Whew.

Are you visiting Fluffy Sheep Quilting looking for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway?  Just page down a small bit or click here to enter.  Thanks for stopping by!

I'm exhausted.  Are you?  How many blogs did you look at yesterday?  I wish I was actually counting.  This was my first Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I am overwhelmed!  It was great searching through so many new blogs.  Some were fabulous, some gave me great ideas and some were lovely sources of inspiration. 

While I was searching blogs yesterday, I came across Sewn by Leila.  Starting on 17 June, Liela will be kicking off her "We Can Do It!" program aimed at taking the "scary" factor out of new skills.  This way, many online friends can learn a new skill together and get over the mental hump stopping you from trying that extra special block.  Each 12 inch block will teach the maker a new skill ranging from beginner skills of cutting and triangles, then advancing to wonky blocks, foundation and paper piecing and eventually moving onto the daunting hexie and curve! 

Are any of you thinking of joining in?

I can't remember how many new blogs I started following yesterday, but, yes, I am exhausted, too! I hosted a giveaway, too, and my inbox has been full of comments all day!

I am totally exhausted from all the giveaways, I haven't been able to blog hop tonight! I saw that skills builder and think it looks great, but I'm not sure about the schedule, I must read it again properly, if its 2-3 blocks a month I'll never keep up!! I'd love to do it though, still thinking about it :-)
