Mother’s Day wish list

Mother’s Day in France is on 29th May. Being a franco-kiwi family living in London, sometimes we celebrated the UK date, other times, the French date and if I was lucky, we did both.

Our great-grand mother Elodie was a modeliste and taught my grand-mother to sew and knit from an early age. She then passed on these skills to her four daughters and us, her grand-daughters, at least for sewing. I never managed to knit anything properly but Elodie is having another go…
