When my mother died a year ago, I inherited-among other dear things-her wonderful collection of trims and ribbon for sewing: parts of her projects both finished and unfinished. The colorful, shiny, and elegant piles date back over many years. Among the treasure trove, I find small pieces dating back to her own mother and her handiwork. I sort through the bounty to find just the thing to accent my own ideas and project plans, things I give to my own daughters and grandchildren, and feel strong hands that join with mine.
