 Breath is the thread 
that ties creation together.

-- Morihei Ueshiba

The only place where housework comes before needlework is in the dictionary.

-- Mary Kurtz

It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.

-- Simone Signoret

If everyone gives one thread, 
the poor person will have a shirt.

-- Russian Proverb

She watched and taught the girls 
that sang at their 
embroidery frames 
while the great silk flowers 
grew from their needles . . .

-- Louise Jordan Milne, The Feast of Lanterns

A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread.  

-- George Herbert

  1. How fun, Susan! You poet, you.... (Big grin)

  2. I love this Susan. It reminds me of a drawing this little girl entered into a contest for peace held at our school. When I asked her why she had drawn a needle and thread down at the bottom of her artwork. She said "Oh that, that's the thread that holds us all together".
