Today's Meditation

MONDAY, September 22      Saint Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist (tr)

I choose gingham fabric, every time—not because I have a fixation with squares of alternating colors, but because the checked pattern gives me lines to follow. I can cut the cloth evenly and sew straight seams. Even with my limited skills, I get a presentable result.
