WOW!! Today is my 13 Year Blogiversary!!

As I was reading Janet's (from Rogue Quilter) latest post this morning, I was thinking that my Blogiversary should be coming up and man, did it smack me in the face!!  IT'S TODAY!!  13 years!!  Here is my very first post:


"Well, here it is Saturday afternoon in St. George, UT and we are getting a wonderful and very needed rain. I went to my first Quilt Guild this morning and had a wonderful time!!! There were some incredible quilts shared by the members and it motivated me to get going on my own projects, with my first project being to create my own Blog. I have seen some great ones by fellow bloggers and thought, "Gosh, I think I can do that"!! So here I am and I am looking forward to this new adventure!!! I am excited about meeting lots of new friends!!"  

And boy, have I ever met some wonderful new friends!!  Plus as I spent a little time this morning going back through the years, a blog is like a little journal.  And even though it is a journal of my quilting ventures, it brings back memories of the good and the sad times in my life!!

Some years I have been really good about posting and some years not so good, but I don't think I have missed one Saturday's Smile since I started them, I think in January, 2012.  

Right now I am in a quilting funk (the last 6 months of 2022 were really weird) so I have decided to go back to a previous love, Counted Cross Stitch, for a season.

Here is my first finish (well, actually 2nd finish because I did make a little cross stitch for Janet (Rogue Quilter) a couple of years ago):

It is for my Secret Friend at Retreat next month.  She won't see it because she does not read my blog!!  :-). I will finish it out as a pillow. That's a project bag behind the cross stitch that I made to put my projects in.

Ok, if you have stayed with me this far, I am preparing some Blogiversary gifts.  In order to have a chance at receiving one of the gifts, please leave a comment telling me where you were and the things you were doing in February, 2010.  On Friday (February 13th) I will pick my 3 favorite comments (so tell a good story!!) and give those three comments a choice of of some fun stuff - most favorite, second most favorite and third most favorite.

And a huge big thank you for all of you that pop in each Saturday for that needed smile and all the other posts that I manage to post from time to time!!  I hope to be more active in the coming months and years!!
