21 and counting
In 21 days, or on January 8th, 2012 I will have been keeping this blog for four years! It was a leap of faith to start it. To think that people would be interested in what I do and what I have to say!
I had all kinds of intentions of keeping it on topic and no personal stuff but time progressed and life's events interrupted my weaving and so there went that condition!
I have 'met' many of you through the blog and developed some wonderful friendships. I can also count four or five blogs that you might also follow as having had a big nudge from me to get their start. I can spot a new blogger in the making a mile away!
I have tried to add blogs to my long list as I find them and try to be inclusive of textile blogs from all over. If you have a favourite that you like to visit and think it would be a great addition to my list, please send me the address!
So why the picture of the towels? Well, I have one (sadly, just one) navy guest towel (with the single row of hemstitching) and on my Blogiversary, January 8th, 2012, I will draw a name from my list of 'Regular Readers' (or formerly Followers) and they will receive this guest towel as a gift from me. That is the only condition: be a Follower and be entered to win.
Yes, this is me trying to get that number to shift... I'm stuck and it goes up by two and then drops by three, then up by one and... well you get the idea! I'm also saying thanks for reading!
Anyhow, good luck!
Our lives have resumed a more normal pattern, interspersed with occasional tests and doctor appointments. Hubby does not have infection in his foot bones so we are happy with that news! Both surgical sites are healing well and he's resting lots and actually listening to me! ( the married women out there are gobsmacked by the one I'm sure!) We have decorated the house, put up the tree and tomorrow some outdoor lights will be added to the deck railings to light up the dark. There is just the final polish to be put on the house and the special grocery shopping for the Day to come. My family will be arriving on the 22nd and the fun and games will be under way!
Apart from admiring what is already in progress on the looms, no weaving will be happening for a spell.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and that you spend the time with friends and family! That Santa recalls that special something from your textile / tool wish list! I will try to get a post up again after Christmas!
All the best, Susan
