Sew Thankful Sunday, October 2020

{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.}

Sew Thankful Sunday October 2020 is full of fall inspiration, decorating and new finds!

Even though it’s hot and smoky here in Northern California, I am able to enjoy October and all of its pumpkin glory – indoors. Plus, I’ve found some wonderful online ways to enjoy this month and I’m sew happy to share them with you today!

  1. Hello Julie – thank you for including the information on Color Girl’s spray basting. I’ve been having trouble with spray basting lately and the refresher course was informative.

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
