I can hardly wait to see what is new with you in this new year. Have you started a new project? Are you busy sewing from your stash? Are you working on finishing all your old UFO's? Have you started working on any quilt alongs? Or does everything feel much the same as the week before?
The turning of the year brings to mind the first time my son, Russell stayed up for New Year's Eve. Round about 12:03 he turned to me and said, "I don't feel any different."
But that isn't the case for me. I do feel different. And I have been working on some ideas to change things up here on the Sew Fresh Quilts blog this year. Hope my friends will be following along and celebrating the whole new year with me!
Do YOU remember last week when I mentioned I was looking for ideas on.... "Something that would help us to connect with each other and get our readers to branch out and discover some new friends. See some new things. Get inspired and feel like we are all a little more like family." And then asked if you had "any ideas?" AND "Would you like to participate?"
Well.... Lo and behold!
My good friend Terri Ann of Childlike Fascination has been working on just the answer to these questions. She has just launched a new site - QuiltAlong.net
This new site is all about quilters connecting and sharing! So far she has added quilt alongs and BOM's to the menu and a linky party page. But this is just the tip of the iceberg! There is talk of adding quilting bees and swaps to help us all get involved and join in the fun. Be sure to sign up for her monthly newsletter so you will be kept in the loop on what's coming up and when new things are added to the site.
Still not motivated? Well..... How about this?
There is a GIVEAWAY for a $25 Fat Quarter Shop Gift Card and a Cotton + Steel Fat Quarter Bundle
Be sure to sign up for the giveaway going on till January 9th, 2015!
Hope you will check out Terri Ann's new QuiltAlong.net site....
Looking forward to meeting up with you there this year!!!!
NOW.... Let's PARTY!!!! What's new with you?
