One year down, many more to go!

So, can you believe it… it has been a year today since I’ve started this little blog. I’ll tell you how I found out about these blogs, I typed in a search for a wedding ring quilt cross stitch pattern on Google. My search took me to a blog by Doodle-Head, and I saw her own little space online with her hobbies all listed out nice, and then saw her bloglines, and I clicked to so many different blogs about the same thing, I was HOOKED after that. About a month later I started mine :) And I love it. I’ve since signed up for exchanges, round robins, PIF gifts, and have so many new friends, amazing! I have noticed my finishing has been so huge too. Last year I had 15 cross stitch finishes, this year, it’s over 45 (if you include all of my RR and Exchanges) and the year isn’t over yet. So if that tells you anything… you know I am hooked for sure. In light of this wonderful enhancement to my life, I’m going to have a giveaway. I have something picked out to do this with, but won’t show you, it’ll be a surprise. So, leave a comment and I’ll put your name into a hat :) I’ll have Jessie pick the name on Sunday the 28th. Oh yes, if you live overseas that is okay!

I am still getting ready for the Halloween Party. Tonight is quilt night at church, so I am going to be there for that, but otherwise I’m cleaning house! I can’t wait for the party! Don’t worry I’ll take pictures for you :)

I first discovered blogging about three months ago. I was fascinated and still am. I love seeing pictures of your family. You have such cute children! Pictures of your travels are so much fun! Thanks for the chance to win something of yours. May you have many more anniversaries.

I found blogs through Yahoo groups and someone mentioning their own. It took me awhile to start mine. I'm not an online kinda gal...no myspace page or anything. I really enjoy your blog and your works. Happy Blogaversary!

Happy 1st Blogoversary! I started my blog in a similar way - I stumbled across some stitching-related blogs, and now, over 2½ years later, here I am. And like you, I'm also addicted. :-)
