to say Thank you to Green Eye Crafts and Sewing, for Cat People for thinking about my blog and nominating me for this “Blogger Recognition Award”. (After posting, I noticed that Confident Beginner also nominated me. Thank you!)
Like many bloggers, I started “Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!” because I was totally/completely/utterly lacking sewing buddies! So I started stalking/following all of you, quietly at first. But I just couldn’t keep quite anymore so I threw in a comment here and there. Then there was no stopping me. I was having so much fun!
I started my blog in 2013 and from then on I reached out for more – FaceBook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram. Is there anything I am missing? It certainly has turned into an addiction that I cannot stop!
So if you are lacking in sewing buddies like I was, start by stalking/following other bloggers, like I did. Sign up on a social media site, one or all – it all depends on you! Comment on a few posts and you will have all the sewing buddies you will ever need. The sewing community is a friendly place to share and learn! Don’t worry if it doesn’t come to you right away, like sewing, blogging takes patience and practice … try this, try that … always keep learning!
I’d like to give this award to some special blogging buddies who rose to the Challenge in December – that is the DESIGNIN’ DECEMBER CHALLENGE – and thank them. I know I’m not listing all the blog titles/links here, some just might have the sites where they entered the Challenge:
I’m also going to add in these bloggers, because they have something unique to offer too:
