Why I'm blogging?
After buying a top of the line sewing machine three years ago I had the frightening realization I didn't know what I was doing with it or how I was suppose to begin sewing. I loved the idea of making garments, home decorations, quilting projects, bags etc… I wanted to be able to make beautiful things and have people ooh and ahh. But, with each project I would realize that I have lots to learn. I remember one of my first shirts I attempted to make. I decided to use my serger and serged a hole right in the middle of the shirt. This was thrown to the side and never finished, it was much too small anyway and what to do with a hole in the middle. (I thought, when i get really good (and lose some weight) I'll figure out how to fix this darn hole). This type of thing happened over and over, but i kept trying. I guess you can say this is my journey of learning how to sew, quilt, embellish, embroider, knit, crochet and even cook/bake and do any type of home making. As I go along in this blog my plan is to give the links of how I learned to do these terrific hobbies. I'm still learning too. I'm no expert and would love the company of others on this journey of being a domestic goddess in our own worlds.
