A time to sew and a time to rip#MondayMusings

Ripping time I’ve always been fond of sewing as far as I can remember and used to love making little garments for my little dollies as a little girl.  In school, needlework was compulsory and as an 8 year old, we had to make a pleated skirt, a smocked nightdress  and I can’t remember the third garment…perhaps it was embroidered table mats?
