I received my first sewing machine on my 8th birthday. But my love affair with sewing only blossomed recently, when I discovered that, omigosh, yes, I could really make things (not just fix them!). The anticipation of a new project, the satisfaction of a finished piece of work ... ah, unbeatable. I also love to crochet, its great when the pattern comes together in the end (although for some reason I always get the gauge wrong, so my projects often turn out smaller than they ought to be, grr.)

A roomy little pink bag that I feel is perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch with your favourite book. A girl's got things to tote around, even on a lazy Sunday!

Re: The Money Man

Thanks for sharing your story. I can imagine the money part being a nightmare (I'm lousy at numbers too). It helps to have good advisors -- a network of people you can run to for help. A friend who opened her own company in the US mentioned tax time being the worst (although it subsequently becomes easier once you know what's required!) In addition to books, I would also check out blogs dedicated to the small-business owner. There are many people out there with the right info -- many of them in the crafting community -- and only too willing to help. One thing's for sure, you do have a lot of research ahead of you! I have similar aspirations, but having read your story, I think I need to do my homework first! I hope you'll continue to write about your journey. I wish you all the best!

Re: How to Crochet a Flower (Part 1)

Thank you so much for this great pattern! I love how it turned out. Mine doesn't look half as good as yours, but here's the link to it:
