I’m slowly working on the site, and figuring out what I want to add and where. I’ve already started adding links to some of my favorite sites. Many of them will be about the 18th and 19th centuries, and sewing/costuming. I’ve always loved costumes, and especially clothing from those eras. I recently learned how to sew (I’m still learning) and even made a few things before I had to take a bit of a break. I’m hoping to get back to it soon. I have some friends who also enjoy sewing and love those eras. I’ve met a lot of interesting people with similar interests, so I look forward to learning more as well as meeting more folks! Obviously I’m no expert, and I also won’t be doing a “how to” blog about sewing or anything like that. As I said, this is just my little space on the web so I can share with my friends and family.
I’m not sure how soon I’ll be able to get back to sewing, but I look forward to it. It’s a very soothing thing for me, even if I’m having trouble or not quite getting things right. I just love turning on some music, or having the TV on (usually the History Channel) and working away on my project. I’ve missed it so much! Time to get back to it, I think.
For those of you who sew, what’s your favorite thing about it? Is there anything you love to do when you’re working on a project, like listening to certain tunes or watching movies that get you in the mood? Maybe even a celebratory “that’s all for today” drink of wine or tea when you’re done?
