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 – WordPress.com – 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 WordPress.com ‘s Blogging U.
Thank you for visiting! I’d love to see your comments and suggestions!
