Most of my clothings, when I was growing up, was sewn by Mum. I remembered she told me she learnt to sew by herself. If she is alive now, I would tell her how much I appreciate her dedication in bringing us up. There were 5 children and she was the best mother. We hardly get sick. We were cleaned and fed.
These are the 2 knitted items that I have kept that she had made. A blue sweater for me (when I was already a teenager). A red/green strip v-check vest for my younger brother when he was in his childhood. The bottom pink strip was a replacement or an added strip. My younger brother passed away 8 years before our Mom passed.
I didn't follow her foot steps in sewing. Her granddaughter does. Mum would be so proud of this granddaughter, who happens to be her first grandchild and a special one too.
