First blog for March

Today is very cold and snowy. I have been mulling my decision to sew or not to sew and I think that I have found my problem. I have been researching other people's websites for inspiration, but they are sewing at a level that I cannot attain at this present moment, so somehow I feel inadequate. This is a new phenomenon to me. I need to just get started. Today I will get started on something. I will let you in on my surprise later in the week. Listen to my new music player, enjoy the tunes.

Check out Wal.mart or Mic.haels, they have beading kits. I will tell you it can be

Like Sew Passionista mentioned all of us think that we do not sew as well as others. The trick is to start with easy 2 or 4 piece patterns and from there you begin to get the hang of it and slowly venture into patterns with multiple pieces. Honestly, I love easy patterns, which I like to call instant gratification
