Well, seeing as though I was raised in an extremely cloistered
environment and it has left its mark on me, the hardest thing for me is
having them flounder with situations or circumstances that are way above
my head, because it reminds me of my own limitations.

Is this Melinda Meahan under a new name, perchance?  If so, I've been
missing you and wondering how you were faring.  If not, please excuse
the error.  ;-)

Nah, Like my kids, They thrived on healthy neglect and that's doing
right for them. A lot of love and a little indulgence.

So we not only sew, but we have a very similar child-raising
"philosophy"!    ;-)

You got it. They only exception is that you probably sew a lot better
than I do.

No.  I use much the same philosophy there.  I sew for function.  I like
to make clothes because I can make things very comfortable the way I
like them, not the way the magazines and TV, etc., say they should be.
I also like to take shortcuts.  I am not good with fiddly things.

Indeed!  Some of those people look scary!  One of the judges on Design
Star on HGTV (ok, I'm a sucker, I watch) - the fashion designer - looks
like a refugee.  Poor woman.  I want to feed her.  LOL!

Oh, I'm so glad! I sew for fun and function. since my granddaughter
consider me the Sewing Machine Queen, nothing much else matters. I try
for a credible job but no longer let my need for perfection get in the
way.It use to take me for ever to complete anything, but have learned
that most of what I considered substandard is a lot better than anything
I've ever bought in RTW.

When I aimed for perfection, nothing ever met my standards.  I'd work
and work and throw it away in a fit of pique.  It's no good!  But now, I
can live with a crooked seam - or a pucker - it's not like anything is
all that fitted anymore, I wouldn't dare fit to this lumpy person, and
besides, it wouldn't be comfy!

Sewing for fun!  That's a much better idea!

A person after my own heart.  Don't care anywhere near as much for the
process as I do for the finished result.

Ditto.  People are always astonished when they see me in something new,
and then say "But you LIKE to sew, don't you?" and I swiftly reply "No,
I just like the results."  As far as I am concerned, it is another
household chore, like cooking delicious, elegant meals which cater to
dh's diabetes and keep his glucose level exactly where the doc wants it
while allowing him to "eat like a king".

There is that.  Few parts of the process are all that entertaining.  I
think that's why I like to treadle -- it gives me something to do while
I wait for the seam to be done.

Being nine months and twenty-four days older doesn't count
towards being an "elder".  ;-

But who's counting?  Hehehe, Mary agrees with me.  Why, I could have
been ahead of you in school and everything!  I graduated high school in
1955.  Were you just a junior that year?  See?
