Commenting Challenge Day 4- Hobbies

I'm a few days behind on the commenting challenge but I'm planning to catch up before the weekend is over. In fact, my goal is to visit every site that linked up! So today's topic is hobbies. I have lots of hobbies. I'm always trying something new and wanting to start a new project before my first one is finished unfortunately but I'm working this summer to finish up all of my incomplete projects.

My real love is sewing. My mom, aunt and both grandmothers did lots of sewing. I guess I came by it honestly. I learned a little from each one of them when it comes to the basics of sewing but when my mom bought her latest sewing machine, I knew I had to learn how to applique. I logged on the computer and searched for all kinds of tutorials on how to applique and just figured it out by trial and error. Below are a few things that I've made!







I'm hoping to open an etsy store in the next couple of weeks. Right now, I have done things for friends and family but just by posting some of these things on Twitter, I've gotten lots of feedback and a couple orders too. Hopefully that etsy site will give me more advertising. I would love to be able to quit my job one day and sew full time!

If anyone is interested in a custom piece, let me know, I would be happy to work with you!

Great stuff. Wish I had learned to sew. Now I could never find the time!

Hi, and thank you for the sweet comment. Wow, you do amazing work! You are so lucky to come from a "sewing" family. I bought a sewing machine from a yard sale and have self taught myself the basics, but nothing like what you can do. I look forward to following you blog. Blessings, Dani

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love to sew/embroider!! I had an Etsy store but since I went back to teaching and now have a baby, it's a bit much for me to keep up with. But your stuff looks great! I'm looking forward to reading your blog! :)
