Well actually, neither of my old blogs were getting much attention.
The craft blog was being ignored.
The family blog was even more ignored.
I just wasn't 'feeling' either one of them, and wasn't able to get myself motivated to post anything.
So, what to do?
Start a new blog! This is a fresh start, and hopefully will get a lot more attention than the old ones!
And I actually have something to share, right off the bat! We should be so proud of me.
My sweet little niece G celebrated her first birthday earlier this month, and that required a dress.
The pattern calls for bias tape around the neckline and sleeves, but I used elastic instead. The flower was made by folding a strip of fabric in half lengthwise, basting it just inside the fold, then gathering it and twisting it into a flower. I handstitched it to the dress.
After making this dress, I just had to make more, so I whipped up 4 from the same pattern for my own little one, The Bean. I'll have to get some pictures taken of those.
•••Well, whew! A first post! And hopefully more to come. I love reading blogs, and sharing in other people's creativity. Hopefully I have something creative to share with others, too!
