A Stitch in Time Saves Nine


Means exactly what I thought it did!  If you sew up a hole immediately then it will not grow to a bigger hole - i.e. one stitch NOW saves NINE stitches later...

SO how does this relate to the modern world???.... who mends anything today?

"As ye doth sew, so shall ye rip"!

In my classroom in the 70"s ( yes, I know I am OLD!) I had this saying stitched on a burlap wall hanging...

I loved the idea but where did the saying come from????  any thoughts?
