I have had an interest in sewing since childhood, but did not pursue learning it until I bought myself a machine in 2011.  After making a few simple projects, that machine gathered dust for a year until I decided to try again in March 2012.  It wasn't long before I fell in love with garment sewing from patterns, and I have been working on projects almost daily ever since.

I use my blog to document my projects- both successful and not, the things I've learned while working my projects, and other sewing related thoughts, ideas, and inspirations.

I decided to call my blog Miss Parayim.  It seems (seams?) the sewing blog world is rife with punny blog names, so I named my blog as a play on the Hebrew word for "scissors".
