I suppose it looks quite a lot and I was actually quite surprised when I gathered them all together. Bear in mind, I am at a stage in my life where my children are grown up and I no longer work outside the home, which means my days are mine to do with as I please.
I am in awe of the number of mums with young children, whom I have met online and who sew or craft and blog. I am continually amazed at their ability to fit in sewing time, whilst raising a family. I take my hat off to you all.
My five months blogging has brought me so much more than time spent sewing. I am especially pleased with the skills I have had to learn to run my blog, in particular, teaching myself a little html. For example, I like buttons the same size, like things to line up and like to be able to change the size of things. Learning a little html has enabled me to do this.
My Photoshop skills have also improved. I have SO much more to learn in this area and this is one of my goals for 2012.
The best thing I've discovered while blogging, is the people I've met. The online sewing and crafting community is a very generous, warm and welcoming group of people. Where else can you find:
- Free tutorials and patterns
- Help and advice whenever you need it
- People who want to listen to what you have to say about sewing
- People who will compliment you on your sewing achievements
- A never ending supply of sewing and crafting inspiration?
