I'm One Today !

"I would thank you from the bottom of my heart,
but for you my heart has no bottom."
Arthur Unknown

OK birthday wise you can guess I'm not one, but blog wise I am one today. One year ago today I started blogging. What a wonderful year it has been. Nataly is the one who encouraged me to start blogging. I started following her blog right before my first retreat. I am so happy I took her advise. I can not tell you how special all of you are with your wonderful comments. I love reading all of your blogs, sorry I don't always comment but I do read a lot each day (or most days). I have learned so much, especially in how to finish a piece and new ideas. I have participated in several exchanges that have been so fun and special. I just can't thank you enough for being there when my family was experiancing a loss. Your kinds words meant so much to me.
I would like to thank all my followers with a special give away. I received a pattern from Deborah - Cranberry Samplings to make a project folder.

 


It is a tri-fold pouch that can hold your pattern and stitching. I would like to give this away to one of my followers. Since this is a "Thank You" give away, it is open to my current followers. All you need to do is comment on this post before midnight March 1 PST. Who knows maybe something extra will be added to the give away.

"A friend is someone who reaches for your hand
and touches your heart."

Thank you so much for a wonderful and exciting first year. I look forward to many more to come.
 
Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa

What a cute little pouch. I would love to win it. Right now I carry my stitching in a basket and sometimes it overturns and everything falls out.
Thanks for a chance to win and congrats on your one-year blogoversary.
