This says it all!

This is what I really love about sewing.

I certainly enjoy the process of making a garment, and I definitely enjoy wearing my own creations, but at the very heart of things, is creating something that expressed who I am.

It also connects me to my very dear Mum who left us 5 years ago now.  Mum taught me to sew and sewing always connects me to her.  That is very special for me and eases the pain of her loss.

Mum is also with me when I teach.  Whether it reminds me of my learning with her, or hearing her say things like "a good press will fix that problem", she is with me every day I work with my lovely students.

God bless you Mum.
