S Theme - Day 10

Today's "S" word is something I have learned, experienced and loved for the majority of my life. My word today is "Sewing". I started sewing small things at secondary school and it was the only subject I excelled in. I then moved onto making most of my clothes, then when I had Shane and Rachel I made most of their clothes as well. By this stage I was not only sewing clothes but also home furnishings, such as curtains, bedding and cushions. When my marriage broke up I needed to get out there to support my kids so what did I turn to? Yes, my sewing - I started teaching patchwork/quilting at home and also working for a home furnishing store making all of there home furnishing speciality orders. I don't sew  to many clothes these days but I still love my sewing machine. I find when I am sitting sewing it is an extremely relaxing time for me. At the moment I am making a cot quilt for a friends beautiful little boy. I will share my creation when I finish it.
I tried to find a photo of something I have sewn and realized I don't have very many, so here is a shot of a couple of wall hangings I was making on a weekend away many years ago - what the hell is with my hair!!


  1. Quilting! I love that. I wish I had the time to really learn how to quilt. I've made a few "tops" but never actually quilted them into blankets.

    I look forward to seeing your current project.

    Cheers, jj

  2. LMAO @ your hair comment! Too funny! Sewing I also find is good for the soul. You are so creative and it's awesome that you have the time to do what you love to do in life!

  3. LOL! Davine, I didn't realise you were so creative! How gorgeous that you have shared a 'what's with my hair' photo!

    Great Post!


I would love to hear your comments.
