The sewcialist community seems to be divided on the two-timing thing. Some folks love developing relationships with many projects at once, while some are absolutely faithful and may as well be wearing blinders. For most of my sewing life, I’ve been a one-plan woman. Getting started can be the hardest part for me, so when that’s done, I pretty much plow through to the end. Those things in my drawers that I call Unfinished Objects (UFOs) are, in truth, Will Never Be Finished Objects (WNBFOs). If I’ve become so perturbed with something that it gets put away, it is likely that it will languish there until I throw/give it away or reuse the fabric for something else. Very few exceptions.
But lately, in the past month or two, I’ve been flirting with the other side. Continue reading
As with most blogs, the number of spam comments that hits my site far surpasses that of legitimate ones. I use an excellent filtering plugin (shout out, Akismet!), so they are never published. However, once in a blue moon, a valid comment ends up the in filters, so I usually do a very quick once-over prior to trashing.

Here’s hoping I can keep my spammers entertained with such a range of reactions in the future. ;-) Have a great weekend!
The last few weeks have included a trip to California, an illness upon returning, and some seriously misplaced mojo. All moxie-inviting advice is welcome! And now I present… my writing about thinking about sewing.
Great sewing habit post from The Coletterie. Normally, I spend well more than 15 minutes per day on sewing related tasks, but when the mojo is hiding, this seems like a good way to begin coaxing it out. I also like that she noted the time doesn’t have to be spent sewing – a good point, because working in my studio, pressing prewashed fabrics, cleaning up scraps from past projects, putting away various notions/tools, etc. tends to make me much more likely to actually sew.
On my cutting table: Continue reading
A few weeks ago, I e-met another blogger, Kim (11:59 Studio), with whom I felt an instant connection — I love her blog, the style of her projects, and her writing. She even began blogging during the same month as I did. So I was tickled when she notified me that she was awarding me a Liebster, which goes to promising blogs with fewer than 200 followers. Thanks, Kim!
As part of the award, I am paying it forward by Liebstering several others. I don’t think I can see exactly how many total followers a blog has (and if I can, I don’t know how), but I know these are relatively small. Anyway, I dig ‘em… Continue reading
