Here I Go!

I know what you’re thinking. Why another blog?

Because none of the other blogs fit what I want to discuss here — namely my adventures into sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, etc.

I’m hardly an expert — more like a bumbler who really, really, REALLY enjoys textiles.

My recent trip to Iceland inspired me to re-learn knitting. I learned to knit and crochet as a teenager, from a book called The Mary Frances Knitting and Crocheting Book by Jane Eayre Fryer.

Jane EAYRE? Yes, I think that’s a pseudonym, but it’s something to research!

Traveling to Iceland didn’t make me want to buy any of the knitwear (I limited myself to a cap) — but it made me want to learn how to MAKE it.

I do love to quilt, although I don’t do as much as I’d like.

And I make some of my own clothes. In fact, I have a backlog of patterns and fabrics for a lovely spring and summer wardrobe.

So I better hop to it.

I won’t post every day — once or twice a week, probably. Will you go with me on the journey?

I hope you’ll also read my blog on the writing life, Ink in My Coffee;
the blog of poetry, Circadian Poems; the blog on books and book-buying adventures, called A Biblio Paradise; and the blog of tarot, Kemmryk.

Please join me. And point me towards other blogs of interest!
