2019 Catch-up

It has been forever since I have posted on my blog.  Truth be told I have considered deleting it.  Can’t bring myself to at this point.  Instagram has been  holding much of my social media attention lately and there is only so many hours in a day.  You may meet me over there @sewlyricallyvintage.

Know this, I have been sewing!  Even attempted a small sewing “venture”.  I can’t say business because the way I was going about it was anything but business-like.  I purchased contact cards, had family and friends help me by soliciting funds for a mannequin and gravity feed iron.  Opened an Instagram account and posted photo after photo.  Oh, I even ordered a logo.

Er ah, business – not so much.  I’d say from end of summer 2017 until maybe that Spring when I threw up my hands I had maybe five orders.  And three of them were from the same woman, related to me in the faith, who wanted to assist me financially to stay in the full time ministry, bless her heart.  Oh, I had also put up an Etsy shop.  One lady ordered two skirts from me (the business was “SkirtingIt!”) and after I mailed them out I never heard from her again! ???  There was no review of my work placed on Etsy, no letter of dissatisfaction.  To this day I have not a clue.   Ghosting is a negative.

Pushing forward to positivity I will do better with remembering to post my latest projects. By means of my new hobby bullet journaling I’ll keep up with my blogging.

Thank you for sticking and staying.

    1. I think I’d like to post here at least monthly. Sewing a garment a month (at least) should be a good goal. 2019 I’m shooting for quality versus quantity. Therefore, hopefully I’ll be learning new skills moving forward for instance steel boning . . .ay yi yi. Gertie uses them a lot and I love vintage-inspired garments. 🙂

      Thank you so much for reading and even commenting.


    2. Great, Barbara,

      What is your name there also? As I know people are busy let me give you my name again @sewlyricallyvintage; hope to see you over there. Meanwhile, I plan on posting my projects at least monthly. When I consider all I have put into this blog I am not ready to simply delete it. 🙂

      Thank you for taking the time to stop, comment, and encourage.


I love it when you leave a reply!
