Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

So on the first of every month, here at, we have a linky party to show off anything you've made or worked on (or even fabric you've bought) during the previous month.  There is a second linky party to help small blogs meet and connect with other blogs.  You'll find a few new blogs to follow and hopefully build up the network around your blog and gain some new followers too.     I've sewn very little during August as it's family holiday time but a couple of earlier projects did appear in UK quilting magazines.  Firstly this quilt made from Woodwinked by Dear Stella appeared in Love Patchwork and Quilting ...

 ... along with a matching wall hanging. 

My regular block of the month feature appeared in the same issue and every month we provide a free quilt pattern to go with the block.

And then this Sunflowers quilt made from Oh Happy Day! by Dear Stella appeared in Quilt Now ...

... along with a "day in the life of" me where you can learn how impossibly glamorous my life is...!

And what about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you.  As always here's the button to grab - a brand shiny new one this month to reflect the new blog header!

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.  Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.
