Thanks for coming by and visiting my blog! It’s good to be a part of Vicky’s event for the third annual Grow Your Blog event. Thanks for dropping by, reading my blog, commenting, and following!


My name is Naomi. I am a blogger, musician, teacher, mother, wife. I love to sew, knit, decorate, I play the organ and piano, I sing, I teach piano and voice in my local area. If you’d like to learn more about me and Sew.Knit.Create head over to my about me page.

Retro gingham apron | Sew.Knit.CreateI’ve been blogging for three years now and it has been a very dynamic experience. I’ve gone from casual blogger with a show-and-tell post format to contemplating venturing into the world of professional blogging. As a result I have been doing some re-branding. What do you think of my new, professionally designed header writing? If you would like to read about my journey I will be blogging about my experience in the next few weeks.

Vintage Skills For The Modern Woman

At Sew.Knit.Create I hope that you will learn new skills, hone old ones, and be inspired by projects and ideas. This is a place to relish in those good old-fashioned skills such as sewing, knitting, cooking, and gardening–after all those skills are just as important today as they were 100 years ago! You can hope to find inspiration in learning to sew and knit, find some great homemade jam recipes, learn from my home decorating and renovation experiences, and journey with me as I rediscover gardening. In the coming year you will find; tutorials to sharpen your sewing and knitting skills, guidance for your own decorating and renovation experiences, and recipes for cooking and canning.

I am also starting a new video series called “From the Backyard to the Table” where you will learn how to start your own backyard garden regardless of your space constraints and learn how to utilize the produce to create your own delicious dishes. Keep updated on the release date by subscribing to my newsletter!


Well that’s about it….EXCEPT the Grow Your Blog giveaway! This year I will be giving away a free stitch-holder necklace.

    1. Lol. Yes I started with crochet but I’ve found that I enjoy knitting better! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  1. What a lovely blog you have! I am here to officially welcome you to the party! Vicki appreciates you and for helping to make this a successful event…not mention a fun party! Your stitch holder necklace is stunning and a blue one would be very cute! I knit and crochet, currently have a doll sweater on my needles and those stitch holders would come in handy. Again we are glad you are here and I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    1. Thank you for welcoming me to the blogging party! I have enjoyed this event over the past few years. I have some lovely blue beads so if you are the winner I will keep those in mind. 🙂 I’m currently knitting some green socks that are nice because they are so portable. Thanks for coming to my blog!

  2. Your blog is beautiful! I’ll be following you on bloglovin. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win. I knit and crochet as well as broomstick lace on occasion.

    1. Thank you for following! I have not ever tried broomstick lace but I’ve always loved the look of it. Do you have any pictures posted on your blog?

    1. Blue is one of my favorite colors too! What types of things do you like to crochet?

  3. Beautiful blog! Interesting to read about your transition to professional blogging. I do a wee bit of knitting; can’t seem to get the hang of crochet! Love your giveaway 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, it has been an interesting journey for sure! What have you knitted so far?

    1. Thank you Alexis! I’ve enjoyed the process of putting everything together. My husband takes most of my photos and I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful photographer at my disposal! 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m going to head over and check yours out!

  4. Your blog is really beautiful. Since I have not seen it before I can’t compare but it is very clean and professional. I’ve just become a follower and am looking forward to your upcoming posts. Cheers, Susan

    1. Susan, thank you so much for visiting my blog and for following! So glad that you are joining us. I’ve got some exciting posts coming soon!

  5. Hi Naomi! I’m visiting via GYB and I’m a crochet beginner. I’m working on my first big project, a blanket, and it’s taking forever (5 months to date)! I love pinks and silver!

    1. Heather, thanks for visiting my blog I’m so glad you are joining us. I know the feeling–sometimes those big projects can take forever! Blankets can take an awful long time to finish too. Keep it up though I know it will be worth it in the end! I will keep your color preferences in mind. Hope you enjoy my blog.

  6. Hi, Naomi! I’m visiting via GYB party. Besides cross stitch, needlepoint, gold work, painting porcelain portraits (miniatures to 8×10), I love to knit. My favorite color is blue. I live your blog and have become a follower. Looking forward to your adventures.

    1. Kim,
      Thank you for coming by and visiting my blog I hope you enjoy following along with my adventures! I have never tried gold work before I imagine it would be very interesting. I’m going to go over to your blog and see if you have any projects up there. 🙂 So glad you’re joining us!

  7. HI, I’m a textile artist, visiting, via GYB. Enjoyed my visit to your blog . When time permits, I knit, crochet, felt, sew, quilt . . .

    1. Judy,

      Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m headed over to your blog to see some of your creations!

  8. So nice to meet you! I’m both a knitter and crocheter (but mainly a crazy quilter) but have had to curtail my crocheting somewhat due to arthritis in my hands. Favourite colour for me would have to be blue – or purple. Have fun on the tour!

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog! Love blues myself as well. I’ll have to checkout your crazy quilts!

  9. I crochet. I just learnt yesterday to do tunisian crochet! My favourite colour pallet is purple, blue and green.

    1. Bekki,

      Wow!I’ve never done tunisian crochet but I love the look. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  10. Hi, Naomi,

    I’m a knitter and I have just finished 100 kids hats for charity. Can you recommend the best place to send them?

    I love your new header with the soft blue and the great tagline. Nice job!

    1. Sue,
      Thanks for visiting my blog! I’ve learned so much from reading yours lately. That’s so neat that you knit! It’s something I didn’t know. I love learning new things about people I follow! 🙂 I will check some resources that I know of but often your local hospital will have a group that you can donate too. I know when our son was born the hospital gave hand knit hats to us and that was really special. Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

  11. Your blog is beautiful and I’m looking forward to reading more of your stories. I’m an occasional knitter and I’ve tried many times crochet, and will continue trying…

  12. Hello! I knit but I just learned to crochet a week ago. My mom taught me how to knit years ago but I only just relearned in December and was very happy to learn in time to knit some Christmas hats for loved ones!

      1. So far I’ve been practicing double crochet via the shell stitch. It’s fun but I need lots of practice. 🙂
