Inspire Us Thursday, July 3!

It's Inspire Us Thursday! It's Summer! Grab your ice-sweat covered beverage, lounge back on your virtual beach chair, feel the sun on your shoulders, and spend some time viewing all these links with me. Here you'll find a group of links dedicated to projects in fiber: yarn, thread, fabric, and floss. Maybe you're a quilter who will be inspired to try crochet. Or a sewer of clothing drawn in by a cross-stitch. Maybe you'll be inspired to put down the knitting needles and dust of your sewing machine. Be sure to check out all the links, you may be surprised where you'll find your next inspiration.

The most viewed link last week: Diya from the Hobby Harbor writing for So Sew Easy -- a great tutorial for drafting ruffle sleeves to the Easy Breezy Blouse.




Since Summer's time is limited (no school = more time with The Peanut + less time here), I will be featuring the most-viewed link each week until the fall. This way I can spend time viewing all the links myself, instead of racing through to find only a few that catch my eye.

If you've been featured today grab the "Proud Feature" button for your blog!

GUIDELINES:


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, Pinterest, and Instagram (as long as it's your own uploaded work); so even if you don't have a blog of your own, you can still inspire others and get feedback by sharing your work with us here. But please avoid repetition from week to week, or even within the same week. 



That's it! Easy, peasy, lemonade squeezy! If you see something you like, be polite and let the creator know with comments on their blog. And now it's your turn to link up!
