Description

This work features the text in English & Chinese. Needlework is the way that modest Chinese women expressed their love. Under the warm glow of candlelight, a woman might sew a bib for her new-born baby or embroidering shoes for her husband. It could be a windy, rainy night, or in the dead of winter, but the image of a woman with her needlework can warm the reader's heart.
