My earliest memory of embroidery was with my grandmother when I was about 5 years old. I can remember the room in her house and exactly where I was sitting. She sat beside me and carefully helped me and then left me to continue the stitching while she went to make tea or something. When she returned I proudly held up what I had done and discovered that I had sewed my dress to the project. I was so upset, but what I remember the most was her very calming and soothing voice telling me that it was alright, anything with fabric and a needle could easily be fixed. I don’t remember what happened with that piece of embroidery, but I’ll never forget that voice telling me, “Don’t worry, anything can be fixed with fabric and a needle.” It’s what carries me through to this day as I work on projects that might not turn out quite the way I want them to and it’s the message that I’m passing on to my granddaughter as well. I’m sure it’s why I love fabric and sewing so very much. Anything can be fixed!
I love that antidote!!
I wish more girls were learning sewing skills these days along with playing sports, doing math and science and eventually becoming CEO’s.
Happy Quilting today!!
