I read so many blogs, and spend so much time on my flickr account...why not start a blog myself?
I have talked myself out of it many times -- I am busybusybusy, and my work (I'm an English professor) involves heaps of reading and writing...why take on additional, new, non-professional writing tasks? I love to make things: knitting kept me balanced during undergrad and grad school (each major paper was paired with a knitting project), and sewing and quilting keeps me sane now. I am a member of a great little quilting guild (the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild), but there's no denying that some of the most exciting work I've seen is online, and I find tremendous inspiration in the blogs of others.
So here I am!
I think my own bobbins may be enchanted: somehow piles of sewing has been done (note passive construction) in the past year, even as my little-and-not-so-little children have grown without neglect and my work-work has been progressing really well. So maybe some of the fairy magic that I talk and write and read about every day has worked its charm on my sewing machine. It sews and sews and sews and shows no sign of abating....
