A Fairy Godmother
30th October 2020
When you think of fairy godmothers, chances are the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella or Glinda from The Wizard of Oz come to mind. Now, whilst Glinda is, technically speaking, a good witch rather than a fairy godmother, we’re overlooking those semantics for the point of our story!
A fairy godmother is the epitome of hope, devoted to nothing more than making the dreams of the pure-hearted possible, and in the case of Cinderella, all with a simple ‘bibbidi-bobbidi-boo’.
Don’t we all have the room for a little ‘bibbidi-bobbidi-boo’ in our own lives?!
Whilst we started dreaming of sinks no longer filled with dirty dishes, pantries filling themselves with groceries and laundries empty of the washing they once held, our thoughts quickly wandered to the transferring of intricate patterns onto fabric, hand stitching binding onto quilts and those UFO’s that require just a ‘little something’ to make all our dreams with needle and thread come true.
After posting the above image on Instagram recently, it turns out it was a fifty-fifty split between how much room our needles and threads had for some ‘bibbidi-bobbidi-boo’. Dima was worried that it would take all the fun out of her stitching while Joy realised that a fairy godmother was the only way she was going to see all her projects come to fruition in her lifetime.
