Pamela Hathaway Harper  A Stitch In Time 

It all started at last week's sewing club meeting, when Ernestine challenged the idea that one stitch in time would be enough to save nine. Then Maud pointed out that a watched pot must surely boil sometime, and Cloris questioned exactly how many eggs one could safely put into a single basket. As it turned out, no two of the seven women at the meeting (including Florence, Gertrude, Ida, and Sophie) had the same opinion about any of the three quantities. All the quantities suggested by the women, however, were whole numbers greater than zero. Can you figure out how many stitches each woman thought would save nine, how many minutes she believed a watched pot would need to boil, and how many eggs she felt safe putting in one basket?
