Summer is coming and we need more time for this
|Slip and slide|
|Our own Olympics with the cousins.|
And rainy days doing this
|Baking with Rosie the bear.|
I owe a big debt of gratitude to the very successful bloggers who were gracious enough to put me on their blog rolls. Without whom, I would have been shouting into an echo chamber. I also owe a huge thank you to the bloggers who re-listed my new blog when the old one (Making the Seam) was corrupted. And then, there are all the cheerleaders, who were always there with a kind word or a sewing tip to keep a beginner going and motivated.
I still love sewing and plan to use the sewing community websites such as Pattern Review and The Sewing Forum more. My handle is Twinkle, or Twinkle72. Hopefully, we can keep in touch there. I do plan to continue reading sewing blogs, but I think I will pick one or two days a week to have a peak rather than everyday. I love them, but for me, it's almost been an addiction!
What I am not interested in is photography, graphic design, HTML, modelling, or creative writing. I think this shows in my blog, and it is the reason that I am bowing out. I just have no interest in keeping up. I might pop back up in years to come. Who knows, if the next 15 years go well, I might be one of those empty-nester, wise heads on the internet dispensing advice and encouraging the newbies!
