When it comes to the needlearts, I fear they will disappear from women's lives if they are not passed on to another (younger) generation by us older more experienced sewers. Sewing has been my life; it has moved me through every stage of my life with projects befitting the events at the time. As I reflect back through my history I cannot imagine how it would have played out without sewing.
As I looked through the various pictures I thought appropriate for this challenge, I remembered one of me with my maternal Grandmother. While I didn't have a long relationship with my grandmother, I do remember her sewing and the notions she pulled out to use. So using that picture, I am busily composing my piece for this month's challenge. It's a glimpse back to the beginning.
How about you? How did you decide on your picture? Was there someone in your life who was determined to see that you learned to sew? Who was it? and what did you learn from her?
