Industrious in the use of the needle

BluediamondsI've been wanting to embroider all summer and finally picked up the needle and thread (Bright yellow sweatshirt with ugly floral design, made new by covering it with a blue and yellow square set on the diagonal; embroidery added for texture) / August 2010

“The art of working with the needle any fanciful design, upon webs woven of linen, cotton or silk is of the highest antiquity.

... It is clear from Homer that the Grecian ladies were skilled and industrious in the use of the needle.”

~ A Short Historical Sketch on Tapestry and Embroidery by J. Getz, 1895
