I officially created this blog on May 22, 2009 but felt stumped- how do I possibly begin writing a blog? Should I? Surely only self-obsessed navel-gazers write blogs, right?
Then last January 23 I stridently spewed forth my opinions on sewing and style through 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World and haven’t stopped. This blog began as my attempt to find a way to write every few days- writing anything.
Since then I’ve learned more than I imagined possible and find my life enriched in unexpected ways by the input of our lovely community. Before last January I felt isolated, cranky (which only served to increase my isolation as I drove people away), and relied far too heavily on my husband as a sounding board for many of the very things I post about here. I’m inspired by the work of other bloggers, especially those who find themselves outsiders in a new country and turn to sewing as a way to deal. I get that.
Thank you- thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, thanks for listening. Thank you for allowing me to pillage your blogs for inspiration. I’m happier now that I have this outlet, and look forward to many more posts and watching what others create.
