Sew Thankful Sunday, 01.12.2014

{I am frequently visiting other blogs and I’m always amazed at the talent and passion that I see along the way.  Since I love sharing these new “finds” with you, I created Sew Thankful Sunday.  My way of giving back to the quilting community and sharing great content with you at the same time!}

Sew Thankful ButtonToday is going to be the “flash” edition of Sew Thankful Sunday, because life just got in the way of blogging!

That’s the long and short of it!  Thank you to all of the featured blogs for your fabulous work, and I wanted to tell you that I appreciate everyone’s comments on my “Let’s Talk” post about pressing seams open or to the side.  I will do a wrap up of the conversation this week and compare notes!
