I am not a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination….too fast, too impatient, too….Isabelle. My mother, on the other hand, is a seamstress extraordinaire! She did teach (or tried to) me a few things to get by. As a kid I would “make” myself clothes (make is a gross over-exaggeration….HUGE!) once I would go to bed my mom would un-do/fix my work so I could wear what ever crazy creation I had just dreamed up! She is wonderful that way. Don’t get me wrong I knew she had fixed it, I was fine with that and I was happy she put her touch on everything I tried to sew!
Today, I am grateful that while my father-in-law is visiting I am able to hem his pants. It started with one pair. Then he quickly realized that while he is staying with us why not put my minimal talent to his good use! Smart man! He’s been going back to the store to add to his pants collection and have me do the fixin’. We make a good team that way!
So here’s to another Fantastic Friday!
Peace, Love and Happiness,
