No, I have not stopped sewing.
It's just that, I have made some clothes but I was a bit too shy to show them to you until now. I guess I was intimidated in some way.
Maybe because I often use those old patterns which you don't have accesses for any more. Or maybe because I always use the patterns which have only Japanese instructions. Or maybe because I show you the results but never tell you how I made them. I thought as if I needed more usefulness in my posts.
Well... sounds very silly though.
So I waited for something useful that I could provide in my blog posts for some time, but nothing arrived in the end (oops). I concluded and consoled myself with thinking that's how the most weblogs are primarily and I should be relaxed about it anyway.
I hope some of you can find a bit of inspiration for your sewing plan from my recent sewing projects here. Happy sewing!!
