2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

April 11, 2013

2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SAL FINAL UPDATE...



  98 TOPS POSTED
(a monumental feat)

I tried to say THANK YOU as each top was finished, but in case I missed someone, let me send out an enormous THANK YOU right now.  It meant so much to me seeing so many people sign up for my little old sew-a-long.  It was wonderful virtually meeting new bloggers and reconnecting with others.  I really appreciate all of your support!

The criteria for the SAL was as follows:
  • No Quotas
  • No Pressure 
  • Just Good Old Sewing Motivation, and bright new tops for our closets
  • A Win, Win Situation
 As I look back I wish I had added one more thing.  That being:
  • even though the SAL has ended, please make sure you keep in touch all the rest of the year.
Of course I'll be peeking in at all your blogs, finding inspiration and stealing a few of your ideas.   I hope you'll continue peeking in here as well.

This was the first SAL for some of our participants - I so hope you enjoyed it.
Several people said the SAL motivated them to start sewing again - I'm so glad of that.

Thank you again!  Enjoy your new tops!
I'm off to make some decisions on my next project...
