Sometimes there are just too many options.
I like to sew and, for a while, I’ve been thinking of blogging as I work through my stack of sewing projects. I even started a new blog, but now, after contemplating my many other responsibilities including a husband, six children, homeschooling, home-keeping, the actual sewing, this blog, and a large writing project (just to name the most important), I’m not sure I can keep up with another separate blog.
My solution – for now – is to create a special post category for all my posts on sewing.
I stewed for a while trying to find just the right name. Quite frankly, I agonized over it as I would one of my babies.
My first thought was Sewing for Dummies since I feel like a dummy sometimes when I sew, but I know that you are not a dummy, and I didn’t want you to think that I thought you were.
My second thought was Simple Sewing. I can’t do anything complicated – the thought of a zipper gives me the heebie-jeebies – so I knew I wanted to stay simple. I didn’t think you would have time for complicated either. And there are plenty of other websites and blogs where you can find help with quilting or tailoring or making your own buttons.
My third thought was Sew What. As in, so what in the world am I going to post? I was afraid, though, that some readers might perceive that title to have the attitude of I-don’t-care.
Sew So, I crossed that one off my list.
I really liked A-hem, but, although I obviously would like readers / followers / groupies (wouldn’t you?), I didn’t want to sound ego-centric.
Then, I heard that whisper. You know – the one that gives you goosebumps. The Creator of the Universe.
Faith is a big part of my life, as it might be in yours, so I thought that should figure in to the blog as well. Thus, my hope is that the title, Sewing Seeds, will convey to you – a-hem – my desire to use my simple sewing to sew what will provide for my family, exercise my
dummy creative muscles, save a little money, and teach my daughters
to sew. We might also explore a little about God and how He works in our lives.
So now, when you see a post title of Sewing Seeds, you’ll know what it’s about. (And the other blog is there whenever I might need it.)
Do you sew? What project are you working on now?
