Danielle Barlow said...

I am the Queen of mending ( though sometimes rather grudgingly)! I love your image :)

Tender loving care and always there.

Lovely Nancy. I can picture you sewing tape over all the brass buttons on your son's jeans. And smiling while you are doing it.

Look at that sewing machine with the flowers... Maybe that's why I'm no good at mending!!

Lovely Nancy!
