#BLOGLIKECRAZY 17: WHY SHE SEWS & WHY SHE BLOGS ABOUT IT (part 2)...

...short or long, you know I love a blog series and  have posted a few here.  So as a continuation of yesterday's post I reached out to several people who "SEW & BLOG ABOUT IT" and asked them for help in this series.  As I've mentioned before, the sewing community is so very sharing.

I won't even dare say just how many blogs I frequent; but there are quite a few.  Really, looking in and reading other sewing blogs adds to my knowledge bank, and gives me lots and lots of sewing inspiration.  It seems that I am always find new ones, and it is so nice and refreshing to get new points of views about this craft.

Have you ever seen a CAT IN A WARDROBE?  Well, if not, you are in for a treat!  Ever time I visit Eli there I get visions of Yoshino Cherry Blossoms dancing in my head!  She is so talented, and her garments are crafted works of art.  Here she tells you why she SEWS & BLOGS ABOUT IT...



Why do you sew?
I really love creating things with my own hands! I enjoy sewing, knitting, and making jewelry. Concentrating to make something is fun, and lets me meditate and heal my mind.

Why do you blog about it?
I want to improve both my sewing and English skills. However, I prefer to interact with people through my blog rather than improving those skills.

Please drop in to visit Eli at CATWARDROBE,  and and make sure you check out that fabulous Isaac Mizrahi plaid coat she made last winter; and the beautiful sleeves on the coat she's already made this year. It really made me swoon...
