Guess what is coming up next week? The second Sew Grateful Week--February 2012 edition! If you missed the first Sew Grateful Week, it goes something like this....
This is the week to show your thankfulness for our wonderful sewing community and people in your life that support your love of sewing! The idea is to use 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 to showcase that project on your blog during the Sew Grateful Week. Haven't received any material sewing items lately? That doesn't matter --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?This time around, I've put together a little schedule (no worries--it has lots of flexibility). I'll be showcasing everyone's Sew Grateful post during the week on my blog...so if you want to be included just make sure that you do your own blog post on whichever aspect you choose by the following dates:
- Host a giveaway: post by Monday, February 6th
- Create a tutorials or offer up a pattern: post by Tuesday, February 7th
- Write a reflection post (on what your 'sew grateful' for): post by Wednesday, February 8th
- Finish a sewing project: post by Saturday, February 11th
I'll be showcasing everyone's giveaways, tutorials/patterns, reflection posts and projects on the following day on the My Happy Sewing Place blog! No worries if you miss one of those dates but still want to be included. I'll be doing a final catch-all post at the end of the week.
Does that make sense?
