Ruby Thursday's Profile
Creating is in my blood. My maternal grandmother used to make quilts and sell it to farmers during the harvest season. She also embroiders blankets, tablecloth and tea towels. When I was in gradeschool, my mom used to sew pencil cases and throwpillow cases and sells it as a way of augmenting our family’s income. I used to sit under her sewing machine, cutting away the excess threads from the things she has made.
She is into all sorts of creative pursuits. I remember our morning walks where she collects wildflowers, dries them and turns them into pretty home décors. She also makes handmade paper and turns them into lamps, scrapbooks, greeting cards and envelopes. Now, she is into making artisan coco/palm sugar and product packaging.
I practically grew up around my mother’s handmade creations and much of what I know…
