  7. I used to be a changeaphobic! I avoided change like the plague!!! But I have learned that change can be a very good thing, and so now I look for the possibilities in it and trust the Lord to lead me out into it fearlessly (well almost fearlessly ;*}).

    So although I always hate to say goodbye to that which is familiar and dear, I am looking forward very much to seeing what is around the corner for !Sew WE Quilt! !!! I know it is going to be amazing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I know this isn't goodbye, just an "until I get back" and I know you will rest up, recharge and be constantly thinking of new and exciting things to bring to your readers. You more than deserve a little time away from here! Enjoy it but don't spend too much time buried in your homework. It is spring and you need to stop and smell the Gerberas.

    Change is a good thing. Growth, new inspiration and energy to do what we all love.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Change? Did I hear you're changing something? All seems fine now so I can't wait to see what you come up with. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Loving change! The only change I don't do is changing up my diet drastically. (food allergies) This is a change I'll gladly embrace, though!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I tend to shy away from change, but usually only because I'm afraid of what might be next. It's like being afraid of the dark, which I can admit to. Usually, though, the change is for the better and causes inspiration. Sometimes it even frees me of my inertia problem, but then gets me going so full force that I have the opposite inertia problem! ACK! But yes, I love change, I just fear it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Like many others above, I can be leery of change, but once I see it, I'm in! More inspiration, more lovlies to drool over, more wonderful places to visit. Bring it on!
    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I like change. Looking forward to what it will be. Love your blog.

  52. I'm one of those who resists change as strongly as possible BUT, I don't refuse change which is the biggest difference. I follow along without complaining, just dragging my feet at first but then I come around. LOL

    What an awesome group of goodies you have for some lucky person. Since you asked, for sure the baby sized batting is something I need very much. My next project is a quilt for my Granddaughter who was just born a few days before Valentine's Day so that would be great for me. The Peltex would also be used very quickly as I want to attempt making a diaper bag and since I want a nice body to the bag so it stands, the Peltex would be just perfect. The other things I'm not positive right at this moment what I'd use them for, but I'm sure it wouldn't take long to figure out where I'd use those.

    THANK YOU Samm for all the organization and I'm sure ALOT of work you have spent getting all the past months up and running for all of us to follow. It's been just wonderful seeing all the awesome projects and even more so, the excellent tutorials on how to make so many of those projects. (This actually is the one thing I will miss in the new direction we're heading here. Those tutorials have been SO very helpful for those of us who are still learning (or re-learning in my case) although inspiration in seeing others projects is always good too.
    BUT ~ I know you are in need of a break because of your schooling you are working on so you can get perfect grades. :) Good luck with your classes Samm!! I'm sure once you are done with those we will all benefit from those.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sometimes Change is scary, but I know it won't be scary here! You always provide us with so much inspiration and sometimes even entertainment!
    Thanks for a great blog!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love change! It is the diversity of projects that keeps us coming back for more, right?? I also can't wait for the red, white, and blue theme! There are so many holidays in the US when something made from these colors would be perfect! President's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day....It really is a versatile color combination!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Change is good, it keeps us young, keeps our minds thinking, keeps us dreaming on what is coming next, puts money in our pocket, Oh Wait! That's the wrong kind of change. I embrace change, if you can't, you can't live in today's world!! I'm done, but can't wait for the announcement, can we have more of a hint, Samm?????

    ReplyDelete
  56. I truly believe that change is good. I look at all change with a critical eye to see where God is leading me. Enjoy the break. Looking forward to journeying down the new path.

  137. Some change is good and allows us to shine; I like that sort of change. Over the years I've changed from a seamstress to a knitter, a spinner and now to a quilter. I still sew clothes and knit, but the changes that have made me look at other crafts have benefited me.

  156. I can't imagine blogland without you Mdme Samm. Change is good when it comes along with you and your ideas. I can't imagine that any one of your followers will balk at anything you put in front of us. Your leadership and uncanny ability to start a trend of educational and fun posts by people who love you and follow you and work so hard to get the opportunity to do a post in a select series, is what sets you apart from all those other trenders. I wish you well with the new path you are forging. I can't wait to see what it is. Thank you for all you do. I for one will be checking daily to see "Whas Up"

  157. Your blog has been such an inspiration. I know we can expect wonderful things to come that will continue to inspire us! Change is good...I'm sure we will not be disappointed. And I thank you so much for the hard work you put in to Sew We Quilt! You are a blessing!! Kathy

  180. There is a saying that stuck in my mind: "A change is better than a rest." Looking forward to your next set of great ideas. Thanks for the giveaway too.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Without change we do not grow. Change is seasonal and constant. Nothing in this universe stays still.
    Or
    Change is happening daily and every once in a while we need to stop, take a look at it and measure it. To change is to live.

    ReplyDelete
  182. I look forward to reading your blog - you always to awaken me with some new idea or adventure. I also am not so good with change but also realize nothing stays the same. We have to grow so therefore have to adapt to some change.

    ReplyDelete
