A little note

After a very stressful year cumulating in a weekend in September I decided to stop blogging, and made the announcement to do so. I was overwhelmed and very, very touched by all comments on the fact that I was leaving blogosphere. Simply never knew that so many of you enjoyed reading my blog. Thank you for that.

What I didn’t realize at the time, was how much I would be missing blogging. Not the actual writing a post, but the talking about sewing. As I’ve written more than once, there is no one sewing in my circle of family or friends. So who to share the joy or frustration on sewing projects with? Who to tell about the beautiful patterns I found in a Patrones issue, new fabrics acquiered, plans I’m making etcetera.

I thought the missing feeling would pass, but no. There is an itch to go back to talking on sewing on my blog to share the experiences. Won’t bother you again with stopping or stress messages. I’ll be posting again, regularly if I have time and feel like it, not so often if I’m not in the mood or not sewing.

To start with a very inspiring blouse from Patrones 284. It’s a plus size pattern so I’ll have to find another pattern to work with (really don’t think the model is plus size though). It’s not my next project, but I love it.

Beautiful blouse.
So nice to see you are back :))))
That's what I do. If I can blog and have something to blog about I do, if not then I don't. No stress :) and I love reading other sewing blogs.

Daisy said...

Post when and if you have the time and inclination. We all love your posts! The Patrones blouse is beautiful.

JoanneM said...

I'm sooooo glad that you are back! I think anyone that blogs with any regularity hits a wall from time to time and we need to step back from our blogs for a minute. But the camardarie, the ability to share something I love with like-minded others and to read others thoughts on the matter keep me blogging. As I said before I'm glad you're back and blog whenever the mood strikes you. I will be here to read about it because I love what you make and learning about your process!

A nice blouse to start again. I'm glad your back. Best wishes.

Ik ben echt blij dat U weer terug bent. Het is een goede beslissing: U heeft gezien dat veel mensen over de hele wereld Uw blog waarderen. Ik in het bijzonder, omdat ik veel zaken leer van Uw blog en zie dat we samen bezig zijn met dezelfde soort dingen te naaien!
Veel succes met Uw projecten.

M.v.g,
Ruta

Welcome back! Love that blouse!

Jamie said...

I am new to sewing and blogging so I wasn't around when you left, but I am so happy to hear that you are back. I read about your sewing adventures on your blog and was always disappointed that I wasn't around when you were actively blogging. Welcome back!!!

Oh I was just thinking about you today and so glad you have come back. I totally understand the feeling of having too many responsibilities.

I am so pleased that blogging is also a pleasure for you and you missed it (ie, you missed us!)
Welcome back Sigrid.

Ruby said...

jippie !!

welkom terug
groetjes
Ruby

Welcome back - I'm glad you changed your mind. Your posts and tutorials have been so helpful.

Anne LO said...

Weeeelcome back!

Peg in South Carolina said...

I understand. I publish a blog on weaving and from time to time have thought about not doing it, but realized the blogging actually has more value for me than the readers and besides, I really do like to write. So, like you, guess I'm hooked!

Vicki said...

Yippee!! Just even show and tell is fun. You have done your share of tutorials so don't feel guilty for not having time for those :)

mochimo said...

Dawn said...

Yeah! You're back! I love your blog.

Miriam in KS said...

Yay! I am so glad you've changed your mind. I have been sewing for 40 years and still learn something new when I come to read your blog.

Welcome Back!

katherine h said...

I actually had been thinking about you lately...wondering how you were getting on, because I also find blogging very time consuming but I don't think I could give it up, as I also don't have any friends nearby that sew. I hope you find a way to make it work for you this time, as we love seeing what you sew.

Lilian said...

Ben heel blij dat je weer terug bent. Ik ben zelf net met bloggen begonnen en ik moet zeggen, het is verslávend. Maar inderdaad, het leeft bijna niet in Nederland dus ik ben ook maar in het Engels begonnen. Heel veel plezier weer met bloggen en ik ga je nú (weer) bij mijn favoriete sites zetten.

senaSews said...

Welcome back! I'm glad that you decided to return and share your sewing with us!

Summerset said...

Happy to see you back! I'm looking forward to seeing what you make - in your own good time, whenever you have a moment.

Mary Beth said...

Whatever works for you! Even though I've "seen" you in other places over the past 7 weeks it's nice to see you here. It's the enthusiasm for sharing a project that makes it special.

Anonymous said...

So glad you are back! I have to admit that I would visit your blog once a day to see if you had had a change of heart. I am glad you did. Welcome back and I am happy.

Nancy K said...

Love the jacket and you already know that I'm thrilled that you're back.
Every time I go down my blog bookmarks I couldn't bring myself to delete yours. Obviously there was a good reason for it! Welcome back.
I keep waiting for Patrones 284 to show up on Stoff art. Thats a very pretty blouse. You're right you'll have to use another pattern as a base. The Patrones plus sized are not like Burda, they take a big jump from the last regular size to the first plus, as I'm sure you've realized.

cidell said...

Yay :) Welcome back.

Sigrid, I'm so glad you're going to be blogging when the mood strikes you. That's the way it should be--stress free and enjoyable.

She's back. Hooray! Take from it what you want. That's the whole point! Looking forward to your posts.

I hadn't checked in a while, but I'm glad I did... you're back! Yeah!
