My mom started teaching me to sew when I was 5 years old. There have been a few brief dry spells in the ensuing 50+ years, but not many. My one regret is that I didn't take a picture of everything I ever made. Recently, though, a childhood friend posted a picture on Facebook of me wearing the very first outfit I sewed for myself (I was 10 or 11). Her mother had taken the picture in 1968. I was thrilled.
