Welcome to my blog! It feels a little strange writing to an audience that doesn’t exist yet, but I hope someone, somewhere out there finds me.
First, a bit about me. Until recently I worked full time as a software engineer. A little over a year ago I decided to stop working, so I could be a full time mom to my daughter, who has multiple special needs. That was one of the best decisions I ever made! My long term goal is to work at home designing software.
I have always enjoyed cooking. I LOVE making good food for myself and my loved ones. I feel out of balance if I go for too many days without having time to cook a decent meal. In recent years, sewing has become my hobby of choice. I prefer making clothing, mostly for myself, occasionally for my daughter and others. One thing I like about sewing is that I can be creative without being artistic. I also like that I can make things that are useful.
When thinking about what I wanted my blog to be about, I thought about my favorite blogs I like to read. What topics to I enjoy reading about? What makes one blog more enjoyable than another? I enjoy food blogs that share recipes I might actually make. I enjoy sewing blogs that not only share completed projects, but also talk about the process and other sewing-related topics. I don’t mind if a blog strays off topic once in a while. In all blogs I read, I like it when the personality of the blogger comes through.
So, for now this blog will be about my cooking and sewing adventures. I may even throw in a surprise now and then. I hope you learn a bit about me in the process.
