When I was writing my blog post yesterday, I got annoying with all the random categories and tags so this morning I sat down, deleted all my categories and tags, made new ones and assigned them to all of my old blog posts. Here´s some stuff I discovered about myself: I have a lot of posts in the ´Random Ramblings´ category… Apparently I like to ramble, especially in 2013. I wrote more blogposts in 2013 than in 2014, 2015 and 2016 combined. I had A LOT of free time pre-baby! I described my house as ¨requires minimum amounts of work¨ … Continue reading Looking back
I was scrolling through some unblogged pictures and came across these two. Both pictures were taken in the summer of 2014, when I was about the same size as I am now (only difference is that I had already stopped breastfeeding, so my cup size was a lot smaller) The dress on the left (StyleArc Mia) was made for a wedding at the beginning of July, the dress on the right (Colette Truffle) was made for a family gathering at the end of June. How I felt in both dresses is totally clear from the expression on my face. I … Continue reading It´s all a matter of perception.
For the first three weeks after baby was born, I was sewing up a storm. She was sleeping when she wasn´t eating and I was happy to be able to sew clothes that weren´t maternity wear. But the last week or two, she´s been sleeping less and crying more so I´ve been spending less and less time in my sewing room. Not in the least because exhaustion of nursing 15 times a day is wearing me down and I just want to lie on the couch. Nothing wrong with that 5 weeks post partum but it´s not really what I … Continue reading Thinking about size and shape.
As I´m typing this there is a small wonderful bundle of joy snoring away next to me.
2016, a whole new year and even though I don´t believe in resolutions, I do have one.
Better done than perfect! I´ve been struggling with wanting to do things perfectly my entire life and if I couldn´t do them perfectly, I just didn´t do them or I put them off for so long that there was no way to do them even half decently anymore.
This was particularly a problem with blogging. I had so much stuff to tell and share, so many ideas but I wanted them all to be perfect and that took so much time and energy that it just never got done.
So for this year, I do not promise you perfect pictures, I do not promise witty well written texts and reviews but I will promise to at least share what I have been doing. Yes, they might be crappy indoor pictures on a mannequin but hey, baby 2 is due any day now, you all understand 🙂
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time but always hesitated because this is supposed to be a sewing blog. But it’s my blog and in the end I decide what gets published. I consider you all to be my friends, I’ve never related to anyone as much as to my fellow sewcialists and I’ve never felt less judged by a community. So I at last feel comfortable sharing what’s going on in my life. It all started after the baby was born about 14 months ago (time flies). Because we were still renovating the house I … Continue reading Sometimes life gets you.
