Sew Grateful

Today is a very easy challenge - to write about our own Gratitude for the Online Stitching community.
So here are just a few online people who helped and inspired me when I first started browsing this wonderful stitching community.  Four Firsts:

  • Florence was the first blogger who shifted me from blog-reader towards blog-writer.  She had written about a dilema she was having, and in the reply comments everybody was very positive and agreeable, and this moved me to write a comment and thus become a blogger myself.  You see, I thought that the other comments weren't helping her out.  They were very kind and complimentary and that definitely has a huge part to play in supporting one another.  But she writes such interesting and informative posts, she deserved to receive some help herself.  And then I was worried I might be in the minority and I might be overstepping my rights to comment, but Florence replied with such appreciation.  She even used my suggestion in her completed item!  It was a revelation!  I was able to be of true help to somebody in a crafty/sewing way that I can never do in my real life ( I have NO stitching/crafty friends at all)
  • gMarie was the first person to start following my blog and ever since then she has shared supportive comments and inspired my pattern choices and given me fabric ideas.
  • Debi is the first blogger of whom I asked for information and she was VERY forthcoming with detailed information for me, and so I am SEW GRATEFUL to her generosity, her experience and her blog writing.
  • Karen is the first fellow blog-writer who has ever sent me something real in the post, and I am grateful for how interesting and diverse her posts are, especially with the frequency with which she writes them!
There have been many since then, but these are my First introductions to you all and they've left a lasting impression.
Swirling with Gratefulness

  5. Such a lovely post; thanks for sharing it. That photo is amazing - I just read your post about it, and I made the same dress two years ago for a school production of Oliver!(I loved it but was never brave enough to wear it "just because" though - good for you!)

    1. WOW that's amazing! If you still have it you should think of somewhere you could wear it for a photo shoot at least!! Even just swish around the house in it!
