Quote Collection

“…she began with the alphabet and numerals, following them with a Scriptural  text or verse of a metrical psalm. Then fancy was letquote f loose on birds, beasts and trees.—Alice Morse Earle, Colonial Days in Old New York, 1890″

I found this quote in Mirra Bank’s Anonymous Was A Woman. I just have to laugh as I imagine a young girl carefully, studiously stitching those letters and numbers then totally cutting loose with the fancy stitches. I believe I felt the same way as I was stitching the more mundane parts of Loara’s Pansy!!
