After a two year gap, From My Mother to Me is back with an amazing sponsor, a new line-up of bloggers and an incredible giveaway...
Just look at this dreamy selection of fabrics? Can you guess who our wonderful sponsor is? With an amazing giveaway running all next week!
Back in 2014 I invited some of my blogging friends to pay tribute to the 'gifts' that their mothers had passed on to them.
My mother passed her sewing skills to me, almost without realising it, and I am so grateful. Sewing and creating connects us with previous generations and cultures, and I wanted to hear other bloggers' stories.
We had some amazing stories, and I loved hearing about history, heritage and amazing mothers.
Check out Celina, from Petit a Petit's gorgeous mother! Is it any wonder that Celina is the queen of style? Full post here
Here's my mother, aged 16 wearing the coat she made from a Vogue pattern, assisted by the lady next to her, Miss Taylor (!) who taught her to sew.... details here
And there were some other wonderful stories and pictures. Here's Suz from Sewpony's mother on her wedding day. She sewed her own wedding dress and all three bridesmaid dresses. Aren't they beautiful? Her post is here
And An at StraightGrain went back a generation and wrote about her grandmother and her seamstress skills, it was so lovely to see these two generations together
, From My Mother To Me returns, just in time for Mother's Day weekend
All next week, there will be a new team of bloggers sharing their stories of their mothers..
I'm thrilled with this line up of new friends and old friend bloggers from across the globe.
