I cannot believe that I have been blogging for one year already! My how time flies when you haven't a clue. Hehehe. A big thank you to those bloggers who gave me support and advice in the early stages of this creation. With or without the help of blogger along the way, hum hum. A big shout out to my girlfriend that turned me on to reading the stitching blogs to begin with; this really all happened because of you. I read the blogs and I was like, I can do this and who better to share my crazy addiction (all though a bit tempered lately) to cross stitch than with other crazy, addicted stitchers.
I have been impressed, inspired, encouraged and enthralled with what has been shared by the bloggers I have been following and by those who are following me. This has been an exciting adventure and look forward to more to come. I am so thrilled to have 44 followers for my lil' ole blog within my first year, thank you, thank you for your wonderful comments, advice and encouragement.
I been moved by many stories of joy and sorrow in these electronic pages. We have touched each others lives in more ways than just stitching. I think one way that really is endearing are the foster kitties we get to read about from some of our sister stitchers. I have to be honest Theresa of Shakespeare's Peddler gets at my heart strings every time. My girlfriend is also a momma to be kitty and kitten foster mom and I just think it is awesome what you folks do for these innocent creatures. I know our furry and feathered friends are a big part of our lives and we should feel blessed that they share their unconditional love with us.
So in celebration of being part of this wonderful world of blogging and for you putting up with my ramblings more or less about stitching with other bits of life thrown in there I am having my first give-a-away for my first blogaversary!! I am really tickled about doing this (like it has not been done before). Since I am new at this I am going to follow the lead of other bloggers and ask that you leave a comment on this posting. I will not torture you too long in suspense and pick a lucky recipient on this coming Sunday, May 19th; also Armed Forces Day. How appropriate as we are also celebrating our Navy Girl's graduation from Master at Arms A-School and she is heading to her first duty station, Norfolk Navy Ship Yard, Portsmouth, Virginia. Way to go Pumpkin!!
Thank you again for welcoming me into this blogging community. I look forward to sharing many more projects and other musings.
Keep on stitching! P.J.
