This hop has questions for me to answer, so I'll jump right into those.
1) Why do I write?
|My first blog post! The whirl/walk away dress|
2) What am I working on?
|Did you know the Hosh Pants |
were getting a wide leg option?
Right now I'm in the middle of back-to-school fall sewing, filling in gaps in the kids' wardrobes as well as my own. I've been testing a couple of patterns, so the blog has been quiet, but there has been a lot of sewing in the background! I also pretty much always have a Barbie project in various stages of completion. It's funny, with human clothes, I am very much a project monogamist. I have to finish one before I start another. With Barbie, I tend to get a project going, then let it percolate for a while as I build inspiration.
That's a tough one actually. There are so many blogs out there with a specific focus, but my sewing has never been like that. I sew what I want, when I want. I sew for me, for my kids, sometimes my hubby, often for Barbie and her friends. I make a variety of things with a variety of fabrics, from jeans to swimwear to knit tops to vintage dresses. I like to vary my projects greatly, as it keeps things interesting to me. For me, that variety is what makes my blog different. I do a lot of different things, and I do them well.
I've honestly never really thought about it. I make a thing. I take a zillion pictures of the thing. I write about the thing, including lots of pictures, because I like lots of pretty pictures when I read a blog post. I have always been a very concise and to the point writer, so I let my photographs do most of the talking and keep the text to a minimum. I myself read a ton of blogs of different genres and I notice that when there is a long stretch of text without something pretty to look at, I tend to lose interest, so I try to make my posts as easy to read as I can, assuming you suffer from the same blog post reading ADD as I do. Actually, this post is already so word heavy that I'm getting tired of staring at it. Off to find some pictures!
The last step is to nominate two more bloggers. I'm going to be a blog hop rebel and leave it open. I've enjoyed reading these posts on many blogs, but if you haven't had a chance to answer these questions, I hope you'll consider this post your invitation! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
