Happy News! I've been subscribed to the daily free newsletter (there is also a weekly option!) offered by the Craft Gossip site for a few months now, so you can imagine my great surprise and excitement when I discovered that my Blackwork Snowflake was today's Cross-Stitch feature!!! You can read the article, which also mentions my Free Patterns and Stitchy Resources pages (^ at the top of the site), in full here!
If you're not familiar with Craft Gossip, it posts a wide variety of DIY inspiration and tutorials in many different crafts. Each section is curated by an Editor. The Cross-Stitch editor is Connie Barwick, who is also the Guide for Cross-Stitch on About.com.
Although you can submit Gossip, and many bloggers send in their own projects, my project was either picked up by the Editor or submitted on my behalf without my knowledge - whatever the case, I'd like to extend a HUGE and enthusiastic "Thank You!" to Connie (and possibly the Submitter, if there was one!) for the feature ;)
Initially, I signed up for the newsletter just for the Cross-Stitch items, but the daily CG e-mails have become an interesting kind of surprise treasure hunt in my inbox everyday - you never know what you'll find! It's an enjoyable read, especially since I often find great tutorials in areas very different from my usual crafting interests.
If e-mail is not your thing, CG also posts on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest, and publishes in RSS format so you can follow it in a blog reader like Bloglovin' too!
Do you follow Craft Gossip, or a similar site? I love to find good craft tutorials, and am always looking for recommendations for great tutorial referral sites!
