For this past 4 years, for as long as I've been blogging,
this blog was about sewing (mainly) kids clothes.
I often get the question why I don't sew for myself more.
I always answer that I like sewing for children better.
Truth is, I am never happy about the way I look in the things I sew for myself.
Truth is, I'm never happy about the way I look...
Over a year ago I blogged this post about turning forty.
At the time I assumed that becoming very self-conscious about ones flaws was part of the whole proces.
The strange thing was that I kinda was okay with the age thing really.
So I started thinking that the things I've been struggling with had nothing to do with getting older at all!
I began to realize that the reason why I don't like sewing for myself
is the same reason why I'm always the one that isn't in any of the pictures at party's...
I just don't like the way I look!
All of these pictures are about things that I've sewn for myself this past few years.
They never made it to the blog because I didn't think they were worth a second look,
so I didn't think anyone would find them interesting enough.
Now that I'm forty-one I decided: NO MORE!
This year this blog will be all about looking at myself!
From every possible angle!!!
...and also still a lot about sewing kids clothes and stuff ;-)
PS: I also decided this blog will be in English this year, see if I can...
