Happy Belated Birthday to me!

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my blog and I meant to post about it here but somehow life just got in the way.... I am working on that since it is one my goals this year...to remember to plan time to sew even when my life is challenging! But I digress!

On January 8, 2006 I made my first blog entry. I remember feeling a little nervous but I was looking for a place where I could just ramble on about what I was sewing, my love of fabric, and how much sewing factors into my life.

Along the way I shared some of my triumphs - making my daughter's prom dress, creating a couple of SWAPs...and my disappointments - my other daughter's refusal to wear the pants outfit I made her...*sigh* and the one hit wonder dress. I have even discussed some of the finer points of sewing - like quality sewing, my love of binding and my overexuberance at a good fabric sale! *LOL*

But mostly what has made this year so memorable and remarkable is the number of people who read and commented on my blog. I read every comment and tried to respond to any questions asked. I so appreciate the time that everyone takes out of their busy lives to stop by and see what I have made or what is making me speak out today! I know that one of the truest blessings of this forum is when someone takes time out of their day to agree or disagree with something that I have written about or to give a compliment on a garment/outfit or pair of shoes *smile* that I have posted a picture of....I think that was a "dangling" something!


So thank you for sharing your thoughts, sharing your time and stopping by to stop and read awhile. It means more to me than you will ever know! Hopefully 2007 will bring even more amazing sewing adventures!

  2. Happy Blog Birthday!!!

    I, for one, am very happy you take the time to share your sewing life with us. I keep reading it and getting inspired, but unfortunately, have yet to pick up the needle and actually sew.

    Maybe one day....

    For now, keep up your good work...thank you...and i really admire your sewing, your flair, and your writing.

  3. Happy blog-iversary. I enjoy following your creative path, even, or maybe especially as you try to contain your style within the bounds of corporate-dress. I know it's a huge challenge.
    That last taupe dress you made, with the ribbon trim, is just classy and beautiful. And that lovely silk print shell is just the thing to work with your last suit.

  5. No, Thank You, for all your entertaining and informative musings. It is because of you, and others, such as Marji and Stacy, that I am finally out of my sewing funk.

    I remember thinking when I saw your beautiful, colorful shell with your new brown suit, that you will never have trouble introducing colour into your corporate wardrobe.

  12. Carolyn: What is the accepted way to wish you a happy blogirthday or is it as Marj said blog-iversity? I always check out what you are doing on your blog and on Stitcher's Guild SIPP and SWAP forums. I must confess that I have been searching fabric stores and websites for the paisley silk fabric you made your tank from. Absolutely fabulous and so Carolyn.

    Keep up the good work and words.

  21. Thanks everyone for your kind comments and birthday blog wishes. It has been a lot of fun to read them and know that there are others out there who enjoy reading as much about my sewing as much as I enjoy doing it! Hopefully I will have something interesting to say from time to time this year! *smile*
