Thinking about how to tackle this

Well I’m looking at lots of other people’s blogs and wondering what I should do next.  I have seen some lovely things and wonder what I am doing trying to put stuff up alongside of the incredible things I have seen others do.  I’m also struggling with how to do a blog with pictures which doesn’t cost anything ( more money for fabric!)  Well I think I will press on but I need to make a note of which patterns I use – it may be very difficult for people to identify the makes even with the pattern names as reference but you never know it may inspire some others to think about doing better than me or learn from my mistakes!  Currently my day revolves around YOU-tube blogs, reading blogs (usually seen on Facebook) and reading sewing magazines.  The new sewing quarter tv show which goes out on you tube (and freeview and website) fascinates me as well especially the dressmaking programmes (not so bothered about quilting as yet but never say never and not overly concerned about crafty makes although I have made a few – especially bags).  Really cross that there is no sewing bee on TV but happy to replay old episodes.  Unfortunately my old sky box went kaput and the charity sewing bee episodes are lost – they don’t seem to be available on other platforms so I can’t rewatch those unfortunately.
There are lots of things I can’t quite figure out how to do with this blog so the next thing I am going to attempt is to put up some pictures and descriptions- not sure if anyone will be interested but going to give it a go

Some pictures!

DSCF3341Well I really feel I should add some pictures of what I have made in the past.  Hopefully I can then start to blog in current time!  Having looked at all my makes I feel that I can comment a lot ….but should I?  Will this not just reveal that I don’t really learn from my mistakes or maybe it will put others off and not be very inspirational….decisions, decisions.  The blogs I look at are so good and so inspirational…there must be people like me out there!
