Some of the fabrics that resulted from my little internet spendy a month or so ago. Watch as this month they are magically transformed, ooh as they are cut, aah as they are sewn, wonder when they will be finished....
So I just signed up for Blogtoberfest, committing to posting here every day this month. I'm hoping it will give me a chance to get better acquainted with blogging again as well as help me figure out how to do things on this confounding interweb blog thingummy! (see extra html at right above blog button for proof! HTH do I get rid of it?) as well as be the
kick in the pants gentle nudge I need to get my creative fires stoked again, and cross over from just ogling others' work, to creating again myself. Thankfully the lovely ladies behind this fest have been gracious enough to just let any old body sign up, without requiring their blogs be immensely popular, well read or even read at all. phew.
I have been thinking for a long time now that I would like to morph this blog into a more crafty-oriented space - a bit less family newsletter, a bit more inspiration gathering and showcase for my creations, if you will. Especially now that we are not halfway around the world from our families, and my mum is no longer threatening all manner of evils if we don't return with her grandbabies, or at-the-very-least-send-pictures-more-regularly-honestly-were-you-raised-by-etiquette-challenged-wolves! Of course, there'll still be plenty of Cole and Immy - that's who I am and where we are right now. Hopefully, this will give me a chance to have a little me shine through too.
And yeah, I realise I could have just started a new separate, dedicated blog, but where's the complications in that? So, people, fill your handles, here we go!!!
