Saint Anne (More Photoshop Practice)
I have been really lazy about taking pictures of what I'm sewing, but pretty disciplined about playing with other people's old pictures. So here is my tribute to the lovely Saint Ann. Patron saint of housewives, and seamstress alike. She was Mary's mama, don't ya know?
I also feel compelled to point out she also was originally said to have had a virgin birth. Was that a lot more common way back when? Or maybe it just ran in the family. Anyway the Catholic Church had the story straightened out a few centuries back, so I should just stop spreading rumors.
Anyhooo, as my threads break and my seams tweak, it just find it comforting to know that there is a specific saint I should be calling on.
Her feast day is July 26th. Maybe I should throw her a party!
