Today I’d like to share with you some random thoughts I had wandering in my mind from a lot of time but I’ve never talked about:
Being a Sewing Blogger
1. Becoming a sewing blogger has completely changed my approach to sewing
I’ve always been that kind of (lazy) sewist that cut all thread tails at the same time, at the end of the task, when hemming.
Now that I have to take pics step-by-step I’m becoming much more tidy and neat/clean: I try to cut out thread tails as soon as I leave the sewing machine, just to be sure I don’t have to spend hours Gimp-ing them out later, by night!
2. After a little more than one year, I’m becoming faster in posting about sewing projects(but still hate choose my fav 5 poses between 500)
Yes, a DSLR(affiliate link) is a great thing but… it takes so many pics in so little time!
I really can’t stop pressing the shutter release again and again and again (then, when I have to choose pics I mentally take note of shooting less next time… and I completely forget it before next session!)
3. Writing about sewing isn’t the same of reading sewing blogs
Absolutely harder, especially if your english is rusty as mine!
My vocabulary is slowly growing and my only trick is read-read-read a lot!
I try to learn new words and terms everyday, if you’re reading me from the beginning of this journey I hope you noticed a change in the right direction
4. Sometimes I simply need to sew!
My weekly sewing/blogging time is squeezed between my day-job, a 5yo sweet girl’s mom time, hubby and, rarely, some good sleep time!
Once hub said to me: “You’re no more sewing, why?”
… why? I have not enough time!
Hubby: “Stop blogging, then!”
