This is How I Roll or First Assignment for Blogging U.

Spool T

To my readers who have faithfully and very sweetly been reading my blog posts: you will see more frequent posts here because I’ve gone and signed up for Blogging 101, a course offered by the blogging software company – – whose platform I use to publish my posts. The posts published while I’m taking this course may or may not be sewing related; they may be scintillating prose or just plain drivel. Please bear with me while I do some learning. You know I love you all.

To any new readers who may venture here, thank you! I’m Samina, and I sew everything (or try to) and like to show you that it can be done. The first assignment is to write a post about “who I am and why I’m here”. The very old and battered t-shirt I own (pictured above) says it all; you know, the spool of thread graphic tying in with my obsession with sewing…….

That sewing obsession is what started this blog. And I must say that only another sewing obsessed person will understand it. I mean, is the activity of wielding needle, thread, fabric and a sewing machine (in the interest of making fashion, décor and other things) worthy of obsession? Of course! The expensive jacket you’re wearing was made on a sewing machine, people! Why should it not be my sewing machine?

And – that is why I’m here; to share the good word. The whole “make your own clothes” thing can be done. There are a million sewing bloggers out there, and I realize that it is quite a monumental task to make myself heard; I’ll be a sewing blogger anyway.

Eagerly anticipating the next assignment from ‘s Blogging U.

Thank you for visiting! I’d love to see your comments and suggestions!

    1. Thanks, Charlene! Feel free to add some words of wisdom of your own; I myself learned a lot from you when you lived around here. And then you went and moved 😦

  1. Hi fellow Blogging101-er! I’ve always been envious of those who can make their own clothes – the only thing I’ve ever managed was a basic A-line skirt that didn’t fit! I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    1. Just followed you too, Libby! I encourage you to keep making the basic items, and don’t give up until you have it fit the way you want. After that it’ll be a piece of cake.


  2. Good for you Samina! I’m glad your daughter’s wedding and all your spring activities went well, and I’m sure they’ll fuel your writing this summer. I look forward to your posts, be they sewing related or not.
