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

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

I feel there is a special bond women have with dogs and to my mind this is what it looks like:

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.
