  1. What a nice message and memories of your mom’s inspiration in your life. My mom too sewed my clothes when I was in grade school, and is still willing to take a tuck here and there when I ask. :) Baking, sewing, family, discipline, and good work ethics, a nice legacy to pass on :)

I would love to hear from you! Happy Homemaking from me to you!
