Pure. v. (L. purus. …to separate, free, clear…)

Genuine, real, true, unadulterated…
American Dictionary of the English Language, Noah Webster.
Is there such a thing as pure sewing? Knitting? Crocheting? Any craft?
Thought-provoking points to ponder, as many of us busily continue to sew, knit, crochet, and do other crafts.
Let’s look up craft . . .
Craft. n. (Sax. craft, art, cunning, power, force. . . The primary sense is, to strain or stretch. Hence, strength, skill, a crying out…)
Art, ability, dexterity, skill.
Cunning, art, or skill, in a bad sense…
Art… dexterity in a particular manual occupation; hence, the occupation or employment itself . . .
Hm. There are positive and negative connotations here, and a broiling weekend afternoon ain’t the time for heated debate.
Particularly as this is merely rhetorical musing with a motive of submission to not one, but
two three photo challenges. (he-he!)
Possibly not the purist of motives. 😉 So let’s leave it at that, shall we?
Meanwhile, I might not be the only one with a huge pile of things to mend, sew, finish off, so-o-o . . . .
Get out the ice cream (or hot toddies if you’re lucky enough to be freezing), and have a delightful weekend, everyone!
