I belong to a local federation of the wi. My daughter belongs also and we love meeting up with older ladies – some of them just look ancient and in fact are not much older in years than me. I just look and behave much younger! I do however share the same old fashioned ideas when it comes to sewing and knitting hobbies. I like to knit garments that look and feel really comfortable. The colour is also important. Like matching the green in a wonderful bargain second hand skirt. I am learning to use my sewing machine again now – it has sat in its nice shiny cover for 10 years and I’ve been busy with work and other excuses. Having sat with a wi pal and heard about her sewing classes she attends, and seen some of the wonderful makes, I am determined to have a go myself.
