Today is my day on the Let's Get Acquainted New Blogger Blog Hop 2013. I would like to start by thanking Beth at Plum and June for hosting the Blog Hop and for giving me the chance to join. It's an incredible way to meet new bloggers and learn from their experience too.
Why did you start your blog and where did your blog name come from?
Ella (my daughter) and I (Nesta) started our blog in a "Little Room" in 2010 as a diary of our craft projects. Only this year did I become particularly curious about the on line craft community and blogging. The blog has passed from just a diary to a way of setting myself goals and getting projects finished, meeting people with the same interests and learning, learning, learning. Sewing and blogging is also very therapeutic!
I started quilting three years ago thanks to a patchwork course at a local shop. I enjoyed the course so much I decided to buy myself a really cheap supermarket sewing machine. I am sure I spent more time trying to fix the thread on the machine and unstitching things that the machine had messed up than making anything, but I didn't give up. After a year, still in love with sewing and quilting, I decided it was time to get a real sewing machine (which was actually a wonderful present!).
What is your favourite type of project?
The time I'm left over with, after my job in maintenance of public buildings, maintenance of the household and playing with my two wonderful daughters, is dedicated to sewing. At the moment small scale projects are on my to do list. I'm really enjoying the the Zakka Along 2.0:: Patchwork, Please! sew along.
