Reflecting . . .

This evening I was reflecting on how little I have been blogging lately because I seem to have so little time to sew and have fun things to share.  Then I got to reminiscing and went back to my very first blog post!!  And guess what!!

I just missed my own 4 year Blogiversary!!  Oh, no, it was February 6, 2010!!  Yiks!!

Happy Blogiversary to me . . . 
Happy Blogiversary to me . . . 
Happy Blogiversaryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy dear Lavender Quilts!!
Happy Blogiversary to meeeeeeeee!!

And many more!!

When I was young, one year I decided to give everyone in my family a gift on MY birthday, so, I would like to give one of my wonderful friends and followers a gift - at little late but its the thought that counts, right!!


Just leave me a comment telling me how long you have either been blogging OR following blogs if you don't have your own with the month and year you started.  I will pick a winner March 1st after I get home from work!!

Also, if there is anyone out there that knows BLUEBIRD-LYN or if you are BLUEBIRD-LYN please let me know.  She was the very first comment I ever got and she said,


Hello Kris, welcome to blog land....I am positive you will enjoy the warmth, support,
 inspiration from all of the wonderful bloggers....Warm Regards Lyn

Lyn was right!!  I have loved blogging even though right now it is mainly my Saturday Smiles!!  Thank you all for making the past 4 years so much fun!!

I started my blog on Oct 5 2010 (made me look it up), but started reading blogs probably 2 years before I started one myself. Congratulations on such a wonderful journey and hope there are many years of sharing with you.

Oh, happy blogiversary to you, Kris! This should call for a celebration, but you are such a busy woman now. : )
I started reading blogs 3 years ago this month. Come May 16th it will be 3 years since I started my own blog. I guess I am kind of a newbie, here.

Happy Blogiversary, Kris!
I began my blog in March 2009, and I've written nearly every day since. Here's wishing you many more, happy blog days. (French General is my all-time fave fabric line. Thanks for putting my name in the hat for your drawing!)
Blessings,
Donna

Happy blog anniversary! I made my first blog post August 23, 2010 after being a reader of blogs for a couple of years. Thank you for sharing your celebration with us by sponsoring a yummy giveaway!

Happy 4th! I started blogging 4 years ago May and read blogs for at least 6 months prior. To sound like all my older relatives, "it sure doesn't seem like it's been 4 years." Thanks for the chance at a great giveaway.

sklinn62 said...

I started my blog on September 12, 2012. I enjoyed reviewing my older posts while I looked for the first post.

I do enjoy the little record of my creative life. :)

Congrats on your blogiversary!

Nancy said...

Gosh Kris, I can’t believe it’s been 4 years already. I found your blog a couple of months after you started it. Yours was the first blog to post a link to my blog on your sidebar and I was so proud to see it there. I started my blog a little before you in 2009.
It’s been fun following along with you and getting to know you and becoming friends through blogland.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Happy blogiversary! I followed blogs for a few years before I started my own in Dec '07. Gosh the years have flown!

Michele T said...

How wonderful to be celebrating 4 years blogging!! I have been following blogs for about the same time. Thanks for all the inspiration!

Sharon Hughson said...

I think I have had my blog for about 3 yrs. I'm too lazy to check right now. I don't blog often either. LOL I love your blog though.

Luba Hoffman said...

Happy Blogiversary to YOU!! I have been following blogs for a couple years but just in the past year have actually subscribed to having them arrive in my email. I don't have many that I keep up with - as far as quilting goes, I subscribe to yours, Brynwood Needleworks and Pat Sloan. I only know about the French General Line because of recent talk on Pat Sloan's page! As usual, you are so generous, Kris!

LJ said...

That is wonderful! Not that you forgot but that you're celebrating 4 years!! Congratulations! I don't have my own blog and don't remember how long I've been reading blogs - I think 2 1/2 to 3 years ago. Honest, it started so slowly and now I've grown to reading/following over 450 blogs. Sometimes I think I should downside but can't for the life of me figure which I'd want to cut!!! Oh no, maybe I'm a hoarder - a hoarder of blogs.

Jan Baker said...

I don't blog but have been reading blogs for almost two years. My son actually got me started. I have learned so many things and I know my sisters get tired of me saying "on this blog I read they say to do it this way"

Sherrill said...

Well, my profile says 'on blogger since May 2008' but looks like my first post was 8/22/08. And my buddy JoAnne was the first one to comment on my blog. Too funny, never would've thought to look. Congrats on the 4 yrs. and thanks for the giveaway!

Chiska said...

I started blogging in March of 2009. I love reading blogs since it expands my world so much. Happy Blogiversary to you! We call giving a gift to others on your day a Hobbit Birthday. My little brother loved doing that. Thanks for your blog!

Hi Kris,
Happy Blogiversary. I don't have a blog and I think I started reading when our quilt guild started their blog.(maybe 3 years ago) Since then I have added many blogs that I like to read to my bookmarks. They inspire me. I always learn so much from them. I enjoy your blog. You are a very positive person. That is a good thing to be. Thank you for sharing your talents. Ann

I'm an obsessed blog READER who is bereft if my favorites slow down on the posts. I love to see pics, read stories, see quilts...the whole thing. Thanks for blogging and LAVENDAR is my signature color in almost all of my quilts..that and cranberry or some kind of pink.
