So in between a million yards of floss (ok, I exaggerated a little but it feels like a million) being dyed every day, custom motto orders and hand carved frames for my ebay business, I am also working on a new motto pattern in my spare time. LOL I think the last time I had spare time was 2004, the year before I started this business. So back to the pattern......
I wanted to do a motto for my office/work room. It will hang above the door. Now to describe this room.....I love antiques. My whole house is antiques so it's no wonder they filtered into my work room. An antique desk, lace curtains, curio cabinet, assorted clocks, treadle sewing machine that I just moved into there and antique mottoes and my samplers on the walls from floor to ceiling. I will show you a couple pictures after I fit in the new floss line. I should say squeeze in because that is what it is going to take to get it in this room.
So for the motto I wanted The Sewing Parlor. Fitting in with the antiques I thought the word parlor was appropriate. So I mentioned this to a good friend (definition of good friend: a person whom you love dearly even if they want (suggest) you change everything you just worked on because they like their idea better). She says I should use The Stitching Parlor. I think Sewing would be a better word and fit in with the antique atmosphere. I would think Victorian ladies had a sewing room, not a stitching room. I reminded her that I have 2 sewing machines in that room, not stitching machines. No, she thinks modern stitchers would prefer Stitching Parlor since I will be selling the chart. And then she casually mentions while trying not to laugh...........that she will want a chart for her STITCHING ROOM! Now the devious mind of my dear friend is showing how crafty and clever she can be when wanting to change my mind on a design! Gotta love her.
So I would love to hear from you. Lets vote on it. I won't be offended if you want stitching instead of sewing. I promise not to cross your names off the list when I have give-aways!! LOL
The Sewing Parlor or The Stitching Parlor
I would love to hear from you.
