Get to Know
My heart's desire is recreating handmade vintage, unique and modest clothing for all ages. I often wonder about the families of the past as I thumb through vintage patterns with so much history, never to be uncovered, and waiting to be recreated again and again. Once in a while I enjoy a glimpse of a notation or the name of a person of times past written on a pattern, gently used and refolded again by loving hands. How I would love know more details surrounding these patterns. I'm one of those people who would love to walk backward into time with my family when daily living experienced a much slower pace and was extremely full of faith in God, family, love of others and hard work. For now I am teaching Shelbe, our 4 year old grand-daughter to sew. She made her first stitches on a real sewing machine at 3 years. Also at this time we have Lillian, our second grand-daughter on the way. One day we will be sewing and canning and washing clothes on an old ringer washer left to us by my husbands grandmother. Maybe in a way we can... "go back in time".
