enter My mother was an excellent needlewoman and I remember her making all my clothes without even needing a pattern. Indeed, she used to go to the posh shops in Nottingham, try on the latest styles, announce that they did not meet her exacting standards, and then return home and make a copy which was indistinguishable from the original (apart, that is, from the fact that the fabric came from the market).

And what treasures there were. The old mushroom still there, ancient tape measures with no centimetres marked, knicker elastic, button thread, old packets of hooks and eyes priced at one and fourpence and, best of all, a card with fourteen shades of stranded lisle marked Hose Mending. The button box is a treasure place of shining and colours and gilt and glory. And, like the cupboard with the fabrics, each one brings a memory of a summer dress or a skirt made for a party or a sensible winter coat.


And now it’s tidy and organised and I feel quite inspired. I’ve already made two patchwork cushions – fabric from daughter’s school tunic C 1990 and Liberty needlecord from 1985 – and I’m working on a another one which will be decorated with buttons in small groups bordered with running stitch in linen carpet thread.


So, some of the ‘stuff’ is now being used to good purpose, although, somehow, I can’t see myself using the stranded lisle any time soon.
