Happy Tuesday, dear readers! I had every intention of posting yesterday, but things got a little sticky! You see, the little porcelain letter C fell off the cold side of kitchen faucet, and I thought that super glue would be just the ticket to fix it. I think I got more glue on myself than the intended target and I spent a bit of time trying to pry my fingers apart and then peel the dried glue off. In any case, I’m back today, more or less glue free.
The picture above is a close up of a vintage piece of linen I bought nearly 10 years ago. It’s about 18'” square and done in an intricate and neatly executed red stitching. The seller thought it was likely done by a young girl demonstrating her embroidery skills. I love the addition of the date-1913-and it occurred to me that this piece of linen is now 100 years old. Which leaves me to wonder-will anything I sew, or write be around 100 years from now, still being used or read by someone else wondering about the person I was?
Have you ever thought about this, and if so, what would you choose? A photograph, or painting? A novel or perhaps a handmade bag or necklace? A recipe you created, or a poem?
Please glue, or write your thoughts below.
