There is always a silver lining....isn't there? To be quite honest with you, I am not an optimist. I never have been. I am a realist. A skeptic. I don't remember ever believing in Santa Claus or other mythical characters.
But, though I am not an optimist, I still am a "hopeful". See my last post if you want to read more. One thing that has brought me a lot of healing has been sewing. It ties my past to my present and also to my future. My Nanny taught me to sew when I was little. Together, we made a doll outfit that I came across when we were cleaning out her house. She is now in a nursing home, her body trapped here while her mind is gone due to Alzheimer's Disease. I have her sewing machine that she purchased and used maybe twice before she lost her eyesight. I also have a lot of her sewing notions so I feel connected to her when I sew. I love sewing for my children, especially all the ruffles that little girls love! I save every outfit I have made my daughter for her to one day look at and pass on to her children or at least play dress up with!
https://www.facebook.com/SilverLinedHarts , and have named my business Silver Lined Harts. My heart yearns for the silver lining. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing something. I have very reasonable rates and will work with you to hand select fabrics that match your personal taste! I am excited about this new venture to share my passion with you!
