The Ladies' Work Table Book

Useful and ornamental needlework, knitting, and netting are capable of being made, not only sources of personal gratification, but of high moral benefit, and the means of developing in surpassing loveliness and grace, some of the highest and noblest feelings of the soul.

~Author unknown, from The Ladies' Work Table Book, 1845

  1. I love your quote AND the afternoon! Mine was spent with my parents. They are planting potatoes, peas, beans, beets, and onions. I am slogging through mud! LOL

    How are things your way??

    I see you found the badge. Isn't it a wonderful idea? I found it on Maneula's blog and went right to the facebook site and signed on!
