Sewing Project OR How to make Grammy happy
Now I know this is not a big deal to many of you - but for me it is a momentous occasion! It just may be the first thing I've sewn since the pillow I made in 7th grade home ec class. So...yeah it's been a while.
In other words - THE perfect fabric.
A few years ago, I would have promptly brought it over to my Grandmothers house and her trusty old singer sewing machine and she would have quickly sewn it while I had a cup of tea. Followed by a cookie and a "wish you girls would sew" comment thrown in for good meassure.
Gram sewed. She made all my curtains, pillows,comforters - you name it. She sewed it. - For my all of us - Mom, sister, brother, aunt, her great grandkids etc.
It was her thing.
Well she is almost 94 now and basically told us It's high time we learned to sew for ourselves!
So Gram - this is for you - sit back and enjoy the roses!! You've earned it.
