Welcome to Wedding Whichever Day! Sure, it was Wedding Wednesday, but when you have a blog post half written for weeks and keep missing Wednesday, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Ya know how I’m the Sometimes Sewist? I know it seems more like I am the All-The-Time Sewist, but there are a few other crafts that I enjoy and have told myself I’m good at. ;) I attribute my sewing bias to the fact that most clothes are much quicker and thus more gratifying for me to make these days than say, knitting a sweater or making a stained glass sun catcher (I do love me some solder, though).
Like everything in life, my crafting has gone through seasons, but my first real love was sewing, so it’s only appropriate that I have returned to it pretty much full-crafting-time. My mom finally let me try her sewing machine when I was 12 or 13, since she was convinced I would sew through my fingers (which I have not done to this day; hurrah! *knock on wood*).
My second love is knitting, which was my primary craft for a few years after college. I particularly love knitting socks and lace (mostly shawls).
My third love? (Yeesh, such a hussy!) Well, my third love never fully bloomed past infatuation, but I still dabble it in from time to time because I enjoy the end product: cold process soaping. AKA real soap. Made with lye and oils (and love).
