I was asked by Terri over at Sew Straight & Gather to be a part of this blog hop. I don’t know what it is about the term blog hop that immediately makes me think of Flubber….anyways, moving on…
So the goal of this blog hop is to help my readers learn more about me, the person behind this blog! You may even find a few new blogs to follow as a result (you can read Terri’s post here, and from there go back a few weeks!). There are four questions that I’m going to attempt to answer:
1. Why do I write? Well….I’m not a very interesting writer. I guess I’d have to confess that the only reason I write is because not everyone wants to just look at photos. You know I always have an overabundance of those! I love reading funny blogs. This is not one of them
2. What am I working on? Besides sewing something? Well, I have an old victorian couch in my basement that is waiting for a makeover. I’ve got about 1/4 of the million staples pulled out, and once the rest are done, I can get to the FUN part – reupholstering! Also, I have unfinished board and batten in our master bedroom, two kids rooms that are still not decorated (after living in this house for almost 3 years!) and a basement that is in desperate need of organization. Maybe that’s why I like to sew so much…It’s something that I actually FINISH!
3. How does it differ from others of it’s genre? I think this question is directed to how my blog (and not my unfinished projects) is different from others in it’s genre. Um….I post the most photos? Haha. Really though, I’m such a new blogger, not even a year yet, so I feel like I’m still figuring out WHAT my genre is. I mean, I know I sew, and I take pictures. But lots of sewing bloggers do that. I’d really like to take the Pattern Workshop soon and start learning how to put my ideas down on paper! So I’m undecided on this question. Sorry. Told you I was a bad writer.
4. How does my writing process work? I always take my photos first, then I upload them all. I start writing and add photos as I write. I don’t make an outline, write drafts or anything a good writer would do. I just type, and make sure everything is spelled correctly, preview it once and then hit publish! I apologize if this was the most boring blog hop post you’ve read in a while, but that’s who I am! Not a very exciting person…and I hoard fabric.
You’ll find Kelly from Handmade Boy posting her answers to these questions next week, so be sure to head over there and read up! I can guarantee you it will be much more interesting! And her boy clothes – AMAZING.
