Sew Thankful Sunday, April 2019

{I love the idea of “paying it forward”. I think the world would be a better place if we could spread some joy and acknowledgement of good deeds done by others. I try to do that once a month for my Sew Thankful Sunday posts. I highlight some great content that I’ve found on other people’s blogs that I hope will inspire you and reward the originator by bringing traffic to their site. If your blog has been mentioned without your consent, please let me know and I will take you off the current list of featured bloggers.}

  1. I’m catching up with my reading..sew much cuteness here! I have tried that bunny clip art on a pillow and love seeing it on my couch, but on the mini quilt it is a great idea too! I printed out the needle point mason jar, this could be a good “in the car” project too. Would like to give that a try…. and my kitty cats could use a placemat… getting my notebook out and putting these thoughts to paper…. thanks for sharing. 🙂 and Happy Easter Julie!!!

  2. Thank you for sharing, Julie! I have had pot holders on my to-do list forever; this just might be the incentive that I need to get them made!
