Hello, my name is Darby, and I am addicted to sewing.

Hello, my name is Darby, and I am addicted to sewing.

This is my heart on sewing.
And this is going to be my support group. 

Its funny because I used to think sewing was such a hassle. There are so many other faster ways to get my creative groove hot glue or modge podge for example. But somehow, I dont know, maybe I grew up some and gained some patience. A stitch in time right?! Er, maybe that is the wrong colloquialism in this instance.

And my creative endeavors always had a erratic nature. And two thirds of the time I would never finish or I would half ass it and end up with a piece of junk.  I know how to sew pretty well, I actually went to school for it. (costume and fashion) But when I sewed for myself, I always took short cuts and I never liked what I made.  So, why bother?

A few weeks ago I discovered Gertie's Blog for Better Sewing. There was something about this blog that I really fell in love with.  Maybe its the wonderfully personal way that Gertie writes or that she has an actual direction that she is trying to go. Or maybe, just maybe I feel like we could be friends IRL? (isn't that what blogs are kinda about anyway?) Her blog got me thinking... I need direction. I need a focus, a goal, and motivation. But what ever could it be?!
