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

Pants and update

First of all thank you to those who left kind comments on my last post. And thanks too for Kay for telling me exactly what I need to do next. I have another Simplicity pants pattern on the chopping block and will transfer those alterations there.

But not tonight. 

Today I played my first ever 18 holes of golf with my husband. When I write my sure to be a best seller book of advice to new brides make sure you remind me to put never say you are going to do something just because you love someone. 

It makes it harder to weasel out of the deal.

Here are my comments on my golf career to date:

If family are reading, a sand wedge makes a lovely present.

No, I was not the one who put so many balls in the water trap that the alligators woke up.

All in all as an experience remarkably like sewing velvet.

For someone you don't even know.

At midnight.

Later folks, I am off to play the princess who needs someone to cook dinner for her.

I believe we are hitting the links, or something or someone, again tomorrow.

Um well that is why I took up skiing, still a long way to go, but I do try and get "brownie points" each season :)

He just doesn't get it when I say I will be as enthusisastic about skiing as he is when he sews/knits/cross stitches his first project.
