My dear ladies, and the occasional gentleman:
The time has come for me to officially bid this blog adieu. When I first committed to blogging, I'd also just started sewing, and bringing those two things together was so exciting and fresh. I loved the new friends and the new adventures! Over time, I met some of you offline, found myself sewing and socializing more IRL than online, and that pendulum never really took a swing back the other direction.
Although sewing is now simply part of my identity, and I still sew quite a bit, there are so many other big pieces of my life that fall outside of sewing and making clothes that never felt like they had a place on this blog.
So, as we close the year, it feels like the right time for me to definitively close my commitment to clevergirl.org. I'll probably hang onto the domain name and keep the blog archived here on Blogger, but I don't plan to add new content to it in the future. It's possible that I will have another blog in the future, but it will be more reflective of my entire life and identity now, not just the sewing. I'll let you know.
In the meantime, I have so enjoyed getting to know you, and will keep visiting your blogs from time to time. I hope that you will stay connected in any way that feels right for you:
Twitter (waning profile... not sure I will keep this up forever, either)
It's been a fun ride! Thank you so much for reading, commenting, and always being willing to lend a sister a helping hand. I wish you all the best in 2013 and ever after! Happy New Year!!!
