Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Kim. I love to sew and knit. I’ve been thinking for a while now that I would like to start a blog to keep track of my sewing endeavors. I’ve been a stay at home mom for seven years now, and over that time a lot in my life has changed. Parts of me have taken a back seat to bend with the flow of motherhood, of being a wife and general manager of this here little family. I am blogging to keep track of the projects that I make and the things I have been doing to reignite those parts of myself, especially creatively.
The evenings are when the magic starts for me. I have a space in my house that I like to refer to as the ‘Late Night Stitchery’, which is where I sew. Most nights after the kids are cozy and tucked into bed, I make a cup of tea and head downstairs. I have been sewing since I was about eight years old and am passionate about it. Since having kids I have mastered the art of being ‘efficient’ with sewing. Fabric and patterns get cut out long before I get a chance to sew with them, so when I can get downstairs the actual sewing can begin. My favorite type of sewing is garment sewing as I love clothing that actually fits! I long for days of eras past, where clothing was well made and tailored to fit (think Downton Abbey or Outlander…best.clothing.ever.!!). I hope someday to have a completely handmade wardrobe.
Please feel free to follow along!
Another first for me today (besides this here little blog post)…Here is a shot of my very long driveway, after having used the snow blower to clear the entire thing all by myself. Super proud and empowered!
