My week with my grand-guy has come to an end. We found ourselves buried in snow and limited by outside temperatures that only sway between -4 and 15 degrees. We made the best of it as we enjoyed inside pajama days filled with hot chocolate, movies, naps,and lots of play time! It's such a joy to watch children's personality emerge. This little guy is funny, kind and so easy to have around.
So now with him safely back with mom and dad some three and half hours away, I awake this morning grateful to have one more day of the year to write and link a post thanking you and celebrating the "virtual quilting guild" I have found here in blog land with you.
My Five Thank Yous to YOU:
New this year, I hosted my very first swap! This was soooo fun!!!
Thank you for participating! Amazing to think we collected and traded 6,800 eye spy squares.
Should we do it again this summer?? Comment to let me know your interest.
Thank you for saving your change with me.
Each July I host our Annual Piggy Bank Challenge and it's always been fun
to see what quilty treats our accumulated change can buy us.
FYI: February finds us at our mid-point check-in already!
I myself am off to empty my own change purse after I publish this post.
Also, thank you for your continued participation in our weekly Tuesday Archives linky.
We've had 142 linky parties so far...and many still ahead!
1. Each Tuesday I've posted a quilt theme.
2. I appreciate the time and effort you take to search through your quilting archives for old posts to link under the theme.
3. Thank you for visiting eachother.
And remember you can find all our past themes in our Tuesday Archives: DIRECTORY
I'm grateful that when Blogger lost my follower list, so many of your commented and emailed to help me rebuild my list and thus help me to not loose touch with everyone from my little spot in the world.
Annnnddddd...of course, I enjoy your continuous support and enthusiastic acceptance of my favorite little photo bomber: Jackson! He's received more virtually sent belly rubs this year than any other!
It truly has been a fabulous blogging year with each of you as my "virtual quilting community".
My 2016 "Word" was FABULOUS...
...and what a Fabulous journey 2016 has been. I wasn't going for the kind fabulous that exclaims, yet the kind of fabulous that finds you just working to be the best you can be. To be happy, creative and content in your own shoes. To notice all the things in your daily life that make it good. And well, I truly find that with your friendships and your own blogs, that I have accomplished this. I sit here and reflect in gratitude this morning upon my own growth as a quilter, blogger and well, overall middle age lady!
I blog because it's one of those things that allows me to:
Thank you for a fabulous 2016 blogging year together!
I appreciate you.
