Take a Word: Sewing

The image of the woman at the mirror is from the cover of a 1930 issue of Needlecraft magazine, which I found on a very interesting and useful site called magazineart.com. The sewing scene takes place in 1875, according to the info on this cover. The background design is from Wikimedia Commons.
