1000 Posts Later!


Wow! Who would imagine when I started this blogging journey back in 2003 that I would be still doing this almost 5 years and 1000 posts later!

I think first I must thank each and every one of you! Each of you who stops by to see what I've stitched lately, what I've seen or where I've gone lately! Back in May of last year I finally put a counter on my blog, and hopefully by May this year I'll have had 50,000 hits! You people just amaze me! Also I love every comment I get! It encourages me to keep sharing my life with all of you ... and I hope I don't bore you too much!

Many of you have been with me through my high moments and my low. Through my triumphs and one of the most scariest moments I've ever had to go through when a year ago at my annual exam my Doctor found a lump in my breast. You were there through the mammogram and the biopsy and finally the negative results. The support I received was just overwhelming and it really helped me through a tough month! Now many of you are there cheering me on though my Weight Watchers journey. Thank you so much!

I've also been glad for every blogger/stitcher out there I've managed to meet in the last five years! I've made some amazing friends through this little website, both in person and online! I've also enjoyed each and every one of your blogs, how you've enabled me and made my wish list get bigger and bigger!

Here's hoping to many more years of happy blogging, and as time passes by I hope to meet more of you on my travels!


THANK YOU EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU!

Oh yeah... I lost another pound this past week! Yay!
