Well here I am! I finally caved and decided to start blogging. As I was racking my mind to figure out what to post for my very first time, I guess an introductory would be fitting. I am brand new Mama, new wife and very new "seamstress". I intend for this blog to be primarily about my journey of learning to sew, but I am sure it will incorporate my other loves - food (cooking and dining out), wine, gardening, travel, music, my family and yes, my dog Norman.
That's him, and my new little girl, Lucia Rose. Her blanket actually happens to be my very first sewing project (since college, anyways)! It is from the Amy Butler book Little Stitches. It's a great, easy pattern to follow and I have also made a few for shower gifts. Using a little soft minkee makes it super cozy.
That's it for now. I just wanted to get this up and running, more posts soon!
