    So glad I stopped by to read this! I have many memories of learning to sew as a young girl. My mom would take out all my wrong stitches and have me sew it back up. LOVE this! and how God does the same transformation in our lives. (Oh, I shudder to think what my life would be without Him!)

  2. Parent win! How often we remember the negative things our parents did instead of moments like these. I wonder how many secret kindnesses my own parents did that I never realized. This really made me think about my parents, my parenting (well and poorly done) and God’s perfect, kind parenting. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love this story Cheri. Beautifully written……

    Love this story. My mom couldn’t show ,sosmy grandmother taught me. She didn’t say a word when I tried to make a dress that was WAY too hard (and weird looking ). I think I carried around that unfinished project for years….

    Love this! I am a seamstress and the photo pulled me in, admittedly. But how true to read that God does fix things and helps us to be better and stronger. And we usually don’t even know.

    1. Christianne — I debated how much of my point to spell out and how much to trust my readers to connect the dots, and you’ve confirmed my choice to leave it open-ended! But I do wish I’d used McCall’s instead of Butterick, now… 😉
