How Old?

Happy Blogoversary to me!
I can't believe it has been a year already. Each post a joy to write and every comment received, as special as the first. Thank you for all the wonderful comments over the past year. And, a special thank you to my Followers. I always enjoy visiting your blogs. Sadly, when I click on some of your pictures, it does not display a link. It may be that you do not have a blog, but if you do, get that link on there so I can come visit! Also, to my Other Followers, I know you are there and I thank you.

Blogging does keep me focused on my quilting, so my journey will continue. Because my quilting time is limited and I prefer to quilt by hand, I will never accomplish in a week, what many bloggers do. But that's okay. I enjoy the slow, steady pace and the contentment each stitch brings. It's food for the soul. I hope I will continue to have the pleasure of your company and the chance to meet others along the way.

Until next week.....happy quilting!

Happy blog birthday! Hand stitching is, I think, a great way to unwind. I've always thought of it as therapeutic!

As a follower and blogger, I'm glad you take the time to post, thank you. Great choice of a toile for the basket. Its fun to watch several bloggers working on this series and see how each quilter inserts their own style.

Happy Blogaversary and here's to another wonderful year of quilting and blog posts!

I'm like you, although I love to sew and quilt my time is limited so it takes me quite a bit of time to finish a project. Plus I pay to have them quilted. I just piece the tops. I enjoy your blog so much and seeing what you create. I'm new to applique but am loving it. I'm working on one right now for my granddaughter and my daughter is getting impatient with me! It's been so much fun to do.

Rachel said...

Happy Blogaversary! One year is a big milestone.

Your Tisket a Tasket block turned out great. I love the blackbird. I may have to steal that idea since I haven't made my June block yet. And, look, it's almost July. sigh.

Janet said...

Happy blogiversary, it's great to hear what you get from blogging and that it's helping with motivation. The basket block is another sweet one.

Happy Blogiversary!! I've been gone so much and missed so much these past months so have missed a few of your post. Love your Basket Blocks and the rug hooking! OH...and I used to be a big fan of cross-stitch but rarely do that anymore. Yours are just fantastic! Big APPLAUSE to all!!

Nice blog! I am amazed at how many quilt projects you have going--I have three at once right now, but I tend to be a one project at a time kind of gal. Beautiful flower photos as well--
