Stop for a moment and Take a breath

Faery by my bed


This is a fairy figurine that I purchased several years ago because it reminded me of my baby girl who is just about all grown up!  But this fairy also reminds me of other things too which is why she sits on my night stand next to my bed.  She is there to remind me to slow down, to remember to take care of myself and to reflect on the things that truly matter to me…So for this moment my readers, I need to set aside sewing, stop and take a breath and share some thoughts with you.

I have spent the last 4 months birthing this blog.  Yes birthing, because while I have been so excited to do this project, it has been a bit laboring.  I am my geek squad that developed this site as well as the writer/author and the sewing artist who is suppose to be sewing so I have something to blog about!  I am certain things will smooth out soon, but be patient with me as I work through the bugs.

As for why I decided to create this site – well…I think it was several things.  For one, I’ve really been inspired by other fellow bloggers.  There are some wonderful sites on the internet, beautifully done and that provide a wealth of sewing information.

Then…the other reason – a good friend of mine, Gina, feels that I should teach sewing classes.  I adore her confidence in my abilities but wish that I could feel as sure.  It occurred to me after mulling her suggestion around a bit that maybe a blog site would be a good starting place to entertain this notion.  Only time will tell and because I love adventures, I will press on and see where I end up!

I look forward to the months and seasons to come and maybe at some point in the future we will find a way to come together in Paris as sewing artists, to share our creative thoughts and abilities of sewing over a wonderful glass of wine!  Okay…break is over and time to get back to work!  “Tata for Now!”
