The seamstress

It's been a while since Gracie told you about any of her visitors to her bazaar so here we are;this is 'the seamstress' She's no ordinary seamstress though- young maidens have been known to sell all they treasure just to have the seamstress make them a gown.You see the seamstress gives her young customer a silver thimble which they must place under their pillow as they sleep.The next day the seamstress will wear the same thimble as she sews the gown,all the whilst muttering strange words and working so quickly it would make one's head spin to watch.At twilight,the young maiden will find their new gown in a cedarwood box on their doorstep along with a delicate fine silver thimble necklace.
Gracie has met a few maiden's wearing the tell tale thimble necklaces and has to admit she has never met happier ladies.They love to tell of how the day they first slipped on their new gowns;their dreams have come true and joy has followed them since.
Gracie pondered whether the seamstress had stitched herself one of these bewitching gowns but maybe she had as she guessed stitching with hope and dreams everyday must be a joyful thing indeed.
