Recently Dana had a contest on her blog asking you to send in a photo that represents you. This is was my photo and it totally represents me.
this is a photo of the foot of my mom's Singer sewing machine.
She sewed me many a checkered dress on this machine. I didn't learn to really sew until I was an adult but now I love to sew. I didn't find most of my passions until recent years. I love things that are old and have meaning. I am often as wound up as a bobbin. I rarely change my color thread to match the fabric when I sew and do the same in life, I am a "whatever works" kind of person. My needle is never as sharp as it should be and I use it until it breaks. Sewing has given me confidence, groceries for my family, encircled me with friends. I have cried and laughed with sewing buddies. My girls will grow up sewing by my side and I hope they will create for their entire lives.
What photo would represent you?
