hobbies and fans

I have always had more hobbies than time. I love to sew, paint, cook, bake, read, watch soaps, watch intellectual documentaries, and get my hands into just about anything besides housework. Once I picked up sewing again, my friends would see what I was making and egged me on to start selling. I thought they were sort of crazy...but I kept sewing.
Along the way, I've learned about "good fabric" and "good thread" and what makes patterns "work". My sweet, loyal friends kept telling me to sell what I make. I tried an etsy page but sort of chickened out...but I kept sewing.
I've been watching what other sewers have been doing to make a business from their hobby and in the meantime have set up a little page on facebook...and I've kept sewing. I love sewing for my own little people and am over joyed that I get the privledge to sew for someone else's sweet little ones. 
I am so thankful for friends who cheer me on crazy ventures and have spread that word. I am more than just a little blessed (and if you think I might just be talking about you, than you can be sure that I am!).
