TACKLING THE STASH + FREE FABRIC

7.13.2012

Since we have a big move to NYC coming up soon I thought that today I better finally tackle the fabric stash that has been accumulating for the past, hmmm, ten plus years.  I am proud to say that this morning the stash looked like this:



And now it looks like this :



That being said I need to get rid of these other two bins of fabric and scraps.  If anyone lives in the Chicagoland area and would like them (for free) send me an email and we can set up a time for you to get it.  I also have  a lot of patterns that I will be giving away too.  There are a few baby patterns, but most of them are women's 6-14.  If no one takes them I will just be dropping them off at a thrift store.

MIA AND QUESTION

7.11.2012

Wow, it has been so long since I posted.  I don't have any real excuses except that this summer has kicked me in the butt.  Between my husband's graduation, family in town, family living with us, finding an apartment, and getting ready to move to NYC, I feel like I can barely think.  I actually have been sewing, I just havn't gotten around to posting anything.  Sometimes I feel guilty, but then I have to tell myself, this is my blog, I don't have deadlines, I don't get paid for this, all I can do is what I can do - and then I feel better.

QUESTION:
With all of the excuses out of the way, I have a question for you all.  You see I have heard a few horror stories about people's identities or blogs being stolen, or really rude comments.  As a result I have avoided ever posting any pics of my 2 year old daughter on the blog.  But then I also see a lot of great bloggers who post about their families and I love it.  I feel like it personalizes a blog.  I would love to take snapshots on our trips and add a little bit more familiarity and allow you to see more of who I am and what we do.  More of our creative life, not just sewing projects.  I mean, I am a stay at home mom, so the majority of what I do is with my daughter.  So here is the dilemma, do I allow pictures of my daughter on the blog and add a bit more of me, or do I keep it strictly business?

What do you guys think?  What is your moral compass when it comes to blogging about your family?
