May 2010


It's taken six years, one masters degree, two children and large quantities of finished stitching but I have finally reached my 500th post. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who drops by whether you leave a comment or just read. I really appreciate you being interested in what's going on in my little corner of the universe.

As a thank you I have decided to stitch a gift for one of my readers. Just leave a comment on this post and I will ask Rosie to pull a name out of the hat. Comments will close on my birthday, 6th September and I will undertake to get your gift out within 6 months.

Congratulations on 500 posts I don't know how you did it with everything that you've had going, but I know that blogging was a great way to document your journey to your accomplishments.

Congratulations, Karoline. I'd like to take this time to say thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog. I appreciate your kind words. I've been a bad blog reader this summer, I've been wrapped up in reproducing a sampler, and it has just consummed me.
Congratulations also on the birth of baby Christopher. That's my son's name, too.
