The premise of the blog hop is nice and simple with just four questions to answer:
I started writing this blog in 2011 to keep track of my stitching progress. I had just rediscovered my love of quilting and part of my inspiration was all the wonderful sewing and quilting blogs so I was excited to connect with that community. I see my blog as a way of recording not only my projects but also snippets of our life here in New Zealand, including family, pets, home, garden and baking. I tend to jump around projects a bit; I still love quilting but there is just something so satisfying about a quick finish!! Since last year I have also fallen in love again with knitting and clothes sewing.
Like most crafters, I create because I love it. Making things is part of my normal. I love to make things for our home, for the children and for myself! I am also loving the process of planning and making my own wardrobe.
I could never claim that my work is special or unique in any way because there are so many talented and creative people out there making wonderful things. And as Julie said I don't think I really belong to any genre because of the jumping around of projects that I do!
What am I working on now?
My current quilting project is the Chateau Hexagon quilt, you can see from the crease marks that I have been ignoring it lately. I must get back to it!
I wanted to challenge myself with my knitting so I am working on my very first shawl. Thankfully with the long trip to Napier last weekend I had plenty of knitting time so I am getting quite close to finishing.
As for my wardrobe, I am starting to think of spring and summer. First up is a black skirt which was actually part of my winter planning that I didn't get to. Then I have a few fabrics I bought in the beginning of the year waiting to be made up into some summer tops.
Now, rather than passing the blog hop onto three friends, I saw a different idea at Sew Useful Designs: I am passing it onto YOU if you'd like to participate! I'd love to learn more about you, just answer the four questions and post about them on next Monday the 6th October. And please let me know if you decide to participate, I would love to come and read your post. J Wendy xx
