Wow — I woke up this Sunday morning to a whole bunch of friendly, encouraging, thoughtful, and funny comments on my blog. What a great way to start not only my day but also my week! I’m certainly “feeling the love” so to speak, and I thank you for all your kind comments to my request (plea, actually) to know there are fellow quilters, crafters, travelers and really friendly gals out there who are reading my blog!
Everyone who posted a comment now has their name put into a hat for a random drawing to take place this Wednesday, Jan 21st for the EZ Pineapple Log Cabin Ruler! So, if you haven’t posted a comment yet, there is still time to get in the drawing.
And I’d like to thank my friend, Mary Flynn of Quilt Hollow, for posting on her blog about my blog, website, free mystery quilt pattern, and giveaway. Thanks, Mary! (Be watching your mailbox around the end of next week for something fun to come your way.)
I’ll do my very best to respond to every single comment that is posted because I want each and every one of you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to write. I’m thrilled to make so many new friends through blogging, and will look forward to spending time perusing each of your blogsites as well.
Thank you again. My shade of blog envy chartreuse has turned to a pretty shade of all smiles. 🙂
Just color me HAPPY! Kimberly
Way cool, Kimberly! Glad we could replace the chartreuse with a SMILE!
Hi Kimberly, Love your Blog! Thanks to Mary for directing me your way. Have really enjoyed reading others blogs! Everyone is so very creative. I’m not a blogger yet, still too new with this technology, but I’m learning a lot. Also interested in your KMQ’s, anxious for next weeks instructions.
Hey I read but don’t always comment. Thanks so much for your blog.
Mary — I can’t find the words to thank you enough for your encouragement and support! Just look at all the great gals who found my blog and website through yours! You’re the best!
Jane — I’m tickled you decided to comment this time, and thank you for reading the blog! Feel free to read it without commenting. I’m just glad you stopped by! 🙂
Hey Alice — thanks so much for stopping by. I’ve been glowing pink all day….:-)
Hi, Patty! Welcome to the blog — so glad you found it! I’m also delighted to know you’re following along with the mystery quilt. See you next Friday (if not before!)
Well, look at you now with all kinds of blogging buds checking in on you! See, bloggers really do read and care what you have to say but they may not always comment. A giveaway is a sure fire way of getting word out and you’ll now find it will go through bloglines like wildfire! Last night was a “slow” night for bloggers. I bet you get ALOT more comments in the next few days. I’m glad I could help some.
I just joined your mystery quilt and will be going through my stash to see what I have. I am hoping to stay caught up on it , but we shall see…if not Iwill download every installment so that I can finish it. And yes, sometimes I do have “blog envy”…
I’m glad we helped you to feel a bit less GREEN. 🙂
Never have left a comment on a blog before, but there’s always a first time. I do read your blog.
What a great blog you have and all kinds of blogging friends checking in now!!!
See, ask and you shall receive! I’m imagining you as lovely shades of tropical batiks right now.
I’m hoping that more than a few of your new fans will pick up on the mystery quilt this time around. I have my fabric all cut and am ready to roll. By the way, I always thought your notation to “treat yourself to a nice new rotary blade” was kind of like my telling my kids years ago “make sure you wear your mittens and scarf”. They’d roll their eyes and say “yeah, yeah”. Well, seeing your reminder “nagged” me to change my blade. Holy cow. I hadn’t realized how dull my blade had become, and how much unnecessary work I’d been putting into cutting my strips. I have 3 rotary cutters that I rotate, so I changed ’em all. The new blades went through the fabric like a hot knife through butter. Thanks for the gentle nag — I needed it! Now I need to find a source where I can buy blades in bulk.
You have no idea just how special and HAPPY I am to finally feel like my blog has been “discovered!” Thanks for checking in!
Pat — THANKS for the validation about changing your rotary cutting blades! YEAH!!! Ladies — take note! You’ll make yourself REALLY happy if you start projects with a fresh new blade. Pat concurs!!! 🙂
So glad to hear you’ve got your fabrics cut and are ready to roll!
Kimberly, I am so glad you are getting a lot of visitors!!! Elaine
