About me

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

You see it everywhere

A quick post before I start to get ready for work.

First of all I want to thank Robin for fixing up my project button for me and giving me something sharper that will also fit in the page. Nice to have smart friends.

I also want to say that once you get into this shirt thing you see it every where. Last night I read my book doing my little stint on the treadmill, in an attempt to counter all my Hallowe'en candy snacks, and read about a character who looked "typically chic, in a tailored white shirt with black slacks and a skinny, ribbed black sweater."

This weekend, I opened my husband's copy of Bon Appetit and there was this picture of a chef, and I thought what a sharp shirt with those turn-back cuffs, and  wondered how it would look in that cotton twill stuff they have a Fabric.com

Good to have an interest in life.
