Tomorrow when I have more time I am going to list my ten blogging sisters, it's late and it has been a very busy day, but I do want to share a sisterhood of sewing story. A long time ago now, remember the first war in Iraq, I was in a fabric store and they had the radio on. They were announcing the first bombing of Bagdad. Over at the next cutting table a mild looking senior lady picked up her bolts and threw them hard down on the table and quite forcefully said "Another bunch of stupid men starting a stupid war that is only going to make things hard for women and the children they are trying to take care of." At that one moment I felt that the sisterhood of women was transcending all other realities and politics, hard to explain, just that ordinary women and mothers had so much more in common than all the other constructs of government and country.
I have never forgotten that moment.
More tomorrow. Thanks Karen.
