9/11/01. For all those who lost their lives, all those who lost loved ones, all the heroes who gave all, I remember you and I will never forget.
This past July marked five years of blogging for me. My blog is not "out there" like many blogs. It's a quiet, not well known blog, without a lot of followers......kind of representative of my real life. I enjoy blogging. I can look back over my posts of the last 5 years and be reminded of things I had forgotten. It's like a journal. So I enjoy blogging, with or without readers/followers. That said.....I am so honored and amazed that I have 29 followers! Thank you so much for taking the time to be interested in what I have to say. In the 5 years that I have been blogging I have never had a giveaway. It seemed kind of silly to do so if you didn't think you'd have anyone enter. I also struggled with what to "give a way". I think it's time for me to give it a try. I'm going to put together something and have a giveway! I'll announce the giveaway when follower number 30 arrives. I'm really going out on a limb here, self esteem wise, because I still fear I'll have no entries. Please prove me wrong ok??? =)
On a stitching note, I set aside RHS briefly. Not because of the HUGE mistake but because last year I bought the booklet "Tis Halloween by Blackbird Designs. It's filled with charts of Halloween stockings. I had to break my vow of not starting anything until RHS is done. Seasonal stuff doesn't count, right?
Here's what I whipped up in just two nights:
Today is the Nascar race at Richmond. DH and I are always at that event. This year we decided not to go and to put the money towards a return trip to PA for some furniture we saw in an Amish shop. It was handcrafted and reasonably priced, VERY reasonably priced. I'll watch the race on tv for the first time in several years. The last two races at RIR have stunk anyway.
I HAVE to finish RHS soon!!! I swore it would be my last large project but that was until LHN came out with Family Sampler. I also joined the LHN Yahoo group so I could be a part of the SAL which will begin soon. Even if I don't start right away, I can be a part of the discussion so when I do start I'll have some insight of the project.
Well, that's all for now. I'm thinking about what I'll do/where I'll go today. I have new tires on my Yukon so I need to test them out! CIAO!
