Today my work bench in my little pink, green, brown and orange space that we now refer as Lady Land thanks to a funny commercial on TV, is covered in a wedding dress. I was about to throw it away as it had no sentimental value and no end of coaxing would make my daughter want it because there was no sentimental attachment for her either to an event that took place in it a life time ago which is a bit sad but oh well. But then I remembered with much sentimental value the journey my mother and I had in the making of this dress. Her making, me whining and my best friend laughing because no one had EVER seen me in a dress before.
My mum made it in 9 weeks whilst working 2 jobs as a single mum and I remember every pin prick she delivered as she nipped and tucked. Where they on purpose? Who knows? I mean I was a little bugger of a kid so ....
I am very excited about this. I have never done a quilt before.....Help!!!

I am off to finish building shelves in the walk in robe now ( man land) which is what started all of this finding hidden dresses in the first place.
