"Let's Start At The Very Beginning"

Here I am writing my first blog post. I must confess I find this whole blogging world rather daunting. However; I am going to give it a try. I worry that I won't have the time to keep it up, but here goes nothing.....

The Purpose of this blog is to write about my sewing projects, and hopefully give you other seamstresses out there an idea or two. I would also love to get ideas from any of you who love to sew! I plan on putting up pictures of my projects, and if you see something you like, let me know. I do sew for other people.

I love to sew! I started experimenting with it when I was a little girl. The first thing I ever sewed, with a machine, was a piece of paper. *smile* My mom had me practice sewing straight lines on it. My first project was a log cabin quilt. I liked making that quilt, but I soon discovered that my real passion was clothing!

I started making clothes for my little sister. Little girls' clothes are great for beginners. Then I began sewing for myself. I loved the accomplished feeling you experience when you are able to wear something you made with your own hands. Especially if you did everything right, and it looks good. :)

Then I made my first period costume, and I was hooked! It actually turned out terribly, but I still knew that I wanted to keep on making costumes. I have since gotten much better, thankfully, and have made a period costume from almost every era.

So there you have it, my first post. Did I do OK? Hopefully my next post will be about the sewing project I'm working on, and will have pictures. I have to figure out how to work this whole blog thing. :)
