Diddily Dee Dot's Dreamland for Children Everywhere
Fri, 17 Oct 2008
Yet another very old Hans Christian Andersen story from 1846, I think, It's a little strange. a bit like the maan himself.
|Before reading this little story
by Hans Christian Andersen, beware of its strange
meanings, Diddily thinks they are wonderfully woven
into the story.
There was once a
Darning-needle which thought itself so fine, that
it imagined it was a Sewing-needle.
you hold me," the Darning-needle said to the
fingers as they took it up, "or you may lose me,
and, if I fall, it is a great question whether I
shall be found again, for I am so
be managed," said the Fingers and they laid hold of
it tight round the body.
"See, I have a train!"
the Darning-needle said, and it drew a long thread
after it, in which there was no knot.
Fingers applied the needle to the Cook's slipper,
the upper leather of which had burst and required
"That is coarse work!" the Needle said.
"I shall never get through it. I shall break! I am
breaking!" and it did break.

Well, I've used many a darning needle in my time,
being ancient. But I have never met one who had
been on such a journey. Love the story's Dot. XXX
