Sew Dolly Clackett: Thank You!

Holy ham sandwiches! I wanted to thank you all so very much for your amazing response to Sew Dolly Clackett! I had a feeling that it would be embraced but you have all exceeded my expectations! I must take my hat off to Nic, Roisin's lovely fiance.  He was my right hand man and made sure that Sew Dolly Clackett was a total surprise and even got this lovely pic for me:

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!

He was an outstanding Watson to my Holmes and was more than happy to employ stealth to surprise his dear Mary.  I also want to thank Sarah, Char, Clare, Gillian, and the Spoolettes.  They have kept Sew Dolly Clackett under their hat for almost three weeks and have been instrumental in spreading the word. Thank you, ladies.

Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank the generous contest sponsors.  They all loved the concept of Sew Dolly Clackett and happily donated the wonderful prizes.  It is because of them that this contest has become so much more than I imagined and I thank each and every one of them for it.  Please do take a moment to view their shops as they are chock full of inspiration!

Thank you to everyone who has blogged or tweeted about Sew Dolly Clackett! My twitter feed has never been so active and I get butterflies of excitement when I log on to my social media sites to see what's happening!

As some of you may know, I suffered significant blogging burnout during the latter half of 2013 and had actually closed my blog down thinking my zest was permanently gone.  In hatching Sew Dolly Clackett, I have been tangibly reminded of the warmth and friendship of the online sewing community and it has definitely renewed me.  Without my blog, I would have been rudderless, as it is such an integral part of my creative life

For that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This came with perfect timing - just as I was deciding to channel Dolly Clackett in order to get out of my sewing slump!

Roisin said...

Sarah - I must say again how touched and thrilled I am that you set this up. It's really heartwarming to me to see that people want to do it and I'm so in awe of your kindness and thoughtfulness. You're such a lovely friend xxx

Sarah said...

The fact that you are happy and will enjoy yourself during this is more than enough for me :)
