    I love how the quotes on this site come along when I most need them. This one, though, is the best. Any chance you could turn this into a cross-stitch sampler that I could sew and hang in my house? The quote and the illustration are perfect, I would love to see this every day as a reminder and a help.

      What a great idea! I’m not a cross-stitcher myself, so I can’t help with that part; but I love the idea of hanging this quote where it can be seen and acted on daily. —Jenny

        I’d love to see “mottos” have a resurgence! Jenny, can you do a blog post on the many marvelous “machines” mentioned in the Bryant family sagas? I’m sure there must be some images of the stenograph machine and the early typewriters mentioned there. I found that fascinating! And maybe the dolls of little miss Daisy? Hugs, K

        Karen, it sounds like you’ve been enjoying Miss Dee Dunmore Bryant and Twenty Minutes Late. They’re fun books to read because they give us so much insight into what American life was like around 1900 with it’s old ways and new inventions. You can read previous posts about Daisy Bryant’s dolls, Mrs. Bryant’s sewing machine, and Ben’s typewriter. In the search box at the top of the screen, just type in “Bryant” and you’ll see links to these results:
        – Daisy Bryant’s Wall of Pictures
        – Daisy Bryant’s New Doll
        – She’s a Beauty (about typewriters)
        – If Only Mother Had a Sewing Machine
        Also, be sure to find Isabella on Pinterest for images of typewriters, sewing machines, and gowns, hats, and gloves Isabella’s characters might have worn. Just click here.
