Rita's Birthday

I've been sewing more lately - sewing clothes even!  I never hear my sewing machine without picturing my Aunt Rita at hers.  I'm still using her pin cushion, scissors, clippers and other sewing supplies. Many of the spools of thread have her name marked on them, probably from when she went to classes. She bought braiding by the roll in Christmas colours and miles of ribbons in many colours.  My aim is to use it all and to think of her all the while.

Jack and Rita, Christmas 1986


Happy Birthday, Rita.

Good for you! I have my Basic Sewing Manual off the bookshelf, willing myself to learn.

Lately, I've had a pattern idea that keeps me away at night. Go sew!
