First Post! Why I’m doing this, and Mittens!

A few days ago I decided to start a blog, here’s why:

  1. While I hesitate to call them New Year’s Resolutions, one of mine is to sew more.
  2. I have lots of fabric, patterns for projects I’m excited to do, and a sewing machine, but for whatever reason, I haven’t been sewing much.
  3. I’ve had several opportunities surrounding the ability to use WordPress come up recently.
  4. A few days ago, I was reading this page The Musings of a Dedicated Housefiancee: About, and it said “Publishing what I’m working on encourages me to finish tasks and try new things that I likely wouldn’t otherwise.”

So, basically, several things combined to make it seem like a good idea. I wanted to try something new to help encourage two of my interests (that at various times I’ve considered trying to use as moneymakers): Sewing, and Web Page Building. Anything that helps me with gaining more knowledge is good, and having something to show for what I’ve done always encourages me.

Now, for my current projects and pictures!
