February News

February 2016 ~ THE HEN HOUSE of Charlotte…..

 

Did you know…..?

Once a year on February 8th, women in Japan bring their worn and broken sewing pins and needles to the local shrine or temple and pay tribute to the tools that have served them well in the previous year.

During a memorial service, the needles are laid to rest in a block of tofu. The tofu serves to comfort, soothe, and protect the needles. In doing so, needle workers show respect for their tools, give thanks for their faithful service, and pray to improve their sewing skills in the next year.

 

“Pick up a needle and thread, and stitch together something particular and honest and beautiful, because we need it. I need it.” –Shauna Niequist, Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life –  See more at: http://www.serendipitysaoristudio.com/blog/marking-time-1714-0#sthash.WzndWAZl.dpuf

Have you noticed the similarities between Quilting and Gardening?

How many seed catalogs do you have arriving, stacked and saved?

Are you saving egg cartons or eggshells, or other items, to start your seedlings?

Do you have raised beds or traditional?

Do you use straw or newspaper in your walkways?

 

Get out and enjoy a crisp walk before Spring returns.

Wishing you creative stitching.
