Sew Thankful Sunday, July 2021

{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 July 2021 is full of projects for summer along with tips for quilting and much more!

Hello July and happy 4th! This is usually a month of vacations and/or long days of outdoor activities. We don’t have too many plans this summer other than a few weekend getaways. Maybe I’ll catch up on some UFO’s or start something new. I need to make a plan! Today’s list for Sew Thankful Sunday in July might give me some ideas.
