Here's something a little different to brighten your day! A friend found it somewhere on Facebook:
It's funny, because I perfectly agreed with the first paragraph. I think "Good results are difficult when indifference predominates," is exactly right. Even the beginning of the second paragraph made sense - "When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing."
But after that I lost it! I don't know how many times I've answered the door covered in bits of thread! And I have no idea why you'd want to get French chalk all over your fabric.
This newspaper clipping is old and yellowed, but even when it was printed, however long ago, they clearly thought this advice was already funny. I hope you did too!
