Starting Young

Here I am with my mom, back in the early 70's! I was always around fabric, patterns and sewing machines!

Here on the left is the grandma that really influenced me to love sewing. She made all kinds of hand sewn quilts. She also made dresses and bonnet out of necessity. She lived on a farm and money was tight. Bonnets were a must with hours in her garden in the hot summer sun. (The little guy in the middle is my brother).
