My great grandfather was a tailor and his daughter (my grandmother) was a seamstress, I have always mended my clothes but now I am fully into sewing my own clothes, bags, hats, jackets, etc. I love it as it is practical as well as creative and it gives me a fabulous sense of satisfaction when I can wear my finished outfit and especially when I get compliments for it!!!
I just started in knitting in July 2013 and love it!!! My grandmother tried to teach me as a child but I was too full of dance and song to sit still long enough to knit. Now that I am older it seems my Grandmother's spirit has inspired me to knit!!
