- Just spent the morning replacing a zipper in a jacket for my youngest son
- This is the ultimate test of devotion
- I would change "in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer"
- To "would you replace a zipper for this person"
- That would clear the church out of the 50% who wouldn't make it
- Wonderful piece in the NYTimes on blogger burnout
- None of that happening here
- Explains to me that those wonderful DYI palaces are another business
- Not that if anyone offered me my own line based on my fabulous blog I would turn it down
- What would that be?
- Patterns for the apple shape?
- A waterpic for dog teeth?
- For my mother a walker with skiis for the winter?
- Frozen dinners that were healthier than from scratch and from the market?
- You all have my number
- Two more Renfrews and then it's back to shirts
- Joined the Archer shirt sew-along
- So happy there is now a paper pattern
- Sticking paper together on the dining room table is best done by someone less random
- Am considering throwing out one dull work outfit every month until I go part-time
- I think this is brilliant
- Better do an outfit count first
- One of the great things about being a mature type
- Is that you are old enough to see that what goes around comes around
- Very reassuring
- The kids came home with head lice
- They and every other kid in the school system apparently
- How did this happen when there are so many perfectionist mothers around these days?
- Our mothers gave us canned creamed corn and white bread and we were louse free
- Finished my first ever crochet project
- A lap quilt big enough to cover two king sized beds
- I got carried away
- Either that or I should have counted stitches as I went
- Might make a dishcoth next
- If I could sew all day every day would I?
- Love to find out
- Going to NYC end of October to see the kids and buy buttons
- Am holding my breath
- Why do 18 year old students wait for an elevator to take them up one flight of stairs?
- Another mystery of life
- 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 I write a monthly humour/sewing column for 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 Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
