I am a mother, a 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 book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge was published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

On the way home

I have just heard that my spouse has crossed the border into Canada with a van packed to the gills with a year's worth of my fabric orders, a new dress form, and a cooler full of frozen chicken breasts (they were on sale in Tennessee and I use them for Mr. Rascal's home made food.)

My hairdresser remarked this morning that customs will think he is a drag queen on a diet.

Oh the things that man does for love.

That's as good as a midnight run to the drugstore for "feminine products." Enjoy the haul! (And your husband too, of course!)

I know you'll be happy to see him....for so many reasons. He's another "keeper."

Lovely husband - lucky you and Mr Rascal!
