New directions for 2012

I have spent a LOT of time reading blogs this year, and I admire all who can actually keep their blogs up to date - unlike me, who most of the time has nothing of interest to write about.  This has led me to think about what I want to achieve with my blog and what I want it to reflect.

At the beginining of the year I thought my blog would be devoted to my sewing adventures as I sewed along with The Sew Weekly.  I did do this for a while, but I just felt I was repeating myself as I was posting my "creations" over at Sew Weekly, and then when life got just too busy to allow much time for sewing, I had nothing sewing related to write about. 

Most of the blogs I have followed this year have been about one particular aspect of the writer's life - which is what most of the "how to" guides I read suggest you do.  I'm not so sure this is what I want at the moment.  I don't want to write about every detail of my very ordinary life - but I don't do enough of any one thing to write about - and the real purpose of my blog (for me) is to just write .... about my ordinary life.  I want to reflect on the sewing, crochet, knitting or whatever the current interest is.  I want to share the joys (or lament about how slack I am) of my horse, my garden, my house, my sewing.  I want to share the highs and lows of being a mother.  I want to explore my "style".

SO - I am going to turn my blog into just that - ramblings of my life.  If you choose to come along for the ride - welcome!


  1. oh Hello!
    So glad your not giving up, I would love to hear the ramblings of your life!! Just being who you are is inspirational enough.
    PS how did the crochet blanket go?

  2. Yay! You're back and blogging again!! :-) I've missed reading your ramblings - looking forward to reading whatever you choose to blog about for 2012. :-)

  3. Thank you Charlotte & Kat for your lovely messages - I have missed you both. I look forward to spending more time with you through this wonderful world of blogging!

  4. Yeahh... I' was missing hearing from you at sw and I'm glad to hear what you up to.

  5. Thank you. Life just got so busy for me last year and somenthing had to give ... unfortunately! One of my goals this year is to MAKE more time to sew.
