I learned to sew when I was a little girl; my cousin's grandmother taught us how to embroider. I learned to use a sewing machine when I was 12, and made my own clothes for many years. As we've downsized over the years I don't have room any more to set up my machine, but it's still in the closet, waiting to be rediscovered. Sometimes I miss it...

What a great homage to sewing, Linda! Well done!ReplyDelete
What a fabulous collage!ReplyDelete
It's a wonderful collage, obviously full of good memories. My sister use to sew her dresses many years ago. We grew up in a lower-middle class family, so she often had to make her own dresses if she wanted something special. I think it's something our kids missed out on.ReplyDelete
A fantastic collage Linda! I love the pretty colours! xxReplyDelete

A lovely reminder of those skills that we were taught. Great art work. CheersReplyDelete
This is such a lovely, cheerful piece of art!ReplyDelete
I agree with Bill...sadly most girls today have no dreaming idea how to sew. I love your collage, and enjoyed your shared memories. I used to sew a lot, but now my machine is used mostly for mending or for art!ReplyDelete
