Hi Dawn :) I am a relatively new follower and I do check here everyday to see what you are up to LOL Why do I love crafty/quilting/stitching blogs? Why they inspire me to create and use my imagination. I figure if you all can do it, then I can! There are so many wonderful people that share their inspirations, lives and families so freely! Better than reading the newspaper and I make lots of new friends! How can you top that??? :)

Congratulations on 600 followers! I like to follow blogs because they give me a lot of inspiration. Life has been a bit difficult last year so I have not been sewing as much as I wanted, but to read other blogs and see all the wonderful others create keeps me wanting to sew again. My hope for this new year is to get back to sewing more. Thank you for inspiration :)

So THANK YOU for your part in that! Hopefully stitchery will follow soon!

XOXO,

I love reading/following stitchy and sewing blogs as I love to see what other people are making. It inspires me and makes me realise I'm not a wierdo for spending 3 hours making placemats as some of my friends seem to think!

Jytte R said...

I love to read/follow stitching and patchwork blogs, because I get so inspired and in a good mood by reading. Sitting on a very cold and dark day here and read about 'Sitting in the Sunshine' gives me a thrill in the good way.
After that I am ready for my own
little world and my stitchery.

I enjoy visiting blogs to find tutorials, ideas and inspiration. Australian quilts and stitcheries appeal to me so like to visit, esp. Gum Tree designers (some time ago I happened upon Jenny's blog and connected from there to yours). I rarely comment and want to say thanks from the USA. MarciaW.

I love to read all kinds of fiber art blogs for inspiration and encouragement. My mum has always been really creative with sewing and quilting and embroidery etc and I am just getting started. Plus I am a new Mummy so this is something I can do to encourage my creativity while she sleeps and I am sitting at home.
