Happy New's Year's Eve To Everyone!

Edited at 10:30pm: I am so upset at the moment, I figured, hey new year, new look, well, I screwed that up big time, somehow I lost all my widgets and info lists, can't find it, son can't find it either! So, I'm trying to remember all of my blogs that I regularly read. You know I cried for almost 15 minutes, Jacob finally was like, it's ok Mom, just do it again! So, my blog will be undergoing changes, I've changed it 3 times so far! Wish me luck!

One year ago tonight, I started my blog. I was encouraged by my boys to try something new and fun. Well, let me just say, I have loved every minute of blogging. I have met many new friends via the blogging community and world. I was so lonely for a cross stitch buddy, I was driving my own family crazy with show and tell, help me pick my next design. Needless to say, they were bored!

I don't think Becky remembers, but she was my very first reply. I am sorry to say that Becky will be away from the computer for awhile. I hope she returns! Her comment to me was wonderful and she got me started looking for groups to be involved in. I met Anna thru PS group and from there I have met tons of new friends, Vonna, Cheryl, Michelle, Marie, Edgar, Tanya, Lizzy, Leslye, Janice, Carol, Terry, oh my gosh, I can't even name them all.

I started my own round robin! Little House Needlework Rocks! Fair & Square is awesome, SBEBB was a dream come true to be in that group! Stitching Bloggers Birthday Group!

So to show my gratitude, I'm having a drawing. You must reply to this post only, I am gonna keep the drawing open till Jan.5th,2008. I will then draw 3 names and those lucky people will receive a stitched goody from me. I still have 2 pif's left to send out, so even if you are on my pif list, you can still put your name in the drawing! The designs will be Halloween related! I love Halloween, so drop by and sign up!

I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, reply to me, whatever you did, a big thank you goes out to all my friends. Bless you all in 2008!

Happy New Year my friend!

Happy Anniversary!

I started my blog yesterday so we will in the future share the anniversary! I hope people will be interested in reading mine as I am in yours and others too. If you or anyone else wants to take a visit -

I made a mistake in the URL is should have read
iStitchaholic! but what the heck - I do not know how to correct it without starting again so I guess it will have to stay :-) unless anyone can help?

Happy New Year with plenty of stitching and blogging

Happy blogiversary! Blogging is a wonderful way to connect with other stitchers, isn't it?

Happy New Year!!

Oh no, I can't imagine losing all my blog links and configuration, I don't think I'd ever get it sorted out again. Looks like you've gotten it up and running again now though.

Congratulations on your blogiversary. I totally agree with this being a great place for support, having friends to bounce ideas off of, and being able to show off projects and finishes. The support in our blogging world is amazing.

Hope you have a wonderful 2008, and I'm looking forward to seeing all the new things you're working on.

Happy New Year, Donna! May 2008 be a special one for you and your family. I enjoy your Blog and like the 'new' look. Sorry about the mess it caused but I've done the same and don't worry - it will all come back to you. When we changed from AOL to Cox, I lost all my bookmarks and was a basket case. LOL

It's great 'knowing' you online and here's to another great year of stitching in friendship.
