About me

My photo
I am a mother, a 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 book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge was published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

My halftime flypaper thoughts


  • OK I am not watching football but am aware it's on
  • Daisy is fast asleep too
  • Sewing on the road working well
  • Iron outside, cut on a cardboard mat on the bed, and machines on the table
  • Works if you keep your elbows tight
  • Times are changing
  • Nylon stockings are out whatever the temperature and leg veins
  • Eyebrows are in, coloured eye shadow is out
  • As far as I am concerned tailor tacks never go out of style
  • Saw an ad for a food preservation system that means you can eat food you made 35 years ago
  • Think about that
  • Who was a better cook 35 years ago?
  • Let's add water and rehydrate tuna casserole made with a can of mushroom soup mix with crumbled potato chips on top
  • You can tell a lot about a man by the look on his wife's face
  • Been to enough office Christmas parties to have figured that out
  • Riding my bike on the beach in the mornings
  • Watch the pelicans glide like masters of the universe
  • Pre-historic faces and all that grace
  • Consider that peacocks don't fly
  • Hope girls in high school are holding that thought
  • Not much is nicer than a row of perfect buttonholes
  • Any body figured out why it takes a dog 20 minutes to find the exact right place to pee
  • I wish I could play the clarinet
  • Ended piano when the teacher said come back when you have rhythm 
  • Good news Mom I said
  • I don't ever have to go back
  • But really
  • The clarinet is the musical equivalent of a shawl collar wool velour coat
  • You know what I mean?
  • Any one want to split a Key Lime pie with me?
  • Not many of those in Nova Scotia
  • Pies or splitters
  • My turn for dishes
  • Catch you later
