Self-Stitched September

Hello, blog world! While I do love to read a few blogs on occasion, this is my first venture into writing one myself (aside from a short-lived blog I wrote with Rach H. about the joys of unemployment...but then we both got jobs, so the demise of that blog was something to celebrate!).

My inspiration for beginning this blog came from So Zo. She called for all the internet seamstresses out there to participate with her in Self-Stitched September. Last night, I took the following pledge:

"I, Val of threadsthoughtsthings.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear one handmade or refashioned item of clothing or accessory every day for the duration of September 2010."

Because I don't want to only post about my outfits for the day (although I will be doing that too), I'll also share some of my thoughts and things I love, along with my threads (hence the name of this blog! Get it?).

And so, heeeeeere we go!
