If you don't hear Toby Keith jamming in your head, well, you're not living in my head. :)
Welcome to my sewing world! I'm V, a full time mom, full time wife, full time production scheduling specialist and sometimes sewist. I am not, nor will I ever be a super mom. So how do I do it? I have sacrificed sleep, sanity and the occasional Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie to sew. Who needs sleep anyway and I'm pretty sure sanity is over rated. Let's not talk about the cookie, okay?
So what can you expect to find on my blog? Inconsistency! Gosh, I'm not the best at math, but if you add up all the things I am already doing, there just isn't enough of me left for blogger of the year. So I'm not going to make any promises about when or how often I'll post. I have enough content to last a while at this point, so you should have a good run for a while anyway. I've also joined a stash busting sew a long, more on that in a later post, so additional content opportunities there. I will promise detailed photos of my projects in process and discussions about techniques I use.
I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, but my first wearable completed project was a red wrap skirt when I was 10. Since then I have sewed in 4H and FHA, participated in County Fairs (even won a few ribbons), made my senior prom dress and more Christmas gifts than I can count. I have yet to meet a fabric I didn't like and wasn't willing to horde. I have a considerable collection of knits which is amazing since I have never sewn on knit and frankly, am terrified by the prospect of it. Recent cheap-o fabric additions to my knit collection will hopefully change that.
As for actual content, I primarily sew for my oldest child, Thing 1. I occasionally sew for myself. I mend for the hubs and Thing 2, well I just haven't found the right project to sew for him. Thing 1 is a demanding client, but recent fabric purchases have been all about me, so I expect to sew more grown up things this year. In my next post, I will give you a star studded tour of my sewing space. Stay Tuned to the same bat channel at the same bat time!
Questions? Ask away! I'll round them all up and answer them in a later post. Go on, you know you want to ask!
