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

Busy day today, hopefully the last of this term's marking and the buttons on one shirt.

Now back to human responsibilities.

Molly looks like she understands what is being said to her. That is a precious picture. It is amazing what love and caring can do for an animal.
