I hope it doesn’t feel tone deaf to just hop back into projects and sewing and knitting. To me, it’s one of the ways I’m going to remember my mom: She taught me how to sew, she taught me everything I know about style, and she was always interested in what I was working on. The day before she died, she was asking what I was knitting and I showed her the new project and showed her these pictures of what I had just finished. She studied them and said, “That turned out so nice. You’ll get a lot of wear out of that.”

She was right, of course.
