Hi! I'm Maria. An engineer by day who loves to sew, crochet, embroider and create in general in my free time.
I haven't really had any education or training in the things I do, just pure basics that I picked up from school or mom, the only thing I was taught to do was cross-stitching by my grandmother. But with a bit of free time and boredom I started thinking...maybe I should try crocheting! Bought myself a book, some yarn and tried things out. Sewing? bought a pattern, some fabric and got going on an inherited sewing machine and now I'm about to venture into knitting too.
What I'm trying to say here is that interest, patience and Google goes a long way so if you're interested in learning something new just go for it.
What I'm trying to offer is inspiration to create and refashion by sharing my projects and makes with you, share what I do to change a detail I don't like here or spice up something there hopefully encouraging you to improvise too. I'm no expert by any means, I just try things out, sometime it works, sometimes it doesn't...In both cases I learn something from the experience. And if I can do it, so can you!
Now this blog is not new, it actually celebrated it's 11th birthday this month! For a long time it was a travel blog as I used to travel A LOT! So I still post impressions from my now far between travels to new places every now and then 😊.
I hope you like it, and hope you come back for more, and maybe even follow me 😉
