I have good reason to celebrate. Ten years ago yesterday I started this blog! What a fun ride it has been. I've enjoyed sharing the joy of needlework with all of you.
In the beginning, I met many new friends by participating in exchanges. It was exciting to receive mail from all parts of the world. Those exchanges also helped me to improve my finishing skills because when I sent an exchange out, I wanted to send my very best. I have a wonderful collection of smalls and ornaments and other stitched items that I treasure.
Then, my blog became my tool for learning about needlework. My fellow bloggers kept me informed of all the latest designs, gadgets, and class opportunities. Aren't we the best enablers?
Today, I use my blog to stay in touch with my friends around the globe. I've had the pleasure of meeting many of you at stitching classes and other events. My blog also helps me to keep track of various projects I've worked on. It's fun to go back and see what I was working on in the years past.
Thanks for your encouragement and for being such good stitching friends! I plan to keep my blog going. Hopefully we can do this again in 10 years!
