not bird/flying, but clock hands spinning rapidly...
One year ago today, I tried something new.
New to me: one blog.
The blog where I have shared my thoughts and ramblings.
Shared about my Great-Grandma B
and the promise I made to her a long time ago about learning something new every year,
about friends and family,
about things that make me smile,
things that make me think,
things that make me go "Huh?"
About quilting and hand embroidery, and pattern making.
About recipes and friends and family and love and sadness.
I know that there have been earth-shattering catastrophes and destruction.
There are still wars being fought, and diseases not conquered.
I, personally this year, have lost family members that will only live on in my memories and written word.
But, it has been a great year, in my opinion.
Another year to learn and laugh and pray and live!
Another thing that I learned this year, besides blogging,
it that the world is a very small place.
The "7th degree of Kevin Bacon" kind of small.
I have met in person and in cyberspace sooooo many truly wonderful people.
People that are not so different than myself.
We all know someone that knows someone that is our neighbor, friend, colleague.
That is what this post is about:
One year of blogging!
Of meeting folks from across this nation, from around the world.
Wonderful people that like to quilt, or stitch, or cook, or laugh, or write.
Folks that I have so much in common with.
To thank everyone
for stopping by and reading and commenting
on this new thing for me this year- this blog,
I would like to have a
