Fresh Start

Here I am, blogging again! My old blog is gone, deleted from cyberspace. I felt like I put too much personal stuff out there and got away from my original intent a bit. I want a place where I can plop pictures and descriptions of the projects I'm working on and what I finish. At this point, it's all about sewing and quilting.....used to be about knitting.....hence the generic blog title that could be open to any future crafting endeavors. :)

I tend to just decide that I'm going to try something new. I don't take classes, I don't really learn from someone else (unless you count all the wonderful online bloggers and tutorials that I have learned SO MUCH from), I just jump in and go with it. Last fall I borrowed a sewing machine from my friend Karen for a few months, then I had my mother-in-law's machine for a while, then my mom's machine, before finally getting my own. I have a Janome Sewist 521. It is very basic, but it works. I do seem to need to fiddle with the tension quite a bit, still haven't found the 'perfect' balance, but for quilting it is awesome.

Wow. Sure didn't realize you've only sewn for a couple years. What a great creative journey you've had. Sure glad we 'met!'

I love that you wipe the slate and started over!
