I just had to share…I know that there must be lot’s of us “sewing grandmas” out there…..I was at Hancock’s today and they have the Janome Sew Mini at a great price…….and I thought what a great gift for my granddaughter……..then, common sense took over because my “first” granddaughter isn’t due until November. I bought some darling Butterick baby patterns instead. (L0L)
I do hope to be able to teach my granddaughter my love of sewing. I learned to sew on my paternal grandmother’s Montgomery Ward treadle machine when she updated to her first electric machine. I have fond memories of the things she made me….she was the typical grandma of that era….slightly plump and very short, she wore her long gray hair braided on time of her head and was always dressed in a cotton “housedress” covered by a printed apron trimmed in rick rack and bias tape. She made beautiful “half aprons” with organdy insets for gifts and to sell for extra income. They were always in great demand. I realize now that she 10 years younger then than I am now. Today, we hip grannys wear tees and capris, exercise three times a week, crop and color our hair and not only drive but pump our own gas!
While I remember her with much love, To all of us, I say,,,,,YOU GO, GIRL.
God Bless you all.
