While I was sewing Saturday afternoon I began to think about how sewing is a family tradition for us. All of the women on my mom’s side of the family sew. When Mom and her two sisters and my grandma would get together they would always have a lot of sewing projects to work on. Being from Texas, iced tea and Mississippi Mud Bars would always be involved. And sometimes candy corn! It was a festive time of patterns and fabric and sewing machines going.
