Inspired Us Thursday, September 18!

Time to show it off and link it up! It's Inspire Us Thursday! Link up your creations in fiber: sewing, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet, whatever.

Today, click on the link just before yours regardless of the medium. Who knows what you'll find. 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.

Last week's most view link: This gorgeous Dip-Dyed Cardigan from Work Pray Sew -- and it was her first time dip-dying! Click through to read more about it, including the modifications Angela made to the original pattern.

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!

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!

You should really see all that goes into each project!
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.
