Grow Your Blog
Welcome to my cyber home. This is my second year participating in the Grow Your Blog hop. Last year I made several new friends that I frequently exchange emails with. I'm so glad that Vicki offered the hop again this year.
When you meet someone, it's nice to know a little about them...just to see if you have anything in common. So, I'll tell you that I have been married 43 years, lived in the same house almost as long, have 1 daughter, 2 grandsons (17 and 19) and three dogs. I love birds and enjoy watching them visit our feeders. I entice the Blue Birds, tolerate the evil English Sparrows and dote on all others especially Crows.
My blog is just like my home...eclectic. This is where I share a little of whatever I am thinking about except politics. My interests include my family (including my 3 dogs) and my home and yard including our fish pond and garden. We always seem to be in some stage of redoing both inside or outside. I have creative interests besides the garden and critters...some may call them hobbies...are sewing, embroidery, crochet and beading.
My husband and I have been retired for a year. Honestly, it took that year to adjust to not having a specific place to be at a specific time. We lost a little momentum last year, but the creative juices are flowing again. I hope you will come back to visit. I love comments and reply to all. That's how you build friends, isn't it!?!
This year I will be participating in the Crazy Quilt Journal Project. I'm new to crazy quilt so the challenge of embellishing a block a month is welcome. Also, I met Madame Samm last year and will be participating in some of the quilting blog hops she has organized. Madame Samm has also started organizing cross stitch hops. I did cross stitch years ago, and I'm sure it will find it's way into my stitching this year because she has inspired a renewed interest. I most always add beads in some way to my stitching. I don't know where else this year will take me, but I'm sure I'll be stitching.
How 'bout you. How does YOUR blog grow?
