Friday Confession

In addition to resolutions, the New Year always makes me think of toasts, blessings and sign-offs.

Friends of ours are amateur astronomers, and they always toast "May you have dark, clear skies".

The traditional sailor blessing is for "...fair winds and following seas."

I've seen weavers sign-off with "Treadle on!"

Of course, all this got me wondering about sewing toasts and blessings. I've been trying to come up with my own. The best I've got so far is: "May your needle stay sharp and your grainline run true."

How about you? What are some of the sewing blessings (or toasts or sign-offs) that you can think of?

Off topic..

I was trying to find your email address to thank you for the "Pay it forward" luck. I absolutely LOVE the fabric cards. They are such a wonderful and thoughtful gif which I will treasure. Where did you get them made?
