Life of Johanna

So what has been going on lately?

Pretty much exactly 3 years ago I stopped blogging.
So what happened? Well the causing factor was that I fell hard when I was participating in a 12-hour roller skate relay (while not wearing a wrist guard, silly me). I broke my right wrist quite badly and for several months I could not write, take photos or sew. When I finally healed I had kinda lost the blogging mojo and couldn’t find it again. Then I switched careers and started working in a another field, I used to be a journalist and now I work as communication officer. A switch that required a lot of adjustment energy. So basically stuff happened and I fell out of the loop.
The good news is that I have kept on sewing – a lot. I must have amassed over 40 garments the last few years. And I plan to share many of those in this blog now. I have imposed on myself a pretty strict clothes and fabrics buying ban, so the focus has been sewing through my stash. And even though I have made several dozens of garments, by the look of it, I have barely made a dent in my huge stash. Oh well.
 Anyways the blog lust has been simmering for a while now. And now I have finally have gotten my act together and sorted out a new blog design and luckily for me, my 13 year old daughter has evolved quite an eye for photography, so for the first time ever I do not have to rely solely on a tripod and remote self timer for my outfit pics. It will be a nice change.

    Welcome back, I wondered about you. Glad to hear that the new career suits you well, it is quite an adjustment so I understand.

    Can't wait to see what you've been sewing.
