In case you skipped the little introduction on the front page....let's start from the beginning:
My name is Mie (like Mia but with an e - I know you will be wondering :-)I'm 35 years old, Danish and I live with my British husband Alex and two girls Wilma (4) and Evelyn (2) in Raleigh, North Carolina. I am a stay-at-home Mom and my husband is an engineer and consultant....yes, very classical....Mommy stays home with the kids and starts a blog and husband brings home the bacon. But it works for us and I love it!
I also love, love, LOVE to sew and my education as a seamstress kind of comes in handy here :-)
Before I had children and moved to America in 2008 I had a small women's apparel company in Denmark. The combination of working 14 hours a day and not making any money did not seem so attractive though when I became pregnant with our first child so I closed it down.
But I learned a lot of things - good and bad - and I would love to share it with you along the way!
I love sewing for my kids for a lot of reasons.
It's faster, you don't need so much fabric (aka less planning), there is less (or none) fittings AND they definitely look cuter in photos than I do ;-)
In this blog I'm (hopefully) going to give you inspiration for things to sew, make tutorials and share the knowledge I have learned during my education and along the way working for myself and others. And last but not least communicate with you readers! I would love to hear your comments or questions and I will try to answer as good as I can.
As you already know English is not my first language so please forgive me for spelling mistakes or wrong grammar. I will do my very best to make it as correct as possible and please don't hesitate to ask if something does not make sense at all!
|This is me|
This is Wilma and Evelyn - also known as 'The Monkeys'. And no we don't live 100% organic in this household :-)
