Making Things 2

My Mum made fourteen
Summer dresses in late Spring;
for my sister and me.

We chose our fabrics.
She had a full-time
job but,
sewed on her machine;

every evening so
that my sister and me had;
seven dresses each!

Footnote:

I am sure, as children, we did not appreciate the amount of love and work that went into those dresses, year after year.

Now, of course, she has died and gone home but I hope my realisation gets through to her!

Thanks so much Mum, I love and miss you. Xxx❤❤❤
