My mom is great at arranging flowers, and she brought
over this arrangement for me to enjoy the other day. It contains
my great-grandma's yarn, needle book, darning foot and
her sewing basket. The antique sewing machine belonged
to my other great-grandma. I'm thankful I don't feel the need
to patch socks anymore- but it would be fun to sew with
such a pretty sewing machine! I admire those women of
the past who worked so hard for their families.
A wife of noble character, who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
from Proverbs 31
I'm joining Table Top Tuesday today.
There's lots of good ideas there!
