The one where she decides to start a blog…

Yup, that’s right, a blog. “But Tara,” I hear you say, “no one reads blogs any more!” Well dear reader, maybe that’s true. But I still read them, and if I still read them then other people must still read them too, right? And if they don’t, well, this whole blogging idea was very much a spur of the moment idea, so this may well be the only post and my mum may well be the only person that reads it!

That said, hi! My name is Tara, a 30-something from sunny Brisbane in Australia.

I like sewing, drinking wine, drinking while I’m sewing, and making things in general. I’ve kind of always known how to sew I think – I remember winning a prize in home ec for my palazzo pants! Then came denim boob tubes and skirts made out of jeans for my friends, a Dr. Frank-N-Furter costume for a mateΒ at uni, and then when I moved to Australia I bought a tiny sewing machine from Spotlight and made my first quilt. Since then I’ve upgraded my machine, made a few more quilts, and a whole lot of other stuff in between. I decided to start this blog to record some of the things I’ve made in the past, and to document the stuff I’m planning to make from my incredibly long wish list.

So if you like reading about other people’s sewing antics, badly lit photos, and won’t get offended by a swear word or two, stick around!

See? Terribly lit!
See? I’m terrible at taking photos…

  1. I read blogs too! – it’s so good to read/see more detail than on my-still-favourite-forever Instagram. Looking forward to more info on your palazzo pants/denim boob tube sewing past. Welcome to blog-land.

  2. Hey there. I’ve started reading blogs about the extended family. I might as well start with yours too. Long time no see. πŸ™‚

  3. Yay Tara, great to read your very first blog post! Will look forward to many more! Instagram is great and all that, but I still love blogs…
