Out of all the sewing projects I have included on this blog, one has garnered the most attention – my gram’s ice skate ornament. It started out as an effort to modernize one of my favorite childhood ornaments as a tribute to my gram. I thought it was fun and decided to share a tutorial because I guessed many of you would like it. I was right, my ice skate tutorial has been one of my most popular posts. It was posted on Craft, it was listed on Whip-Up’s mammoth list of holiday tutorials and more.
Then, early this year I even received an email from an editor named Megan Smith wondering if I might considering allowing my tutorial to be included in a 2010 Sewing Calendar... And of course I jumped at the chance. I only had to supply a few pictures, a link to my pattern and sign a form. So easy. In turn for all this I would receive a complimentary copy of the calendar.
This week the calendar arrived on at my door! I love it and think I may need to pick up another copy : )
The calendar is filled with more than 100 quick and easy sewing projects from many of your favorite crafters including The Long Thread, Skip to My Lou, Pink Chalk and Finny Knits. The list is way too long to include all of them in my list - can I just say I am honored to be included. There are so many names I recognize and many I don’t - I can’t wait to check their blogs for even more inspiration.
If you think you might enjoy one of these, they are already available for order on Amazon.
