Celebrating my 2nd Blog Anniversary

On the 30 March 2009 I began blogging. I can hardly believe it, but as the saying goes,
'Time flies when you're having fun!' That is certainly true about blogging for me - it has become such an enjoyable part of my day! I love logging in to read kind, funny, encouraging and caring comments and then following the latest posts on so many other terrific blogs by people who have become friends and not just because we share a common hobby or interest.

It is time consuming but my DH can't complain as it was his suggestion that I start a blog. I think I did so because I wanted to learn from others who are amazing crafters and artists. It is such a great way to see primitive displays and creations - I've lost count of how many times I've read a post and thought 'WOW'! So what I'm really saying is that in light of such talent, THANK YOU for befriending me and inviting me in to share your life - it has been my privilege to step in and enjoy your company!

I started out from very humble beginnings as I was new to the world of primitive decorating and crafting. I'd never heard of penny rugs, sweet annie, dry sinks, jelly cabinets, punch needle, rug hooking and the like! Things I've grown to love and wish I had the time and money to indulge in!! LOL! Don't we all!!

I thought I'd look back over some of my fav posts and pictures and share a few ~
One of my earliest attempts creating a wall hanging of a saltbox house.

I love all things Americana!I love handmade dolls! For all seasons!

Time limits me to these few pictures which I hope you enjoyed.

NOW! As a thank you to all my followers I wanted to do something to show my appreciation.

A giveaway is nice, but I've said it before that only one or two win and I want to include as many as possible, so here's what I propose. If you are a follower (and you are most welcome to become one!) contact me via email, and I will email you back a copy of my Harvey Hare pattern - it's very simple believe me!So thank you all so much! It's been a fab couple of years!
