A tribute ….

To a lovely lady who ….scan0001


  • Wore snappy checked coats when everyone else wore plain (well it was in the late 40’s)
  • Sewed all my dresses when I was small
  • Taught me to sew – and didn’t complain (too much) about the mess I left
  • Gave me my first sewing machine
  • Celebrated her 80th birthday yesterday



Happy Birthday Mum!

P.S. It was my dad who taught me to knit!
