Things have gotten a bit busy around here, as they tend to do. I just read a post on Etsy that I really liked - not really a history lesson, but a reference to history... It caught my eye because it's about needlework, which I'm liking more and more as I do it more. I like it for itself, but I also like its links to the past.
Go, look: Needlework from the Drawers of Daughters - it's much more eloquent than I am.
