Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in Sewing

Well this is really a question I have asked a few times. Why do I bother blogging at all? It all started, as you probably know, when I decided to keep a record of my sewing. We are nearly 2 years in and, surprisingly, I’m still going. Ok this year I’ve not blogged nearly as […]
