Connecting Through Your Comfort Zone

Connecting Through Your Comfort Zone

Finding another blogger you may really connect with gives you that warm fuzzy feeling. And finding one you connect with on two accounts is like finding gold! Really? Now what are the chances of me connecting with a fellow sewer/writer – yes, I said sewer – a person who sews. We both sew. It’s all there in My Backstory if you wish to take a peek.

Of course I don’t think he knew he was an author too until he realized he had written a novel for his About page. I know you are wondering. His? He? Is that correct? Yes it is. Guys can sew too. Why not? It’s an outlet to be proud of. Run on over to Fuzzy Embroidery Designs and meet Mark. Read his funny story of how and why he learned to sew.

Actually come to think of it I’ve got two sewer/writer friends now. My friend and fellow blogger Jackie is also a fashion designer and she has published a book – ‘Silk For The Feed Dogs’. Now that title caught me off guard and we just connected on every level! Do yourself a favor and check out Jackie Mallon. She’s a hoot!

By participating in Blogging101 these past two weeks I’ve run into some really great blogging sites and picked up a load of useful information. I’ve made new friends and acquired new neighbors in the process. My blog site has even taken on a new look and I’ve added a new feature all because of you!

Thanks for stopping by! 😉

  1. Oh yes, guys can sew and this one does. But not a lot now. I also weave. In my now reduced living space, not much room for a loom. Maybe after I move?

    Here in West Kootenays, is a large number of people of Doukhobor descent. One elderly Doukhobor lady used wind her warp, around her house.

    Finding men who sew, used to be confined to certain occupations like sailors, etc. A little like finding a woman who tinkers with a car. Another friend, fiddling with cars until she damaged here thumb. I used to have a man-friend who made nets. They’re out there, doing what they enjoy.


  2. The sewing skill is evident for you thread your words seamlessly. I always enjoy reading your posts, and this didn’t disappoint 🙂

  4. Your writing flows beautifully. I was drawn to read and not just skim, and in the process I found another friend who shares my comfort zone. I hope to see you around again and again as the Blogging 101 course progresses. My blog may be found at Thanks in advance for looking.
