I'm going to indulge in a little contemplation today as it's the beginning of the Sew Grateful Week--February 2012 edition! I always enjoy the opportunity to take a bit wider perspective on my hobby and all the amazing people I have met through it. There's an exciting week in store and it's great to see how many people are participating!
Here's what I'm planning for the week:
- Tuesday: A round-up of Sew Grateful Week giveaways
- Wednesday: A round-up of tutorials and patterns
- Thursday: A round-up of reflection posts
- Friday: Part 1 round-up of project posts
- Saturday: Part 2 round-up of project posts
- Sunday: Wrap-up for the Sew Grateful Week
Here's some things I am particularly grateful for at this moment:

Many of you know David and how supportive he is of my hobby but I should also point out how much time he spends supporting me through taking photographs, helping me figure out bloggy things (like buttons and graphics), helping me plan outfits and marking the hem on everything I sew! Now if you can imagine doing all of that during last year's Sew Weekly schedule--you can see why David should achieve sewing sainthood. He's a trooper and so supportive and lovely--THANK YOU, Sweetie!
Thoughtfulness of Others
The past several months I have really been struck with the tremendous thoughtfulness in our sewing community. The supportive comments, the lovely check-in emails--and even some surprises in the post! I feel tremendously blessed to be part of such a supportive community. It's so wonderful to have friends that get what inspires you, what you love doing and help support you along the way to achieving your goals. Thank you all so much!
An example of the thoughtfulness of others--I got this bag in the post this last week as a birthday present from the lovely Dibs from Dibs and Machine! I just LOVE it! Thank you, dear!

Another thing I love about sewing and sharing with all of you? It's so FUN! I had such a blast at the Crafters' Ceilidh meet-up--there was loads of laughter and sewing humour. I also love reading people's blog posts--they almost always make me smile!
What about you? What makes you Sew Grateful?
