Thank You!

I wanted my last post of 2018 to say "Thank you!"


Thank you to everyone who has followed my sewing journeys this year.  Thank you to everyone who's been following those journeys for years, especially as I enter my 13th year of blogging.  Thank you to everyone who has left a comment, linked to a post, or suggested someone else follow me.

Thank you to all of the vendors that have willingly donated gift cards, discount codes, books and patterns this year and in previous years, for my readers.  Your willingness to work with me is truly appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who has met me this year.  At the Socialist Soiree, Sew Camp, at Baltimore Destash, for lunches (especially since I always forget to take selfies to document things), meet-ups and to hang out at the fabric store.  These times enrich my life and are treasured for our times together.

Thank you to my friends. The people I email and DM, pictures, questions and just to talk. I appreciate the flavor each and every one of you bring to my life.

Thank you to all the sewing bloggers who continue to blog. I know it seems as if blogging is being overlooked by other social media avenues, but I truly thank you for the time you take to document your garments progress. The time you take for pictures and putting it all together. I learn so much from all of you and recognize the time and effort you put into each blog post - so thank you!

A special thank you to Michelle at Sewn Magazine/Thatblackchic, for allowing me to write a column in Sewn Magazine. Truly, truly that means more to me than you probably realize.

Another special thank you to Caroline & Helen at Love to Sew Podcast. It was a special treat to speak with you in October. To be featured amongst sewists that are moving the sewing community forward and sharing their love of our artform made me so happy and so grateful.

Gillian, thank you for always asking even when I'm too busy, too tired or have my own sewing agenda...you always take a chance and ask! So thank you!

Lastly - I sewed a lot in 2018. Maybe not in quantity but in quality there was a lot made. I'm not sure I'm going to sew as much in 2019 since I have a few trips planned but when I'm home, I will be sewing and blogging about it.

May whatever being you believe in bless your 2019. May sewing continue to bring much joy, love and light into your life in 2019. 




...as always more later!

  1. And thank YOU, I am grateful that you continue to give your time and attention to this blog. I have lots of empty hours working home health night shift where I have to stay alert but also quiet. You inspire me with dreams of sewing, but have entertained me and led me off to check out bloggers you follow and fabric stores you love. My clients have no clue that they owe you a thank you as well!
