we do with our hands and hearts is very special to us. Don't you agree? Go to top

      I don't know, I think alot of folks that don't react with proper manners about receiving a gift won't be smart enough or patience enough to understand anything about the intent of the gift.

      Also alot of what I stitch especially the Biblemarker/Bookmarkers, I never know where they are going to end up. Go to top

        I wouldn't add this line for small items such as bookmarks and the like but larger pieces that were done with love for special people or special times in their lives.
        My best immediate reaction to a piece of my stitching was tears, lots and lots of tears. I stitched the roses from L&L for a nun in our parish who celebrated 50 years of professing her vows. I was touched by her reaction too. Go to top
