Why hello there, I'm Tricia, of Made by Me Shared with You (or Leafy Treetop Spot). I'm so excited to be here at Mama Says Sew. I love Terra's blog, and love seeing everything that she comes up with. She has this really light and feminine style that I really love. I love to see what she makes for herself and her family.
I love sewing, and have been faithfully sewing since my oldest son was born three and half years ago. My blog is a place for me to showcase my projects, and share what I learn along the way. You'll find tutorials and projects for me (or you), and for my boys. You'll find apparel projects, teaching toy projects, and sewing technique tutorials.
When I first heard about Terra's Just Sew series, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it. Sewing has become a really special part of my life. It has become an escape for me as a mother, and allowed me to develop skills that I never knew that I had. I am a person that has a hard time sitting still when I know that there are things to be done. Sewing allows me to escape, while still feeling productive. I love having an end result, something to show for my effort and time spent (not wasted).
With sewing there is always something new to try, learn, and explore. Even if I sew the same thing over and over, I can use new materials, add special details, and make it one of a kind. I can spend hours and hours working on a pattern or sewing project, or I can spend 15 minutes and whip up a really quick and satisfying project for myself or loved one.
Thanks so much for having me Terra!
