Friday Fictioneers 25th October

Thanks to Rochelle for hosting the weekly Friday Fictioneers challenge.
Her photo choice this week is courtesy of Jean L. Hays
Pins that held nappies and trouser zips,
Bobbins and thimbles for that special stitch,
Buttons and silk from yesteryear,
Everything ref her life right here.
The little things that pleased her so
Matched and patched, you’d never know
Such was her craft to make a repair
Sewn with love and intricate care.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sounds like a little rhyme to sing while sewing away πŸ™‚

    I always really like poetry entries for Friday Fictioneers, and I like this one. I hope she taught her children to sew. All my mum taught me was to just go over it again and again and hope for the best.

  5. Dale says:

    This was lovely and did have a nursery rhyme beat to it!

  6. Something that’s sadly less common in our throw-away society. Right, I’m off to Primark!

  7. granonine says:

    A lovely tribute to all who are talented with needles, thread, and fabrics πŸ™‚

  8. Poem! Nice, and it rhymes too, wish I could do poetry>

  9. James McEwan says:

    Yes, there is something therapeutical above the craft of sewing. Nice poetry.

  10. msjadeli says:

    I like this, it reminds me of “lions and tigers and bears oh my” with its rhythm.

    A great seamstress she was.
