Scientific Sewing – An Introduction

A bit about myself…
I am Kristy, a 29 year old biologist with a passion for sewing. I live in Sheffield with my amazing boyfriend and originally from Leeds (I am trying to find a job to enable me to move back). As I am getting older (the big three zero looming ever closer) I am finding that I want to go out partying much less than I did even though I do enjoy a nice cold one every now and then.
A few  facts about me:
·         I am desperate to be a dog owner; I want a big fluffy cuddly dog. Unfortunately I am in rented accommodation and working full time, it is just not fair to have one at the moment. I have even offered to do my boyfriend’s ironing for a full year if he buys me a puppy but it’s not to be…yet.
·         I love Elvis. A bit too much.
·         I am not happy unless I have a holiday booked.
·         I love summer but the summer hates me – ginger moley skin and really bad hayfever means going outside in summer isn’t actually that fun.
·         I love Pinterest - follow me here

Me and sewing so far…
I got a sewing machine roughly 5 years ago from my sorely missed, gorgeous Grandma but it lived in the box scaring me for two years until I took a sewing class at The Bowery about 3 years ago and loved it. My passion for sewing so far has been limited to crafty things; I have made quilts, wall art and kids clothes for my gorgeous nieces. Even though I have amassed quite a collection of clothing patterns for myself (see pinterest) I have not actually started making anything for myself as of yet. And there is a reason for it. Here goes, the personal bit: I am not happy with my body shape and haven’t been for quite a while and the will power around the cakes/pies is not the strongest – I just love food! In high street clothes I am a size 16 and I am pretty top heavy, with a real apple shape. I want to look at sewing as a way to dress comfortable, learning a craft I really enjoy and celebrating the outcome of working hard at something rather than looking at the size of the dress or the measurement on the tape measure. And this is where this blog comes in…

The aim is to blog my makes, my mistakes and my learning outcomes. I am not the most creative of people and certainly not the best at writing so I want to stick to a style of writing I am comfortable with – scientific report writing. Hopefully each entry will follow a set style; introduction, methods, results and discussion. I currently follow (according to Bloglovin) 137 blogs, I love reading everyones posts and enjoy learning new things and seeing how creative people are, Bloglovin is my favourite app and it gets read a few times a day so want to add my little input to help me and my sewing, hopefully I will meet some new friends along the way too.

Materials and Methods
Nothing much to cover here this time.

Again, nothing to be seen here, keep moving.

I think that is enough from me for a first timer. I hope I have covered everything for a first timer and not put you off of reading more from me. Fingers crossed I keep up to this blog and my sewing.

EDIT - sorry, I need to add this part so I can be added to Bloglovin apparently!
