Nowadays, "缪" only appears in the idiom "未雨绸缪", of which the meaning is "to close the windows and doors before it starts to rain (extended meaning: to take precaution)". The meaning of "缪" -- "to wind round, to fetter, to bind" -- later developed into "to secure or close (doors and windows)" in this idiom.
