About Bonnie



I learned to sew from my mother at a very young age. I remember my first project was an apron. I sometimes wish I still had that apron to look back on but perhaps my perception of how well I did on it is far better than reality.

I continued to sew for many years later but somehow it fell by the wayside much too long ago. My children are independent now and feeling at a loss for lack of being needed I have been searching for ‘what to do when I grow up’. It has come down to two things: cooking and cloth. I have been cooking since I was old enough to turn on the stove and will continue this passion for many years to come. Sewing and cloth on the other hand is screaming to resurface.

Of late, I have been pouring over books, magazines and the internet on sewing. I can’t seem to get enough of it. This blog ‘Cotton and Linen’ reflects my love of natural fibres. It’s purpose is to force me to focus on projects, to begin and more importantly to finish them. I hope that in sharing my projects with you it will bring some joy and inspiration to you as well.
