Good-Bye

This post has been simmering in my head for some time, but I've been dragging my feet, mostly for reasons of nostalgia. The reality is, I'm not a blogger anymore. I've loved the sewing community and I'm not going to stop sewing, or sharing my makes on Instagram and in Facebook groups, but the blogging platform just doesn't feel like me anymore. When I started here - so many years ago - it was fun to take and edit pictures, to write a post and edit my content. It's not fun for me anymore - in fact, it's become a chore. And I don't want that weight to bleed into my sewing. As life has become more complex for me, discretionary time is a premium and I'd rather use it to sew, not photograph and write.

I did not arrive at this decision easily, but it feels like the right move at this time. If you're interested in continuing to follow along with my sewing, I do continue to post actively on Instagram at kid.md. My account is private, but I will accept requests from fellow sewists. I also post on several sewing related Facebook groups, particularly on Stashbusting Sewalong. I hope you'll keep in touch!

I am currently planning to leave the blog up, but will not be maintaining the Flickr account that I have used to host photos in the past. As a result, many of the posts will have broken picture links. It's possible I may go back an fix this in the future, but I have no immediate plans to do so.

I appreciate so much all of your support and feedback over the years, and I hope we can stay connected on other social media forums in the future.

Happy Crafting!

I'm sorry you lost your blogjo. I hope you come back when the time is right. I lost the energy and recently found it. All this (waves hands at everything) has made it more important for scientists to get good information out.

So sorry to see you go - you were my first sewing blog and I've enjoyed your posts over the years.
