Good morning, my friends! It's time for the first NewFO Linky Party of fall. I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to some cooler, wetter weather because that can only mean one thing: more time for sewing! Am I right about that? Well...only for us Northern Hemisphere people, but you Southern Hemisphere people have had your turn.
Okay, then. It's time to show off your new stuff from September, finished or not. This month, being back-to-school month, we're playing for the schoolhouse quilt block lapel pin. Everyone who links up with a newly started project has a chance to win. No finishes required!
And since I was traveling for almost the entire month, I've had to reach a little for my NewFO...but then, it's my party, so I can't come unprepared, now can I?
Remember when I made up a new stitchery before I left for this little quilt?
In a panic for something to show, I actually started it!
And then, I put it aside because I'm still working on my quilting snowlady. And I have a few other NewFO's from previous months like that. It's not cheating...we're just having fun here.
So now I'm ready to see your newly-begun projects for September. Here are my simple and friendly rules. (Yeah, rules, baby.)
1. Please link-up with your newly started projects from September, finished or not. If you feel like it, show us the progress you've made on any other previously posted NewFO projects.
2. Please link back to this post from your blog. Also, please link to your blog post, not your blog. Links to entire blogs will be edited. Links provided for the sole purpose of promoting other events or shopping experiences will be deleted without apology. Please do not link to your Etsy shops or other giveaways and/or promotions you have going on your own blog. To be clear, it is okay to link to other events, but I want to see your NewFO's as a part of your post.
3. Don't have a blog? Upload an image to this FlickR group and link to that. If you have questions about how to do that or about how to link up, please email me. If you're having trouble posting your image, email it as an attachment, and I will be happy to post it for you. Please know that it takes a bit for your thumbnail to appear, so don't despair. It will appear eventually. You might need to "refresh".
4. Obviously, I need some way to contact you no matter how you link up. No email address and no other way to contact you equals no entry in the giveaway. Email me separately if you need to.
I'll leave this linky party open until one minute before midnight on Monday, October 6, 2014. Winner of the Schoolhouse lapel pin will be announced on Tuesday, October 7, 2014! We will ship anywhere in the known Universe, so everyone is welcome!
