Stream of Consciousness Saturday. A mouthful of pins.

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

its Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “pin.” Use it as a noun, use it as a verb, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

One of my sisters was a fashion designer in her working days . Of course she worked her way up but designer she was and she traveled the world, New York, Hong Kong, China, Lyon, Paris, Milan, Belfast, London. When I was a little girl I would put a coloured pin in the map to plot her progress. She always looked like a fashion plate to me, she still does, there’s a kind of elegance about her that hard to pin down.
As bright as a new pin that was always her. Even now with her fingers bent and gnarled by arthritis she is as sharp as a new pin where style and fashion are concerned.
She made my wedding dress so many years ago, with Taylor’s chalk, tissue pattern (she made the pattern for my dress and fitted it from scratch) satin,cotton and pins.
When I was younger she made many an outfit for me, using needles and pins.
My most abiding memories of Frankie are her kneeling on the floor, tape measure around her neck, pinning material to a paper pattern, tailors chalk in one hand, pincushion on her wrist, and shears in the other and a mouth full of pins.

Now the tools of my trade were not dissimilar, a pin cushion on my wrist, sharp knife,a staple gun and tape measure and of course a mouthful of pins! But that is another story.
