Sew Grateful Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Just a quick reminder that I've got the 'Sew Grateful' challenge going on this week. 

Join me in using an item of fabric, pattern, book or other item that was given to you in a giveaway or as a present from a family member or friend and showcase your project on your blog this week.  This is a great time to get around to using that amazing pattern you won in a giveaway, or that lovely fabric someone gave you--even those buttons or special notions that you've received! Haven't received any material sewing items lately?  That doesn't matter either--we can be sew grateful for the time people put into organising sew-alongs, tutorials, etc.  Why not jump in and participate in that sew-along you missed or make something from that tutorial you've been thinking about?  Even if you don't get around to finishing a project, maybe spend some time blogging about what you're grateful for in relation to your hobby and the sewing community? 

You can grab the button from this post (or email me and I'll send you the picture).

I'm planning on doing two highlights post this weekend of everyone's Sew Grateful posts!  So drop me a comment if you've done a post for the challenge and I'll be sure to include it!

Have a fabulous day!

  4. I'm a little behind but I wanted to tell you happy bloggaversary. I love to sew but if it weren't for the internet sewing community I would never have tried so many things or discovered all the fun and would have given it up. Your blog is a big part of that. Thank you!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, Debi. Thanks for encouraging this wonderful community to share a bit of thanks today. I chose to post about the only giveaway I've won, which was a wonderful collection of Sublime Stitching embroidery patterns and a tote bag on which to embroider, all thanks to Sublime Stitching and Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons. You should have seen how ecstatic I was when I found out I won! I'd never done any real embroidery before. Here's my post to share my thanks.

  6. This is so weird - Just before I read your post I did a blogpost about a skirt I made from some fabric given to me. It is a really pretty pink linen from my neighbour and it was her mothers before that. She thinks it is at least 40 years old - it was in perfect condition. I would love to join in this fun. ( however I can not get the button to work properly )

  10. Thank you again for thinking of this idea! Earlier in the week I posted about a finish for a quilt-a-long I joined and for those bloggers who related to parts of this piece.

  12. Hi Debi

    I'm tying in the Burda Challenge with this. I'm using a pattern sent to me by Barbara from Croatia in Kat's pattern swap at Sew Weekly. I've started a post about it and linked you in.
