YAY! I'm back! I'm finally starting to feel like myself again (thank goodness!) and am back at the machine....kind of! With my new job and working nights again, I'm having a bit of a rough time adjusting, so I haven't been sewing as much as I'd like to, but I have a lot of plans for this year. I'm trying to make a list of what I want to accomplish in the year 2014, and that is pretty hard to do, especially since I want to be as realistic as possible. So, I'm still working on that list for you guys...I've got one made, but I need to make a few edits! It's coming though, I promise!
I also am needing some advice from you all...it's at the bottom of this post!
I've started a new Scrappy Trip quilt, this one is going to be for me though! I love how easy it is, and how quick the blocks come together...I'm planning on making this one queen size which will be the biggest quilt I've made EVER! I'm really excited about the final quilt! I think it's going to be really pretty with all the colors and I'm going to use a low volume print down the center of each block...I can't wait to finish it!!!!
I'm also working on finishing up a mini quilt for my Sew Sew Modern 4 partner! I love these mini swoon blocks!!! I think this one is going to be hard to give away! I'll post better pictures once I get it finished!
But the main reason for me writing this post is I need some serious advice from you. I've been doing A LOT of thinking about where I want to go with my sewing and quilting....I've got high hopes, but I'm also trying to realistic with my goals too. But, I'm really seriously thinking about starting up a YouTube channel. I've got quite a few ideas for videos already (like 2 complete pages worth)!
Let me tell you what I'm thinking...
I remember when I was trying to learn/teach myself to sew and quilt what kind of things I would look up on google or youtube and not being very successful at finding some of those things or if I did find them, it wasn't exactly what I would call "helpful". So, I was thinking, why not share what I've learned along my path? So kind of like a channel dedicated to mostly learning to sew and quilt and the different things you can make out of stuff...I hope that makes sense. I'm not saying it will be entirely just about sewing since there are other things I enjoy doing too. But, I really love to teach people about my passion and I can't really think of a better way to do that than through YouTube! I know that I am going to be putting myself out there and I'm positive I will be ridiculed and all that stuff that mean people out there like to do, but if I can help at least ONE person then I'd be happy!
So what do you guys think? Of course, with every video I upload there will be a blog post to go along with it. But I really want to know what you guys think! Would you watch my channel? Do you think it's a good idea? Do you think it's a bad idea? I really really really want your advice!!!!
So I hope you will take a minute and leave me a comment to let me know! Be honest!
I'll be back soon with some pretties to share!!!!
~Hope y'all are having a GREAT DAY!!!~
