I have read many end of year posts. I enjoy reading them, but don't feel up to creating one myself and somehow that makes me feel guilty, like I am cheating. Makes me question why I blog. I need to give more in this give and take community. I do not blog to make money nor in search of a career. In honesty, it is the connection I crave, and the validation from others with the same passion as mine. I do it, to document what I sew. If others read it and find it useful, that is a bonus for me. When I have a comment, it brightens my day. I truly enjoy reading the documented sewing of others. Especially those who do it purely for the sewing experience. Not those who write to entertain, but rather those who blog what they do, because they want to. To share. To brag. To remind themselves of what they have done. They capture my attention and admiration. I appreciate them all for sharing. When I see one that I really like, start to become commercialized, it actually saddens me and then I tend to move on. Makes me feel like I have lost an honest look into their passion. That may sound selfish, but it is the truth. My look back on this year has much sewing. I have created things I love to wear My Minoru jacket and things I never wear NL 6407 dress aka ill fitting house dress I hope to fill 2015 with sewing more of the former. I want to thank all of you that read and commented on my journey this year. I love the connection and validation of others with the same passion. I look forward to seeing what both you and I create in 2015.
