Are you ready? Made your list? Checked it twice? Do I hear a yes? Right so, let's press on!
By popular demand (you can't imagine how happy that phrase makes me!) I am setting up a new sewing list for you all to keep track of your winter sewing plans. I know we're in Autumn right now (or Fall, for my friends across the big pond) but its dark and dank and miserable and the evenings are just perfect for cosying up on the sofa in front of an open fire with some hand stitching, knitting or crochet. Or settling in at your sewing machine when the dinner is done and the kids are in bed, and getting stuck into some serious crafting.
I'm not a list-lover by nature, preferring to keep a lot of stuff in my head. But I did find that the utter satisfaction of looking back on what I'd done from my summer list was definitely worth the trouble of writing it in the first place. Sometimes, we're so focused on what we have to do, and what we haven't done, that we forget to celebrate all the fab things we have done. Here's where my Winter Stitching list comes in.
It's simple, really. Go, write your list. Now, be warned, like a new pet, this list is not just for Christmas.
Feel free to go beyond sewing and quilting - I deliberately used the word stitching for this one because so many people like to pick up knitting or crochet needles in the winter. If there are other stitching crafts you love, get them on the list - so embroidery, cross stitch - whatever takes your fancy, include it all!
Then, grab the button at the top and post it on your blog. Write your Winter Stitching post (I'd love if you included the button in it too) and come back here and link it up in the Linky I'll be posting on Thursday. Then comes the fun - go visiting :-) Pop over to some of the other bloggers linking up and say hi. Discover some new bloggy friends and cheer on their progress. Sounds like fun? That's because it is! Get to it!
