It was my mama Katy’s birthday recently and I made her another version of the sleeveless jacket vest, this time in a brown, woven fabric. She finally received it in the post, so now I can share it with you.
Making gifts for other people is one of my favourite things about being creative. As I consider the person I am giving to, thinking of their needs or preferences as I make choices, they come to the front of my consciousness. And as my hands go through the familiar motions of pinning, sewing and cutting, my mind is free to wander and think of times we have been together. Its quite a gift, this creative process.
She tells me that she loves the gift, too. That is such as nice feeling. Thanks, Mama.
