Making a Blogging Comeback

So, it's really been a while, eh?  The last time I shared something I made was back in March... and I've only had a couple posts since then, the last one being at the end of April.  Whoops!  Ah well, things happen, life gets busy, and I just haven't felt much like taking photos and blogging lately.  Despite this, I have been super busy in my sewing room!  I have a brand new machine because oh darn, the old one crapped out - a Pfaff Ambition 155 Anniversary Edition that my husband bought me for my 30th birthday (yay!) and I've been feeling really great about how my sewing skills are progressing.


So I do have lots I want to share, and I've been feeling the blogging itch lately, and I think I'm going to try and make it a more regular thing!  I did really enjoy putting together more detailed accounts of the things I've been making, and having a record of what I made and the alterations I made to the pattern is a helpful thing to go back to.  It has also been helpful as I learn and develop my sewing skills to do a quick google of a pattern I'm thinking of making, and read other sewists' experiences and see more photos so I can go into a project with a bit of research.  If I can help at least one other person in their sewing journey, I'm pleased!

I started this blog back in September/ October 2015 as a way to share my personal challenge of going an entire year without buying any clothing.  After that year I just continued to share things I've made, as it honestly isn't that much of a challenge to not buy clothing anymore... I actively dread going to the mall.  So!  I'm going to kick things off again this month/ beginning of October and see how things go this time 'round.

I think I might try and get at least one post up a week, whether that's a finished make, something I'm in the middle of, or just jotting down my thoughts on my sewing practice.  I also just have to listen to the print I have posted in my sewing room and get off my butt & the computer to go take some dang photos once in a while.  I have a couple things planned, and if the weather cooperates I'll get a whole whack of photos done soon and some blog posts scheduled!  Wish me luck 😉
