I have so many things to be grateful for this week..loads actually. What I intend to do, is to name 1 or two things that I am grateful for everyday of this week, and then follow it with Debi's plan. Debi wants us to :
- Host a giveaway: post by Monday, February 6th
- Create a tutorials or offer up a pattern: post by Tuesday, February 7th
- Write a reflection post (on what your 'sew grateful' for): post by Wednesday, February 8th
- Finish a sewing project: post by Saturday, February 11th
So, today, I am so grateful for the online sewing community. I have met so many nice people since I started blogging about my sewing projects, and I have come to know many others in distant places, whom I would never have e-met if not for our common hobby.
When I started falling sick because of The Bump, I got a lot of support from my sewing friends. Marie, from A Sewing Odyssey went one step further, and sent me this gorgeous fabric through the post to cheer me up. What touched me about this gesture, was the fact that she had, through my sewing projects, realised that I loved bold and bright prints. I absolutely love this fabric. How thoughtful and sweet is that?
This is not the first time I have received something from someone I met through sewing. Rachel (House of Pinheiro) also gifted me with this lovely fabric when we met last year after my surgery. Rachel and I have become really good friends through our mutual love for sewing and blogging, and have found out we have alot more in common than just sewing.
So, I'm giving away 2 metres of this cotton lobster print.

Below is a picture of a dress Adrienne made using this fabric. Pretty right?
