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

In case you missed it: our new prime minister

Yup, this feels more like us, which maybe says something itself

Congratulations on your new PM! Wish we in the US would understand that we all sink or float together.

Janet said...

I have been enjoying the international attention of our new PM. Why not join in. :)

Couldn't be more eloquently articulated!
Went to bed with a smile on my face Monday after watching the results come in, and woke up the same Tuesday morning!


Kay said...

Barb, you were the first person I thought of when I read the news first thing Tue. morning. Congratulations!

Lynn, I'm hoping this is a harbinger of things to come for the US. Fingers crossed!

I handed out leaflets for his father's campaign while wearing a paper dress with a giant Pierre portrait printed on it. Wish I still had the dress, even though it wouldn't fit!
