I need something other than looking after the children 24/7. I aim to post about what inspires and interest me as a way to focus on my creativity which so often gets put on a back burner or even forgotten. The blog is not all going to be sewing but it will be the main ‘thread’ as I picked the name ‘And Sew I’ to encompass this. I can’t keep up with my ideas myself normally and since deciding to start this my brain has exploded. I hope it will allow me to priorities ideas as well as play and experiment with purpose but no pressure .
I actually hate the word blog as it feels like starting one is a cliché so I am going to think of it as more of a sketch book or diary. Some posts will just be a photo (as I’m a visual person) with a little explanation or a record of a thought. I’m not going to post every day but I will try to do at least once a week but as we all know life gets in the way. I’m sure posts will come in waves when the blog is all I can think about and other times a desert as I will have forgot I’m even trying to do it!
I admit I would love this blog to become my career! Who wouldn’t!! It would enable me to work around my girls and the family needs. Currently I have the fantasy that I can write craft and quilt patterns which would generate ‘pin money’ and I could feel like I had created and run a business myself (something I have always wanted to do). I also have been inspired by the many mummy blogs which have kept me company during many days and nights bored senseless. Of course I can write as wittily and amusingly as them, right?!!!…. right????
You will find I will write as I think, with only husband doing a general grammar and spell check. In honesty, I’m crap at writing so please excuse anything which jars with you. Practice makes perfect so doing more writing will help me. Anyway follow and I hope you enjoy seeing inside my mad little brain…
