I like making stuff and that's what this blog is all about! Food, sewing, gardening, other miscellaneous crap. And some of it is crap, but that's ok because this is all a learning process, right? Here's where I'm at right now:
I've been sewing for just over one year but still consider myself a newbie. Here are some home-sewn garments that receive high rotation in my pitiful but expanding wardrobe.
you can see more at burdastyle.
This year, I'm hoping to tackle something more advanced garments like boning or a jacket.
At the start of 2011 we (we = boyfriend, myself, and friends bribed with beer...) built a raised vegetable garden bed in our new apartment. By winter the soil was ready to go, but I didn't account for the sun changing its course in winter right behind the apartment block (d'oh!). This means we've had limited gardening options, but have been growing loads of greens like silver beet which I'm utilising for spanakopita, yum!
Bring on spring and its sunshine!
There's always loads of cooking, crafting, and drawing (or procrastinating from my honours thesis!) going on around here that I hope to document on this blog. It's a way to connect with other sewers, gardeners, or makers.
So, nice to meet you! And welcome to my little corner of the intergoogles.
