Sew Sew...



My mother and my brother, 1942... This is a hand colored picture, colored by my Mom. She did a lot of this, and occasionally did it for the local photography shop, which earned me a picture in their window when I was about a year old.... an infamous angel even then!

My mother could sew. I've mentioned this before, but it bears repeating, as she could REALLY sew. It was a way of saving money, but I think it gave her greater pleasure than that...

She was very talented. Her mother was an artist, something that I will address soon, as I've found a wonderful picture of my mother that was later replicated by my grandmother. My mother could paint, but I think she found more pleasure in the tactile art of sewing. Creating. Molding. She made outfits for my sister and I that matched, when we were younger, and sometimes they were similar, but not exactly the same. I have video of the grandchildren learning to sew by my mother's hand. As I think I've said before, my sister picked up this talent and is very good at it, but I was too impatient. It's the A. D. D, (grin). I CAN sew, but I refuse to baste and all that stuff, so my creations were ... well... not consistent.

but my mother could really sew..

I will include some more pictures as soon as I scan them, but I have this one ready... She made this suit for my brother...


Isn't he a cutie!

yeah... she had some bodacious shoes. She wears a 7-71/2 now, but I THINK she wore a size 6... I think these are the funkiest...
