Thursday 21 April 2022: Molly of Mikeandmollyshouse, unlike Teresa desewtropia, doesn’t enjoy making Halloween costumes.
Mike and Molly still share their IG account but it’s basically run by Molly, and you’ll see all the videos about her sewing and the house they are renovating.
From 2008 to 2011 we had a blog called Mike and Molly’s House where we shared how we were tackled our overwhelming credit card debt and shared all of our maker-ry things that we were doing.
In 2019 I decided to do more garment sewing and discovered the sewing community which also included the Sew over 50 account. It’s a community that really pushed me to improve my skills as a Sewist especially with garments.
Instagram is a sketchbook for me to put my ideas out there often times they are spontaneous to the point that in the morning I don’t have a clue what I’m doing but as the day progresses, I am creating stories with an arch. Often they include my cat, grandson or a particular part of our current house renovation.
I have psoriatic arthritis that leaves me with chronic pain. Sewing has served as an activity that I can do even on really bad days. More about this in the next podcast with Molly.
