Meet Jessie

May I introduce you to Jessie. She was born in 1901 and died, four years before I was born, in 1957. In this photograph she is about 18 years old.

 I have inherited all her sewing paraphernalia and she has left behind several pieces of embroidery, crochet and tatted items. My mother was also always making things, with knitting and dressmaking; so as a child I had access to fabric and wool, and of course Jessie's needles.  To me crafting is my relaxation, and I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one. Since getting into reading blogs I've discovered a whole world of creative people that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to meet before.

Isn't life grand.


  1. What a shame you never met Jessie but it is wonderful that you inherited her sewing paraphernalia and also her love of sewing.

    1. Thank you for your comment. One thing I do know is that I will make sure my granddaughter follows on, she's only two and a half, but is watching me crochet food for her play kitchen.
