Hello! I’m Lynne. I’m a mom, wife, software engineer, and sewing enthusiast. I’m also a huge Earth Wind and Fire fan! I’m happy to participate on this blog and I hope that I can bring my own form of crazy to this website. I love most anything you can do with a sewing machine: garment sewing, quilting, bag-making (both chicken and traditional), and sometimes some soft toy making. I don’t like sewing curtains, upholstering furniture, or mending. I even have a hard time sewing for my own beloved hubby, but have been known to do so. I’ve also started sewing Cosplay for my anime-crazed daughter. So I suppose that means I do like to sew costumes as well.
I have other hobbies as well – I like fish and fish tanks, jigsaw puzzles, and occasionally cooking. But for the most part, I sew in my spare time. I like making clothes that I can wear the next day (or the same day). I’m a bit impatient, so I don’t like doing a lot of fitting and I sew with a lot of stretchy knits. It’s also a rare thing for me to complete a quilt, but I like piecing so I practice piecing and quilting on tote bags. My sewing approach may be a little unrefined, but it is something I enjoy immensely!
