I was sewing a fancy dress costume last week for my daughter to wear to school. This was followed a few days later with re-hemming a pair of trousers for my son (bloody M&S trousers shouldn't need re-hemming!).
Anyway, I consciously thought to myself that I was glad my mother taught me how to sew. Ok it was along the lines of cross-stitch (which I do not do at all now) but it has come in very, very useful. Don't get me wrong, I'm not of the standard to make clothes but can certainly make minor adjustments, sew buttons on etc.
So, what are you grateful to your parents for ensuring you are able to do......?
