    Two sisters

    I was traveling around the net and came across this video of 2 sisters, in their 90's who sew. (not quilters though)

    It's 13 minutes and for some reason I watched the whole thing.

    I really have nothing to share except, I'm glad I watched it, thought someone here might too.

    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Thanks for posting this. It's interesting and thought provoking. It makes me think of my mother, who would be almost 96 if we had not lost her many years ago. I could see her expressing many of the same thoughts, especially about not following your heart and using your talents. It's not surprising this little video received important honors at film festivals.

    I watched a few minutes of it. I found it a little depressing. My 88 yr. old Mother lives with us and has beginnings of Dementia. So I "live" with this age thing 27/4 that's enough for me.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
