The Wednesday Showcase 2015 Hall if Fame

During the last week of the year, I always like to take a look back, and one of my favorite look backs is the Wednesday Showcase. The Wednesday Showcase began as a way for me to say thank you to all of you who have blogs and follow my blog. I have met some of the most amazing women. I love seeing what you do and sharing in your creative lives. 
This past year, my Wednesday Showcase posts have been a bit sparse, my apologies. But nonetheless, those who have been showcased are fun, amazing and talented. So in case you missed a post, here's a round up of the ladies of 2015. Be sure to check out their blogs. A couple have not posted much in recent months, but I am hoping they will return. One hasn't posted for a number of years, but I'm hoping that I can talk her into returning.
In case you missed the 2014 Wednesday Showcase Hall of Fame, you can check it our HERE. I'll leave it up for a few more weeks, so check it out :)

The year began with
who brings us inspiration based on art. 
The lovely MaxLau of  http://vonmaxlau.blogspot.de/ who knows how to copy a designer piece like a pro.
Duckndam of http://www.duckndam.blogspot.com/ I especially enjoy seeing her sketches and plans.
The very talented Helena of http://www.grayallday.com/ Lovely patterns and be sure to check out her monthly feature, Sew It Chic, where you get to feature your makes.

Rebecca of http://sewpomona.com/ loves beautiful details.
Angela of https://frayedbanana.wordpress.com/ She is rather new to sewing, but does amazing work!
You may remember that Caroline lost her mother back in September. She has not posted since she made the announcement. I'm hoping that in time she will return.

Her daughter is just the cutest little munchkin :) Be sure to read about the award her husband just received and their amazing trip to Washington D.C.  
New to sewing and so many firsts. She hasn't posted for a while, but fingers crossed that we'll see more from Shirley soon :)
Tracey has not blogged in quite a few years, but I showcased her as her work is incredible and fun, like the picture below. Maybe, maybe she'll return in 2016. 
Mary of http://kf-biblioblog.blogspot.com/ does the most beautiful easy to wear pieces.

Ariation of http://ariation.blogspot.com/ Lovely pieces and a great sense of style.
Myra of http://1simpleinspiration.blogspot.com/ is one lady who knows how to take a flop and make it a wow!

So 30 ladies in all this year. All talented, all inspirational, and all adding to this lovely creative craft that we all love.

One last note, do you have a blog that I have not showcased? It can be a little difficult to find some of you! So if you have a blog, let me know. Just leave a comment below with a link to your blog. A couple of years ago, I put the word out that I would like to meet new bloggers and gave an invitation to email me with blog info. I have felt so bad as I managed to lose the links :( So Leaving a link on this post will be best.
Wishing you an inspiration filled day!
