in queste vacanze sto scrivendo diverse lettere e inviando diverse cartoline. Perché scriviamo ancora lettere e cartoline se abbiamo whatsapp, mail, messanger, sms, messaggi vocali whatsapp et cetera?
Perché all'ampliarsi dell'area degli strumenti di comunicazione si riduce progressivamente - e drasticamente - la profondità del contenuto dei messaggi. #letters#mailbox#postcard
Our #mill#girl exhibit is still evolving - last week Executive Director Cassandra added #handcut vinyl #letters and section titles. In addition to #life and #leisure , the exhibit explains the #labor positions girls and women held in 19th century mills:
Doffing - switching out full spindles and bobbins on the machinery for empty ones. This job was assigned to the youngest #children as the work was sporadic, and the children were usually allowed to congregate at the end of the hall or out in the yard to #play during down time. Most reports say this job was more often given to girls instead of #boys who lacked the #patience and focus required for #weaving and #spinning
Spinning - spinners supervise the frame ensuring that extra lint is cleared from the machinery and any broken #thread is mended immediately. Some spinners did not have the assistance of doffers and had twice as much work to do, yet were paid the same.
Weaving - typically, weavers were trained under more experienced mill workers until becoming proficient enough to manage two looms. With enough practice and skill, weavers could take on three or four looms which could increase wages, especially in mills where pay was based on individual productivity.
Drawing In “stretching and knotting of thousands of threads on the frame” (Benita Eisler). The “drawers-in” would feed the threads through guides on the machine to prepare for the dressing process.
Dressing - treating the “webs” or “beams” which served as a framework for the weavers with sizing (a kind of starch) that stiffened the fibers into a stronger base.
Arriésgate. Olvídate de los miedos. De las excusas. Olvídate de todo eso que te hace frenar. Déjate llevar. Disfruta del momento. Hazlo de verdad. Y deja que te amen. Y ámate tú. Mucho. Y ama tú también. Que venga lo que tenga que venir. Que pase lo que tenga que pasar. Pero que nos pille mirándonos. Que nos pille sonriéndonos. Siempre. #friday#home#pencil#notebook#Madrid#letters#night#goodnight

Para todas las mamás que estén enseñando y practicando con sus hijos, esta libreta ayuda mucho con la escritura.
Yo la utilizo mucho, ya que ayuda al niño a cómo escribir de mejor manera o mejorar la escritura. Como pueden ver en la segunda foto, donde están las letras tiene los números explicando como es que se empieza a escribir la letra de manera correcta. #escritura#kids#letters
