…I'm about to loose control and I think I like it!
I guess you have to be a certain age to remember that one. But I really am excited and delighted. So Sew Easy has been nominated in the Burda Style Top 50 Blogs for Sewing Enthusiasts and in the Sew Mag awards. Whoop, whoop.
As part of all of the celebrations and events for National Sewing Month, there are various awards and votes taking place this month and I've had a couple of nominations that I'm so chuffed about.
1 – Burda Style Top 50 Blogs for Sewing Enthusiasts.
We asked and you answered… what are the best blogs for sewing enthusiasts? Below are the blogs other BurdaStylers are loving for sewing inspiration, DIY fashion ideas, and sewing tips.

2 – Sew Magazines Sewing Awards 2014
It’s that time of year again when you have the opportunity to nominate the crème de la crème of the stitching world in the British Sewing Awards. If there’s a sewing shop that goes above and beyond, or a pattern house whose designs are dominating your make list, then let us know! Those with the most nominations will then be put through to our voting stage, where you will have the opportunity to cast your final votes. Not only will your favourites have the chance of winning a prestigious award, you will also be entered into our prize draw to win a whole bundle of stitching must-haves to the value of £250. Have your say now!
This award has so many categories! It looks rather intimidating because they ask you to vote in all of the categories, but actually, you can just vote in the ones you want to, and where you have no preference, write N/A (for not applicable) or just leave a . or a * or something where you don't have an entry.
You might like to vote in category 8 – Best Sewing Blog 😉
Anyone worldwide can vote in the awards, but only those in the UK or with a UK mailing address can win the prizes.

Are you excited about all of the events and giveaways planned for National Sewing Month. We're only a few days in and already I've been taking advantage of the sales and specials.

Thanks very much Jane, you made my day.
Congrats on the nominations Deby. I have just returned to sewing after many years and I must say, since I started reading your blog, I haven`t been stuck for an idea yet…….Well done you…..Oh and I did vote for you in the british one, and will keep my fingers crossed for you. You really deserve it.
Thanks very much Sandra, I appreciate your vote and your kind comments.
I have voted for you in the Burda one as well as the British Sewing Awards.
I am loving the new pic! You look so happy and healthy! I guess sewing suits you down to the ground 🙂 I love this blog because it gives me encouragement to sew which is a new hobby for me. I only wish I had done it years ago. More power to ya. btw, keep putting those tunes on, You had me bopping around (I know, I’m old) to Turning Japanese and the latest Pointer Sisters. Great!
Hi Anna, and thank you for your votes, I appreciate it very much. Oh and the new pic – its the wonders of photoshop, plus the benefits of living in the Caribbean gets some credit too. And a little bit of music nostalgia and shaking it in the middle of the day keeps us young too!
Congrats on the well-deserved nominations! I love your blog!
Thank you Jan
