2013 ESSENTIAL TOP SEW-A-LONG...
I am so excited to HOST the annual top sew-a-long again! But what makes me even more excited is the number of bloggers who think this simple, no pressure idea is worth tagging along with. Earlier in the week I posted "thank yous" on many of your individual blogs. But as the week progressed I got more and more busy and didn't have time to finish. So this morning I'm sending A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all who have joined this years edition of my Spring Top Sew-a-long. I can almost GUARANTEE that you won't be sorry you joined up once those nice colorful spring tops have taken their rightful place in your closets!
I've tried to link to each participant's blog below and hope that I haven't missed anyone. If I did miss you, or the link to your blog is broken, please let me know. BeckyMc and Lise - it's so nice to have you join up too - just email me your finished top(s) pictures and I will upload in the Grand Finale next weekend.
(NOTE: if anyone else is interested in joining, you can just let me know by commenting in this post and leaving your blog url).
