About me

My photo
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

Is it just me?

Weird meetings today. Sometimes adults are too much.

Is it just me or am I the only one who sometimes feels that the only part of life that makes complete sense is her sewing life?

Or that the only place she truly can let her shoulders down and be herself is behind her own front door?

Or that the most peaceful place on earth is sitting in front of the sewing machine.

Or is it just me?

My sewing projects are my refuge. That is a big umbrella. Time in front of the machine, of course, but also time at the cutting table, time pre-washing the fabric, time altering patterns.... and the time I spend planning (in my imagination!)

It's not just you! I spend my day at work thinking about being home in my sewing room doing anything sewing related.

I am with you my home and sewing often protects me from insanity

Nope it's not just you. And people don't understand why on the weekends I want to just go home and sew...this is the reason why!
