A Stitch in Time...

All the sewing I'm doing right now made me want to share this little artifact. It is hard to read, but the tube reads 'Superior Quality Mending Skein'.

Being of a certain generation remote from the time when things could be fixed, I barely understood what this was when I found it at the Mission Store. I then realized that I also didn't actually understand what 'a stitch in time saves nine' even means (meant?). So now I feel smarter, and like I've had a little glimpse into the daily life of people living in another time.

And Happy Thanksgiving to you!
