Any woman who sews or knits, or weaves, blends colors in a tapestry or creates a patchwork quilt, knows by the feel that a single thread is weak, but the weaving, the blending, the intertwining with many others makes it strong. Any woman alone without friends to sustain her, to nurture and support, to hold with loving arms, like a single thread is weak. But the weaving, the loving, the nurturing of others, the networks of friendship makes her strong. – “Barbara,” 1994 The Kinship of Women
I came across this quote the other day and had to share. It makes me think of all of you- the friends whose blogs I read, and love, and am inspired by; those of you who read Make it Do, among many other wonderful blogs; the support we give each other in our comments and emails. What a lovely network of friendship- it spans all around the world- weaving a thread that makes us all stronger.
