Why create a blog?

.... when you can't even bring yourself to use the word blog as a verb. Perhaps the internet really isn't the place for me.

And so, here at the beginning, I need to recognise the overwhelming reasons for creating a new blog for my sewing, and let's ignore all the other things I should be doing.

Firstly, I have become somewhat infatuated with these two; Skirt As Top and A Little Gray and a series they have called Film Petit, creating kid's outfits inspired by great movies. I've begun to work on an outfit that can only be described as ridiculous and it's sole raison d'etre is to be blogged about (aaarggh the verb snuck in).

Secondly, You And Mie has just announced a Japanese Sewing Book Series, and I really wanted to join in. Even if only I knew I was joining in as my internet presence is, and shall remain, minimal.

Thirdly (I feel like I'm importing a powerpoint presentation into a blog!), I've been very impressed by the work that other sewists have done in documenting how they've constructed things, sharing tips and tricks, and taking beautiful pictures. I can't promise to do any of that, but you all impress me, and sometimes I might just try.

And finally, I thought up an amusing, anonymous, joke name for my husband.....


  1. Welcome to Blogworld, or it is Blogdom? Whatever.
    I like your title name and look forward to seeing your posts - especially about Japanese book patterns.

  2. Thanks. Thanks for noticing me out here in the web wilderness and being my first "commenter".
    There must be some awesome mountain biking trails around where you live, I look at your photos and love the garments but they also make me want to get out and ride!

  3. Woohoo!! Welcome to the highly addictive world of blogging :) So happy that you'll be sewing along. Please let me know how it's going and I can't wait to see what you sew!

  4. I'm so pleased to see that you did start a blog! Can't wait to find out more about your creations.

  5. Ahh I was wondering if I had missed something. I am glad you now have somewhere to talk about your sewing, I love seeing the things you make!

    1. Thanks. I'm sure there are lots of sewing blogs that I'm not yet aware of either. But internet time is inversely proportional to sewing time....


I get a real kick out of knowing you've visited the blog and love to read comments. Thanks.
