I ordered this amazing little find from Craftique Redux via Etsy. It’s a small art print on a beautiful wood piece. Came across it as I was “window shopping” some Etsy listings, it spoke to me. Very simple and it reminds me of my mom and I. My mom who has quite a humble background, has been sewing pretty much her entire life. I’ve always watched, helped, and tried to learn what I could from her. There is something about the girl pictured in the print that I feel represents this basic yet valuable craft that is passed down from one generation to the next. Some things my mom has taught me that I would probably never learn in a fancy sewing school. Just as she learned them out of basic necessity years ago with no formal training. I love that she is pictured barefoot. When I’m in my work room, I too like to work with no shoes. I feel like I have more control over the pressure on the sewing machine that way. Plus I’m more comfortable. She’s currently on my bulletin board as a happy reminder of my roots. Looking for the perfect permanent spot for her.
