Inspire Us Thursday, September 11!

It's Inspire Us Thursday! Time to show it off and link it up! Link up your creations in fiber: sewing, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet, whatever. Then stick around to click around and be inspired by all the amazing work out there.

Today, try to click on a link in a medium different from what you linked up: if you're a quilter, click on a knit project; if you crochet, click on something sewn. Inspiration can come from so many different sources. If we only fill our creative wells with projects and styles like our own, our wells, and therefore our work, will become stagnant. Time to look around and see what else is out there.

Inspire Us Thursday, September 11 Feature on The Inspired Wren
Last week's most viewed link: You have to click over to see this fabulous collection of dresses with flounces and hoods (love it) at Roby Giup Handmade. This one is my favorite because the ombré flounces mimic waves so beautifully.




You all have a wonderful eye for finding the best projects each week. For the time being I'm going to continue featuring the most viewed link from the previous party here. But I also have plans to continue highlighting other projects and creations that catch my eye in the near feature -- now someone hold me accountable to that, please.

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, pumpkin spicy! 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!

  1. Good Morning Ren! There's a problem with the link-up today. The collection isn't open yet. I'll try back later. Great job pulling out that dress in time for school too! Sewing is a much nicer stress-buster than cleaning house.
