Back on board now though and ready to get on into Blogtoberfest, again!
I decided this year not to beat myself up if I missed a day - it's about being involved, not killing yourself to post each day.
Today I wanted to share a few blogs I like to read, in the hope that you will do the same and maybe we will each find something new to read.
I love to read the blogs of fellow crafty friends of course, particularly Melbourne girls, and am fortunate through blogging to now be able to call a number of these ladies friends.
Lovely, kind, generous people with whom I enjoy spending time whenever the opportunity presents itself.
They motivate, inspire and challenge me to think outside the square.
Particularly Wendy and Lara, who apart from being all of the above, are two of the most genuinely lovely people you could meet.
Others that fall into this category are my "Out of town" friends Tan, Annie and Rachel, all very 'good eggs' as Jodie (another favourite) would say.
There are so many other lovely Melbourne bloggers that I can't list them all, but we have a wonderful crafty community here in Melbourne.
|Wendy indulging in her 'other' love - teaching art to kids in her studio, my kids on this occasion!!|
Sewaholic - despite not having made enough of the patterns I have, I love Tasia's patterns. And she just sounds so lovely - like someone you could easily be friends with!
Poppykettle - I often pop in to read Melanie's blog and enjoy the very detailed tailoring she has been doing at jacket course in the US - oh to be back in the days of being child-free with more disposable income to indulge in such lovely things as this!!
Lower your presser foot - Kristy makes a LOT of clothing and often tries new techniques in construction and gives lots of detail, which I love!
No Big Dill - Katy has been a favourite of mine for a while now - she blogs about sewing for her five girls and one son along with the occasional project in there for herself.
She has wonderful taste/style and I love the little quirky design elements she always includes in her projects.
Crafterhours - Always something on the go over here - lots of great ideas to be found as well as patterns, mostly for kids!
Skirt as top - also lots to be seen - for kids and adults alike.
So what about you - what do you read??
