There are so many awesome sewing blogs that I stalk regularly. I learn from them, get many ideas, and feel a sense of community. I hesitated doing my own blog for a while because I am such a beginner. Obviously, I changed my mind. There may be other beginners who can learn from my struggles and mistakes. Although I use purchased patterns, I do much of my work from Bernina's My Label Software program. I only know of one other blogger Robyn who uses this program although I'm sure there are others. My computer skills are not that great but I am learning. I will figure out how to make the "view from my window" smaller. Mostly, I started to feel like I did in high school when I wanted to join a sorority. I wanted to belong, but wasn't sure that I would be accepted. I'm a lot older now and there is no "rush" to start a blog. So, I'll just have to do the blog for my own record and encouragement -- I'm more likely to get things done if I have to "report". If others visit me and benefit, that will be the icing on the cake.
