It's time to link up! But first, I want to take a moment and thank everyone who participated in last week's Inspire Us Thursday! link party. I was hoping to have a dozen people join me, I was excited to have so many of you join me and thrilled that we managed to get some knitting and cross-stitch, too! However, having never hosted a link party before I did not take into account how difficult it would be to choose features.
|The Itinerant Seamstress, Conversas de Hemanas, Megilibrium, and Giggles & Beans.|
Last week Masha of The Itinerant Seamstress shared this gorgeous Lizard Ridge work-in-progress, and I just want to cheer her on to make it a finished piece!
Rita at Conversas de Hermanas linked this beautiful dress with a darling model and a perfect pop-of-color butterfly (love!).
And Meg from Megilibrium shared another work-in-progress, a CloudsFactory Magical Creatures Sampler. I adore that phoenix tail!
Finally, Shelly linked this perfectly styled lavender Half Moon Dress. I love that the model chose those beads herself.

I love a good Link Party. Perusing link parties is how I found most of the sewing-bloggers I now follow, led me to learn sewing tips and tricks I never would have discovered otherwise, and first introduced me to the world of self-published sewing patterns. My favorite parties are inevitably the ones populated by lots of sewing, or knitting, or cross-stitch, or crochet; but those links can be hard to find through all the food and decor and blogging tips these days. So rather than endlessly search the interwebs for those rare link parties full of fabric and yarn and embroidery floss, I thought I'd bring it to my little corner of the web. And now it's time to link up!
Keep to the medium of fiber.
Basically anything with fabric, thread, floss, or yarn is welcome—sewing of all kinds (sew), cross-stitch & embroidery (needle), knitting (stitch), crochet (hook).
Showcase your own work.Please no link parties, giveaways, or advertisements.
Upload up to three links per week.
You can also link-up images from Flickr; so even if you don't have a blog of your own, you can still inspire others and get feedback by sharing your work here. But please avoid repetition from week to week, or even within the same week.
You should really see all that goes into each project!
From my model preferring to wear washi tape on her belly button instead of the clothes I've sewn for her, to the ingenious way that I’ve re-purposed my favorite sewing tool, a chopstick, into a spool pin for double needle sewing on my machine. Daily updates on Instagram (and Flickr) of works-in-progress will give you that behind the scenes view you’re looking for, and sneak peeks of First Tuesday Tutorials, too.
