Thread-u-cation Thursday- Battle Hymn of the Stitcher
Instead of presenting an embroidery stitch this week, I'd like to offer you my new song to stitch by. Music and stitching have a lot in common. They are both rhythmic and measured and done with gusto! So loosen up your pipes, don your thimble and prepare to belt out:

The Battle Hymn of the Stitcher 
(sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic)

Mine eyes have seen the glory of embroidery on quilts.
How a simple stitch can take your quilt from flat to fabulous.
Whether running stitch, or French knot, or the might herringbone,
One stitch is all you need!

Glory, glory to the stitcher!
May your quilt tops look much richer.
Be proud of what you do,
For your work is artistry.
All hail embroidery!

Now don't you feel better!
