By Painter Edward Hopper.
In reference to my earlier reply to Catherine Zeta-Jones wonderful post, “When I grow up, I want to be able to paint like Edward Hopper.”
“Edward Hopper was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. He Died: May 15, 1967, Manhattan, New York City, NY.”
The significance of sewing. I sewed almost my entire life because I liked to design something new, sew it and proudly wear it.
Later in the years, I picked up my friend from college and her mother to have lunch. I wore a top I had designed and sewn. Her mother complimented me on my one of a kind designs. I said to her, I had taken a home economics class in school. She replied I took home economics as well and all we had sewn was a simple apron. I laughed and she was right, I had sewn my entire life. I made my own prom dress with this soft to the touch satin material.
I came from a family of women who sewed their entire lives. My grandmother, my mother, my aunts and cousins. My mother had sewn me the prettiest dresses I wore proudly to school. It takes years of practice to learn to sew almost professionally. The sewing award in the family went to my first cousin who sewed like it came from a store like Macy’s. ~ Natalie
