  1. I haven’t been commenting, although I enjoy your blog every day. Had to tell you that my dh and I just had a good laugh over these sewing sayings. Thank goodness he can laugh!!!!

    • Morning Sissy and Peyton(?)
      I was thinking of you on a few of these! So glad you both got a chuckle out of them. Thanks for being a faithful reader.

  2. If anyone remembers dollmaker Susana Oroyan, she used to have a list. The one I remember is “The one who has to the most fabric when she dies, WINS!’

  3. My smiling hubby ALWAYs references the…” She who dies with the most fabric wins” saying … when we are at a g-sale or shopping. When he looks at me and says “you have already won”… most people who hear it start laughing…cause they just know…

    • Hi Kathie,
      I guess “us seamstresses” have our hubby’s all “trained” alike!! Isn’t it wonderful???

    2–Soft fabric, warm fabric,
    Buy it by the yard.
    Happy fabric, pretty fabric,
    Here’s my credit card.
