Aloitushöpinöitä - To Start Things Off

Aivan ensimmäiseksi mainittakoon, että tämä ei ole ensimmäinen blogini. Aikaisempi unohtui kolmen tekstin jälkeen. Jää nähtäväksi kuinka tämän käy. Harrastan ompelemista. Joidenkin mielestä olen seonnut. Ehkä. Mutta ainakin minulla on hauskaa. Koska englanniksi kirjoittaminen on minulle kovin luontevaa (jollain kangasostokset täytyy rahoittaa, itse teen sen opettamalla englantia), kirjoitan blogiini myös englanniksi


First off, this is not my first blog and this is very likely to meet same fate as my previous one and become forgotten after three posts.  My hobby is sewing. Some people think I've gone off my rocker. I have been quite prolific for the past summer so maybe I have. I fund my sewing habit (which leads to a fabric buying habit) by teaching English. I feel much more comfortable writing in English so that will most likely be the main language of this blog.

I started sewing when I was eight years old and I have loved it ever since. My mother has always sewed so I've grown up with a sewing machine in the house. For the past few years, I've taken out my machine for a few special project every couple of months or so. Things changed when moving gave me a proper sewing space where I could leave my machine out instead of packing it away once I was done. Then summer came and I had all this free time on my hands and I chose to spend it on sewing. A week into my summer holiday, I bought an overlocker and I haven't looked back. I even started work again a couple of weeks ago and though I have slowed down a bit (and knitted a bit too), I still somehow find myself sitting in front of my sewing machines.

I will start posting about the things I've made once I feel like it. Until then, sew on!
