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

The first day of the rest of my life

In case you are wondering what a person looks like at 6:30 a.m. on the morning she gets up and realizes there are no more six hour meetings in her future this is what this is. 

Now it's only teaching, exactly what she wants, hanging out with her granddaughter, who arrived because mommy was off to work, and sewing, lots of sewing.

Also, thanks--I didn't know I needed bunny antennae to complete my leisure attire, but that's definitely what's missing for me.

Congratulations! From a teacher (up to her eyeballs in "senioritis" and "spring fever") who understands... I'm so JEALOUS!
