This photo is of my little Kt . . . well of my little Kt a couple of years ago. I can’t believe how much she’s grown up since it was taken. It is so much fun watching her grow, learn, discover and become her own person. As every parent knows parenthood isn’t all roses, but boy oh boy do I love it. BK (before Kt) seems like a lifetime ago. I was a different person back then – for one thing I hadn’t discovered the joy of sewing and I hadn’t learned
“What the mind can conceive and
believe, it can achieve.”
Surviving parenthood (though its touch and go some days!), has given me the confidence to realise that I really can achieve amazing things if I set my mind to them. Even if today’s amazing thing is simply surviving the school pick up!
My dream for Kt is that she will grow up feeling strong and confident and happy with who she is. That she will believe she can achieve anything if she sets her mind to it and is prepared to work hard for her dreams. Kt’s been needing some help with her confidence as she negotiates the bumpy road that school can be & it makes my chest feel tight seeing her struggle. It’s so tricky being a parent and trying to prepare your kids for the big wide world and then letting go enough, to let them venture out into it!
Confidence is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.
I want One Thimble to help people feel more confident with their sewing. When I choose patterns and articles for One Thimble I think about whether they’ll inspire confidence in readers. If you are confident, you can achieve amazing things, things you never believed possible. With confidence you can chase your dreams and

As you have probably figured out, I am a HUGE FAN of quotes. I love it when I read something and it clicks in my head and clarifies the way I’ve been feeling but haven’t had the right words to express.
If you have some favourite quotes about confidence be sure to let me know – I’d love to add them to my growing list! I really believe that confidence is the key to living a happy life.
