Sew Thankful Sunday, November 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!

Now that Halloween is over, I’m ready to focus my attention on Christmas sewing (and Thanksgiving of course). There are so many fun projects to share and I’m sew happy you’re joining me today!
