I have been thinking for a while of splitting the blog between my main two interests – sewing/crafting and writing – but I’ve been unsure about it for a number of reasons and with my PGCE, I haven’t had a great deal of time to think about it or implement any decisions I did make.
My PGCE course has finished (Wewt! What a weight has been lifted!) and I
(a) have more time (huzzah!),
(b) have only a part-time income at the moment (boo!), so …
(c) am getting more serious about my sewing/making life,
(d) am getting back into writing A Thief and a Gentlewoman! (Yeah, bet you’d forgotten about that one! Rest assured, I have been thinking about it, in between the essays on Pedagogy vs Andragogy and Humanism vs Instrumentalism and the like!)
So, in order to do justice to the two areas I blog about, I am dividing the blog. Jane of All Trades, here, will remain my blog for all things relating to books, writing and research relating to A Thief and a Gentlewoman, and now I am able to actually work on T&Gw, I hope to actually post about such things around once a week (once a fortnight at the very least).
Posts about my sewing-related escapades will now be at my new blog, Magpie Makes. I really hope you like it there, I spent quite a while wrestling with Illustrator, Photoshop and Blogger to get the layout and design juuuuust right for you all!
I’m really looking forward to being able to get some renewed direction here at Jane of All Trades and seeing all your stitchy-types over at Magpie Makes for more sewing, my attempts at learning to knit (be prepared for laughs at how that goes!) and that apron giveaway I mentioned the other day.
