    I just started reading your blog this semester and I’m so inspired to start sewing!! Thanks so much for your effort with your blog. Reading it really makes my day!

    (P.S. I hope this isn’t too intrusive but I know you’ve mentioned having a baby. My mother is an acupuncturist and she has a lot of patients with fertility problems and it’s been known to be extremely helpful)
