My Skill My Pride!

Good day Hivians, welcome to this week's last edition of #hivelearners featured contest of week 28 edition 3 titled pride

We all must have some special moments in our lives that we cherished the most, be it academic achievement, decision making on whom to marry or on a job offer, skills acquisition etc. Been proud of oneself is a feeling of one's own worth that is, been happy and satisfied on your accomplishments by yourself without someone else's accolades.

Apart from my academic achievement which I'm really proud of, been able to acquire a skill is a great achievement for me. During my undergraduate days, I found interest in sewing why? Because of consistent disappointment from tailors and unduly high charges. So I made up my mind to learn how to sew and I started during my semester holidays and when school resumes I go for weekends training.

At first, taking body measurements, creation of styles and using of sewing equipments was some how difficult for me and the sewing techniques was like a magic, but with constant usage I got familiarised with it.

During my final year, I suspended the training because of lab work for my final project but I was determined to learn the skill, I had in mind to utilize the one year mandatory service (NYSC) to finish up my skill acquisition.

With determination I got the knowledge of sewing, the skill is what I am proud of anytime any day because it's now part of me and no one can take it away.

Before my government teaching appointment, sewing was my major source of income. I sew bed spreads, curtains, throw pillow covers and make different styles of garments for people, most especially for my myself and my family (my Mom and my sisters).

Note: All pictures are mine

I'm super proud of myself because of the decision I made years back, I do not need to depend sorely on my certificate or anyone before I make earn means. Till now My Sewing Skill has always be my Pride!

Thanks for Visiting and have a lovely weekend!

The art of sowing skills 😎

Although I'm not a lady to judge well. But I'm sure all the styles on this post are designed and sowed by you. And they all are awesome designs.

Kudos to you! 👍

I know what you mean as I started to learn sewing during the covid lockdown and loved it a lot. It started out as a way of having fun and now I'm selling bags to the US. I'm glad you are able to create your own clothes and be unique. Congrats.

You have really a Proudly Skill in your hands dear. 💕
Believe me, when the tailor doesn't sew my suit right, I feel like I have to sew it by myself.

But you are lucky and the black frock is very attractive. This is also my choice.

Acquisition of skills are amazing, it's one of the greatest privileges humans posses.

If only every human could acquire hand work skill the rate at which poverty is rampaging in our society will reduce

It is a beautiful thing to see people who are passionate about their handwork, it is very encouraging for others who are seeking to acquire such skills.

In a society where majority of the youths are infected with the get rich quick syndrome, it is worthy of appraisal to see a lady such as u to have pride in your hand work skills.

The society is proud to have you.

Thanks for sharing.
Nice write up
