A lover of all things creative, I started sewing in 2001 which is also when I started PatternReview.com, an online sewing community. I also love to travel and you’ll see a lot of it on my blog. I live in Massachusetts with my husband Gagan
who patiently lets me explore fabric stores in all our travels! Lately a lot of my posts have been about my daughter – Dia (currently 2.5 years old). I can’t help it! I guess this has become my digital scrapbook. I hope one day when she is old enough, she’ll enjoy reading about herself 🙂
And since I love to “create” I like to experiment in my kitchen too. We are all vegetarians so I am constantly experimenting with cuisines from all around the world. Most make it to the table but some aren’t so lucky 🙂
My motto – BE PRESENT! I live for today, so when someone asks me my long term goals, I say “Ask me what I am doing for lunch!”
My style is fun and funky. I rarely follow trends but I love them anyway 🙂 It’s what keeps things fresh. I am inspired by color and you’ll rarely find anything in basic colors in my wardrobe. As for accessories, I love handbag and shoes! But I’ve never met a girl who doesn’t so I am ok I guess 🙂 My current favorite color is Purple. It was inspired by this top I sewed.
On this blog, I will share my travel experiences, my cooking experiments, fun traditions. Heck, I might even talk about sewing!
