Fresh Sewing Day

Hi all, for those of you who haven't been here on the first of the month before, this is Fresh Sewing Day with Sew Fresh Fabrics where you add a link to a Flickr photo or blogpost showing everyone else something you've been working on this month.  It can be as simple as a pile of fabrics selected for a project or as accomplished as a completed quilt. Here's a button you can grab - to do this, copy the text in the box below the button, go to the post you are writing for Fresh Sewing Day, click on the Edit HTML tab at the top of your text box in blogger, paste the text in and hey presto, the button will appear. Alternatively you could put the button in your sidebar by dropping the text into the text box of a HTML gadget.

Why bother?  Well, it's a great way to get new traffic on your blog and if you blog hop around a bit and leave a few comments, you might make a few new blogland friends out there.

So what do you have to do - well you go to the link at the bottom, click on it, add a blogpost or Flickr page address, add in a title (try to make this interesting so you can to draw people to your link in particular), then have fun spending some time visiting some or all of the other links.  One link will be drawn at random and will win a feature post on my blog.

What have I been working on in May?

  17. You're not afraid of colour I can tell!
    By the way, does anyone know why I have a red cross next to my name?

  18. Dianne, everyone has a red cross against their name that only they can see so that you can delete your link if you decide to!
