I am a sewist - not seamstress, mind you. I started sewing as a child but I picked it up again with full force after my own daughter was born. She was colicky and I was going crazy. I needed an outlet and after I figured that baking was not a hobby conducive to random abandonment at the whims of a newborn, sewing was next up. Now, months later, I have a beautiful and happy child who is full of life and whom I love to dress in my creations.
