Hi there-I realized that I had better update my blog. Since it had been, like, 7 months!
Within those seven months I have done a lot of sewing and learning to sew. Originally I was going to start quilling and card making for a living. But lets be honest, it's really difficult to make any sort of living that way. It's difficult to make a living as an artist, period! And, I know I'm not THAT good. So, I turned to sewing.
My sister had a new baby in June and I offered to make her a diaper bag. A diaper bag turned into that plus a changing pad, plus a wet bag, plus a wipes bag..plus a pieced blanket...and I was hooked.
Similar to quilling, I love taking strips of fabric (or paper) and turning them from nothing into something beautiful.
I quit my 'real' job a couple weeks ago. I decide to make the leap and do this crazy thing. The next day, my mother in law was diagnosed with brain cancer. Talk about ups and downs.
I was ecstatic for my new adventure, but devastated for my family. So now I am taking each day as it comes. I sew and create when I can, I help my MIL with her needs when I can and I find time for my husband dogs when I can. Oh, yeah, and time for ME! Like this blog and all my new blog friends. :)
Here is a picture of my latest finished sewing project. Mommy and Me aprons for my sister's birthday. I think they came out beautifully! ;)
Til next time,
