Inspiration...

After taking hubby to the doctors to have the surgery staples removed from his knee we detoured to the local bookshop to purchase some light reading... him a classic bike mag, and for myself a Australian Country Thread's Stitchery magazine Vol 8 No 6 (some gorgeous stitchery patterns in here to tempt the creative inspiration...).

Under the 'Words of Wisdom' section was a lovely poem that a reader sent in, the writer of the poem is unknown. I thought I would share it with you as the words are lovely...

Our Family
Is like a patchwork quilt
With kindness gently sewn
Each piece is an original
With beauty of its own
With threads of warmth and happiness
It's tightly stitched together
To last in love, throughout the years...
Our family is forever

I also thought how true this poem is for the friendships we have with our girl-friends and quilting-friends...

Happy Stitching
