Inspire Us Thursday, October 16!

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, the fiber of your choice.

Today, click on a project opposite of yours -- if you work in yarn click on a fabric project, if your project is blue click on something orange, if yours is holiday inspired click on something summery. Take some time to see what another creator is producing and let them know you visited. 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.

And speaking of filling our creative wells be sure to visit my brand new page on Facebook (me? true!) and in addition to sharing what's happening here on the blog and behind the scenes, I'll be sharing little bits and pieces of inspiration as I find them. So be sure to click over and I'll keep trying to fill your creative well.

Last week's most viewed link: Check out these fabulous Skull Zippered Bags from Embroidery Mad! I love the red satin and lace combo, it looks all muscle and bone; and doesn't the zip placement look like you can reach right in to grab the brains? Perfect.

You all have a wonderful eye for finding the best projects each week. The most viewed link from the previous party will be featured here. But I also highlight other projects and creations that catch my eye on Facebook and Pinterest.

If you've been featured here or on Facebook 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, leaf peepingly! 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.
