The story goes this way… I have sewn sing I was 8 years old. I helped my grandmother after she had an accident and like the other girls in the family have sewn since. Now is mostly for fun. Once you are retired, the whole day changes. You think of all the things you will be doing…… you dont. I always have a bin or two full of material. So you think of things to make. Pinterest has been a lot of ideas some work out good some don’t. Oh yeah keep in mind the part of this which leads to One Blind Mice. My vision is distorted. Contrast is fine… black on white…. Green or Red… but red on red… there is a problem. So sewing is always a challenge.
What you must understand is that there are lots of mistake, threads I dont see, pins I dont see, and sometimes seams I have to redo three times……. Alot of times the thread and material are different…… so I can see them..
Recently, a lady mentioned that she had a day care center. I mentioned the aprons, since I had lots of legs and not a lot of new ideas….. I made her aprons for all the kids. A variety of small sizes and colors
. She was very happy as I am told were the kids and this is the cute thank you they sent me.Sso just know that even tho the eye thing may get you down now and then….. or life in general seems a bit tough… even little things like leftover material can make a difference with someone and that all of us are appreciated for what we can do.
