One!

My blog is one! Wow. I totally missed my blog anniversary which was March 13th. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. I remember the night I discovered the world of blogs. What an eye-opener this new world has been for me. I have loved every minute of it and know that I will be a part of this for a while yet.

I look back at some of my sewing I was doing then and am sometimes embarrassed. I remember when I bought my first new sewing machine. I remember when all my fabric, batting, notions and patterns actually fit inside my cabinet. I remember when I posted everything I made…

Today, things are different. I’m drooling over a new sewing machine. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to buy one of those beauties, but a girl can dream right? (Really, the Bernina Aurora QE is THE one!) My Janome is great, but it’s a basic machine and has limits- like sewing through layers of fabric. I’m also seriously looking for a serger which I thought I’d never really need. I have so many projects going that I can’t keep my sewing table clean for one day. I’ve tried some embriodery, picked up knitting again and have written tutorials that other’s have actually used. I’ve met many talented people and continue to be inspired daily.

The best is having Chris plan out- on graph paper!- my own sewing/craft room which will eventually be in our unfinished basement. This means I’m sticking around this sewing world for awhile and am getting a wonderful permanent space to do it all in.

So thank you for taking the time to comment, read or just browse. It’s been a great year!

  5. Happy Blogiversary! I love your blog and all you do! You’ve been inspirational (still love the CD Poket) and it was great meeting you! I’m jealous of the planned sewing room. Maybe one day… šŸ™‚

    Yeah for you…yeah for sewing! Although I don’t do it much these days, it’s been a favorite of mine since 7th grade! You’re doing great!

    Take care!
