So here I am, officially trying to connect with the AMAZING online sewing community!
I've been resistant to start a blog. My photography skills suck and my writing is ordinary at best. But, and it's a big but, all the wonderful sewing blogs on the interwebs have really supported and helped me in my sewing endeavors over the last 11 months!
I've never been much of a hobby's sort of person (other than the obvious: shopping, movies, eating). After my not-so-subtle hints, my bf bought me a Janome sewing machine for my birthday last year. It took a while before I was confident enough to make anything. My first project was easy-peasy Christmas bunting - I can't wait to bring it out again in a few months!
Before I made anything, I was absorbed in blogs, books, patterns etc. I'm a 'learn/plan first, do later' kind of girl. I have now sewn quite a few items, but my systematic checking and reading of my most beloved sewing blogs still occurs most evenings.
To dip my toes in the water, I joined Instagram . My first gram (?) was this work in progress By Hand London Polly Top. I was immediately made to feel very welcome by Elisalex (co-founder). This was so encouraging!
While I am already obsessed with Instagram, I also want a place a share my sewing experiences. And so, it's time for me to try and contribute something to this amazing online sewing community.
At the very least, this blog is a place for me to document my sewing challenges and triumphs. If my post's get read and any readers are able to help me out with my sewing questions and problems along the way than that is a bonus. If I am able to help others with their sewing, than that's even better! Wish me luck on my sewing/blogging journey.
Also, I promise to work on improving my photography and writing.
I would love to hear from you, so please fee free to leave a comment.
