This is officially my 437th post which seems a long was from my first ever post.
Ive seen my sewing and knitting skills improve in the last two years and I've noticed a huge boost in my confidence. I no longer avoid difficult techniques in patterns instead I take my time, google it and do the best I can.
I've been lucky enough, to win competitions, review products and write tutorials. In fact If you'd have said to me in the beginning I'd have my own tutorial section on my blog I'd have told you to shut up.
My little blog has come a long way since I first set it up. Originally It was just going to be a platform to help me sell things in my etsy shop, and at craft fairs. Until I realised I didn't like selling stuff. I liked making things, and if I was going to sell something, I wanted it to be a custom order I could have fun with, not something I had to churn of 30 of. I like writing, I like writing about sewing and knitting, giving my opinions and sharing my inspiration!
Now this blog is my personal sewing diary. I like to imagine that when I'm 90, old and frail, with arthritis from knitting and terrible eyesight from unpicking seams I can sit and re-read this and remember everything I once did.
This blog gave me my own space when I was a new mum who felt like her identity was melting away, It gave me a creative outlet and introduced me to some of the nicest people I've ever known.
I sincerely hope that the future is just as bright as the past if not brighter! And if you've been reading, thank you. It really means a lot that you've sat an enjoyed my ramblings.
