Baking, Sewing

One Year of Blogging + An Announcement

September 17, 2012

One year ago today I published my first post. I’ve never been great at keeping diaries, I’d start with great intentions but most wouldn’t last more than a few days. I’ve loved keeping this blog going though. I’ve met some amazing people, both online and in person, all of whom have been so supportive and friendly. Thank you to everyone has visited or left a comment. It’s been a fantastic year and there’s no chance of me stopping soon as I’m constantly adding to the long list of things I want to make. I’ve got these two little boys inspiring me every day.

There have been a lot more sewing posts this year than I originally expected as I’ve come to love it as much as baking. Which leads me to an exciting announcement. I’m hosting my first series here, called ‘Sew Yummy’, starting on the 24th of September and running for 3 weeks. I thought it would be fun to combine my two favourite hobbies so challenged some of my favourite bloggers to either bake something inspired by sewing or sew something inspired by baking. I’ll have more details soon but for now, check out my first button.

      Oooh, ‘fabric and food’ would have been a good name for the series. Cheers Inder.
