The Beginning

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while now. I feel like I do enough interesting things to warrant people wanting to read about me- I quilt, I travel, I cook, I play Quidditch, and I'm only in my early 20's. I've got YEARS of adventures ahead of me, and I want to share them.

I've started reading lots of quilting blogs lately, because I want to improve my quilting skills and really get into sewing more. However, I realized that the target demographic seems to be a little.... not me. These women are either in their early/mid 30's with small children, or older women with grandkids and a surprisingly good knowledge about computers and the internet (I jest, I just know my grandmother has NO idea what a blog is). 

There are young people like me out there who picked up crafting at the feet of their mothers and grandmothers, and are just starting to hone their talents. And I'd love to get in touch with them- talk about things we've made, how expensive fabric is on a college student's budget, different foods we've fixed on the cheap, and what we want to do with our lives.

So here we are. I'm here, and I'm going to talk about all of these things and more. So come along for the ride!

  1. Hi! I just found your blog through the Gen X Quilters blog :) I'm in a similar situation- College student (though I'm graduating in 2 weeks), no kids, no money, but I love to sew and crochet and MAKE ALL THE THINGS. I just wish I went to a school with a Quidditch team ;)

    Anyway. I subscribed to your blog via Google Reader. It's nice to know there's someone else out there of a similar mindset!
