Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Blogging has changed my life

I was just sat here reflecting how life has changed since I began blogging ... all in a positive way, of course! I feel so much more confident in my stitching, and within myself, and it's been wonderful sharing the trials and tribulations of my newfound online pals, and sharing those of my own with people who think the same way.

When planning holidays and breaks away, I immediately wonder if there are any bloggers in the area I could meet up with and put a face to the name ... the world has become a much smaller and friendlier place to live in :)

Having the blogging outlet has helped give me relief from a bad day, and I often sit here at home feeling a sense of peace with life itself. I thank those of you who have become part of my new smaller world, and am very grateful to have met you {{hugs}}.

I recently looked at my counter here and saw it hit the 20,000 mark, and marvel at how many of you come back for more to read my drivel every week, but feel grateful that you do come back and provide such wonderful support and friendship.

That's all I wanted to post about tonight ... I was just sitting here thinking how 'at one with the world' I feel, even though I had a tough start to the working day today, and wanted to say a heartfelt thanks :D

To my online pals ... I salute you!! :D

Congrats on 20K! You have a great blog and I enjoy my visits.
I definitely know what you mean-I have a nice network of friends from blogger. Where else could we find them and get to know them any better?

I agree blogger is great, I dont know many people who like to stitch as much as I do so reading blogs makes me feel like my interest is more normal LOL.

Hi Anne, thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog, really appreciate it. About the afghan, yes it's a very big project but how about if you do what Karin has done and ask volunteer to stitch a block for you. I am willing to help out if needed. Hugs.
