My mom, Esther Denise Sobering, died on May 31, 2022.
Many of you on Instagram asked to know more about her. I wrote her obituary the other day and maybe this will give you a glimpse into the woman, wife, mother, friend and professional my mom was during her life. She, like my dad was such an inspiration, supporter and encourager in my personal and professional life.
I could never sew like she could. She made a new outfit for herself last fall (at age 92) using some of my Yoshiko Jinzenji fabric. I bought her a vintage pattern and of course the instructions were missing so she adapted the pattern and sewed away until she had the pants and vest that she envisioned.
You all surprised me on my last post. I truly didn't think anyone was reading any more. Now that my caretaking responsibilities and daily worries are over, I will have more time to put into this space. I think my mom would like that. She was one of my faithful readers.
