When I decided to start a blog dedicated to my love of sewing, painting, and all things artsy, I was ridiculed (in the most polite way of course) by my family. Dubbed the "nerd of nerds" since birth, writing a blog about these things did not come as a surprise to my family, but nonetheless they took the opportunity to poke a little fun...
Guess whose having the last laugh now!
So far I have turned 2 of my 4 siblings into bloggers :) and needless to say they are totally hooked/obsessed with blogging, thinking about what they are going to post, designing their page, ect. Everything that I have been obsessing over for the last month or two.
Here are the blogs they have started:
One sister has started a blog all about her photography, it's called Brief Stills (a nod to her being in law school) here is the link : brief-stills.blogspot.com
My other sister has yet to decide what exactly she will be blogging on, but started the blog anyway, its called Ordinary and Spectacular, here is the link to her blog: ordinaryandspectacular.blogspot.com
This has branched out to friends of theirs as well:
Never be Boring, a blog about some very MacGyver'ish adventures, and the link:
I can't wait to see where they take these blogs!
Now, back to sewing, I'm still putting together the border for the sentimental quilt, that is still unnamed. While doing this I came upon a brain storm about the itsy bitsy scraps of fabric that just cannot be used. I have dedicated one trash in my office these scraps, as well as loose threads. Once the bin is filled, I will use them as the stuffing for a dog bed. This has turned my total fabric trash output to O.
If anyone has fabric scraps they are going to throw away, I would gladly put them to use, saving them from the land fill :)
This is my mini effort to go green and help to make my hobby have a slightly lesser impact on the environment.
Happy sewing & recycling!
