- Before we go any further read this from Tim Gunn
- If you read it already this week, isn't he right?
- And this is another reason why we sew
- Have almost finished making an imitation suede pantsuit
- Haven't worn a pantsuit since the last century
- And that's not just me
- That Jalie pants pattern is the bomb
- Cut one size smaller because the fabric stretches
- Really enjoying my niece in the basement
- Smell of garlic cooking at 11:00 p.m.
- Sound of washing machine at 3:00 a.m.
- Love having a kid in the house again
- It's the right background noise
- Miss Heidi's first week at big school
- "Get me a book"
- "See I don't know one word, they didn't teach me to read"
- Her big sister was asked "How was school?"
- "I went, I am home."
- She's learning the ropes
- I am fermenting pickles in the spare room closet
- They should have taught me to do this in school
- The front of my house has been attacked by grape vines
- Think we are moving way past possibly the jelly possibilities
- On to vineyard scale
- How do you think Sewing on the Edge would look on a label?
- I can see small feet crushing grapes in the bathtub
- Why is it just when you decide to cut out sugar someone brings home a variety pack of squares?
- Me who can't be left alone in a house with chocolate chips in the cupboard
- Is there such a thing as grape squares?
- What tops go with a pant suit?
- Where do you wear a pant suit?
- Nice fabric though
- New idea for career counselling

- I am doing that for my sister in my basement
- Never underestimate the connections
- 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
