It's Been An Extreme Honor

...to be one of the initial nine bloggers asked to participate in The Mood Sewing Network.  I was thrilled when asked and I blogged about that excitement here.  

Throughout the last year I've had a lot of fun, met and made friends with several members of the staff at the Mood NYC store specifically Todd, Eric, George and Diane. You've all enhanced this experience for me but Monday's post was my last post for the Mood Sewing Network.

It's been an amazing journey and I've grown in so many ways.  I've challenged myself in many areas, especially photography.  But all good things must come to an end and I would like to personally thank Eric Sauma and Meg McDonald for giving me this opportunity, believing in me and welcoming me into their wonderful organization.  I will miss my monthly visits to the store!

I really hope that The Mood Sewing Network continues to grow and touch sewists everywhere.  And if you haven't had the opportunity to shop at the Mood store in NYC, you should put it on your bucket list because it is an amazing place full of wonderful fabrics and magical moments.

Mostly though, I will miss my fellow Mood bloggers.  Many of you I didn't know prior to joining MSN and now I count you as friends.  You know who you are without me naming names and I wish you ALL continued success and many more wonderful sewing journeys!

I will still be sewing and sharing my garments here in my corner of cyberspace and I hope you will continue to follow the wonderful sewists at MSN!

...as always more later!

p.s. Per Meg - if anyone is interested in becoming a blogger for the Mood Sewing Network, you should send an email to: info2@moodfabrics.com with "Mood Sewing Network Blogger" in the subject line and a link to your blog in the body of the email!!!

Good luck to anyone that applies!

  9. Awww!! I'm going to miss your Mood posts so much. I'm glad you'll still be blogging here because I would be going through a Carolyn withdrawal for sure if that wasn't the case! Best of luck with your future sewing endeavors, it's been a pleasure sewing along with you at Mood:)

  11. I'm glad you participated in this well-deserved honor, and not surprised you are now bowing out. Time to pass the torch, and to enjoy your mojo with no external deadlines. A graceful exit, a class act as always.

  13. It sure was a wonderful honour for you Carolyn and it's been fun watching you share you Mood journey. I've been an avid follower of yours way back before Mood and will continue to be for a very long time to come. I'm so thankful for discovering your blog and for getting to know you over the last couple of years and am actually honoured that I can call you one of my wonderful online sewing friends. You've welcomed so many of us into your life and your sewing den :) Thank you for being you! Sending virtual hugs your way xx

  21. I'll miss you on the Mood Network, but glad that I can still benefit from your blog. It was a well deserved honor to be one of the original nine. I bet some Mood Fabrics appear on your blog from time to time.

  22. Loved your Mood posts, but then all your posts are great. I am sure it would have been quite a commitment so now you can just enjoy sewing as your creative side leads you.

  23. While I have loved your Mood-related posts, I love your other posts just as well. Everything you make is done so well, and you are an inspiration to so many. (There is nothing stopping you from still going to Mood monthly, is there?)

  24. I know you already know it, but I'll miss you at MSN! But, I'm so glad you'll still be blogging here, and I know your stash will keep you busy for years and years to come even if you keep on your fabric diet and don't have an MSN allowance! If I ever make it to NYC, I still hope you'll come out to any sort of sewing meet up that might happen. That said, with the little one on the way, who knows when I'll be up for a fun trip to NYC, right?! Still, one of these days I'd love to see you in one of your TNT dress patterns in person!
