I work as a software engineer in London. I moved to London in early 2010, to join Google - a year later I was spending my time between writing software at work and playing computer games at home. I got quite a bad case of hand pain in my left hand so I knew something had to be done.
I started sewing in May 2011 because I kept seeing these interesting things in my rss feeds. And because something other than video games was at that time __a very good idea__. I had actually toyed with the idea before, when I was living in Bucharest, but I failed to borrow a sewing machine and I didn't feel courageous enough to buy my own at the time.
Now I make stuff. Some projects come out well, others not so well. I'm learning, mostly by trial and error and the internet.
