A stitch in time

The old saying goes 'a stitch in time saves nine'. Is this really true I have wondered through my life? I have diligently mended seams and rips before the damage got worst and repeated the catch phrase to myself often, finding it funny that as I get older, the little homilies repeated by my parents have made their way into my vocabulary and thinking.

I'm also reminded of the seemingly reckless behaviour of my grandchildren and carefully watch out for them, anticipating danger and try to avoid spills and slips and think that this too relates to 'a stitch in time saves nine' in another context.

I invite you to contemplate this folkloric jingle and come up with your interpretation
Reveal begins on August 27.


  1. Sounds like a fun one, Sue! It is amazing how so many of the adages are spot on :)

  2. Glad you like it Martha. I had thought it too simple at first, but see there is more too it and I don't know what I'll do.

  3. Fascinating! But I haven't any idea yet on what direction I will go, nor what I will make. Must complete several other tasks first...
