I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

Catch up on Christmas sewing

I felt better after I posted last night and appreciated the comments. I have decided that rather than wait until things settle down and are worked out for me that I should just do what I would do anyway.

So I am posting some pictures of my Christmas sewing. Here are some matching pj's I made for my daughter and grand-daughter. Being a mother of a three month old and tired a lot of the time, DD changed into the pj's half way through Christmas dinner. I am wearing a navy velour sort of smock dress from an Ottobre pattern that was very comfortable for the day and of course I made a sort of matching one for my granddaughter, pictured here with her five month old cousin. I also made her leggings, trimmed a onesie with stretch lace and knit her some little Mary Jane shoes.
