One Hundred and Fifty Wednesday Weeklys! You may not know this, but you can go to the Wednesday Weekly category on my blog and see all the past weeklys. It’s fun to scroll through the pictures of the pattern releases and see what you may have missed or get inspired to try something new. I love making these little roundups for two reasons. Firstly, I believe in supporting my fellow designers and bloggers. It has always been part of my vision for Helen’s Closet to celebrate this community in any way I can. Secondly, it helps me stay on top of what you are all up to. It can be hard to take time to admire the creative work of others, so I set aside this time each week to do just that. I hope you like this little round-up, too. Cheers to sharing the love!
