BLOGAVERSARY #1

Well, here it is my first blogaversary. I cannot believe that much time has passed already. This past year has been a real eye opener for me. I cannot believe all the wonderful friends I have made in this past year. I have seen the most amazing stitching by some of the most awesome people. I have seen more pattterns, colors, beads and ideas than I can even mention.

I would like this opportunity to say a few thank yous to some very special people


To Ann from Knowledge and Needles - it all started with her little shop
To Beatrice - who has been there always
To Dani - who started me down this blogging road and has enabled many stitches and ideas
To Carol of Garden of Stitches - she was the first blog I ever read and has kept me interested all this time and who sent me my first scissor fob for my birthday
To Ranae - one of the first bloggers I met who has been so kind to me and who sent me a Painted Pony pattern to do for my granddaughter - see Ranae - I haven't forgotten
To Vonna - who always cheers me up whenever I am down
To Teejay from Passion of My Needle - who always leave such encouraging words - we will meet one day I am sure
To all the ladies in my very first RR - A Sweetheart Tree RR that was just the most beautiful ever
To all the ladies in my neighborhood RR - it is a real pleasure connecting with you
To all the ladies over at the Snowbird SAL - we do perservere don't we
To my new friends that I have made through the Fair and Square exchange - what fun!
To all my new friends from all over the world - from England, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia
Holland, from all parts of the U.S and other countries - how cool is that!!!
To Heather from Quilt or Stitch or should I say Curran for pulling my name and winning such a lovely stitched piece from her
To all the rest of you lovely people. I so enjoy reading your blogs and seeing all your stitching. I love reading about your lives and the places that you live. It has been the best experience ever.


Now, you know the drill. Please leave a comment. I will pull a name in one week and the winner will receive a stitched piece from me!!



THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!

A whole year! Yea for Kathy! I'm so happy to have met you as well, both online and in person!

Happy Blogaversary, Kathy! It's a pleasure to visit your blog and see the beautiful things you make.

I do hope you had the chance to say good bye to your BIL in a good way. Glad you're back, by the way!

About the stamps: yes, you just stick them onto the fabric. Some people put on extra glue on it, but that isn't always needed. Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Carolien

Hi Kathy,

Happy Blogaversary!!

Good to hear from you again and to read the list of the many reasons that you love to blog. It's a
wonderful community of stitchers and
crafters isn't it?

Hope you're enjoying the long weekend, even if the weather leaves much to be desired. Pretty soon we'll be complaining about the heat I'm sure.

Cheers!
