KarenV and I have been having a discussion about starting up a “Finishing Blog” – and I’ve purloined Karen’s text from her own post as I couldn’t write it any better if I tried … so here goes:
“(We) have decided to go ahead with the idea of a finishing blog, along the lines of what Becky was hoping to do with the finishing BB, where we could keep a master list of useful links to tutorials, where people can ask questions about a particular finishing technique, where we can have monthly SALs or lessons on a specific technique and where people can share their finishing tips, pictures, skills etc. with each other.
So, if you think a blog dedicated to finishing techniques is a good idea and you think you’d want to participate, please leave a comment below, so that we can gauge whether it’s worth setting one up.
Note: we’d be hosting it on WordPress, not Blogger so you’d have to register with WP before being able to post to the blog, but it’s a quick and easy process and you wouldn’t have to set up your own WordPress blog.”
Please feel free to leave a comment either here or under the original post by KarenV (click on the link, and it’ll take you straight to the original post). Also, let us know if you have any other suggestions as to what you’d like to see included, other than the ideas we’ve already come up with 🙂
Personally I really want to increase my skills in the finishing department – I look at my finishing pile and cringe with fear when I think about getting the sewing machine etc out … there are some wonderful finishing techniques out there that I really want to try out, and I think it will build my confidence no end to do some finishing on a regular basis – as they say, “practice makes perfect”! I’m often amazed when I do actually finish something, how easy it actually was … but I just had to ‘get started’ 🙂 I for one am really looking forward to getting this underway 😀
