New Year, New Blog

So, I've decided to take the plunge into the world of blogging.  This comes about partly as a result of an early New Year's resolution of sorts I made this fall to become more involved in the internet sewing community.  I've "lurked" in this community for years, but finally decided that actively sharing with the other sewists who have so inspired me over time would be much more rewarding than merely watching from the background.  While I did not initially intend to create a blog, the idea has slowly worked its way to the surface of my mind as an additional method through which to share what I love to do with whomever may be interested.  I also have realized that I would like to have a more concrete way of journaling and documenting my sewing projects, as well as a way to keep my self accountable in working toward some goals--both sewing and personal--I have set for myself.  While I intend this blog to be mostly about my sewing and wearable art projects, I'm sure I will veer off into other subjects here and there.  Topic drift tends to happen sometimes, I have many other interests in life (although few on the same scale as my sewing), and it is my blog after all.  I'm sure the look of things here will change a bit as I learn the technical process of blogging and decide how I want things set up.

I am excited to begin writing about and sharing my adventures in sewing and, hopefully, maybe a few people will be interested in listening!
