Day 32 - The ties that bind

They say when you learn something new, you will hear or see it again in the next few days. Playing "Are you smarter than a fifth grader?" with my students allows me the opportunity to clutter my brain with all sorts of trivia. The sewing machine was invented by Mr. Gutterman. When I got home, Peg's sewing machine and thread were out from her latest sewing and mending stint. I saw the brand name on the spools of thread and my brain instantly made the connection to the game I'd played with my students today. Looks like it's all stitched up!

I had seen Gutterman thread before, but didn't know the connection. Thanks for adding to my trivia :-)
