2000 post today

Well who would guess that I've had so much to say about making knots in thread over the years?!?!?  I started this blog in May 2006 and am still rabbiting on with BC3 beside me.
Today is my 2,000 post and I'm so grateful to those who follow and comment and thus keep me going!!!!  It's having the blog which keeps me focussed.  I'm very bad at actually getting patterns onto the web site.  I love the creation and putting them together but after that I forget I've done them and sometimes they stay on the computer for months until something or somebody reminds me they're 'there'.  I don't want fame or fortune through this daft hobby - just another idea in my head will do!!!

Looking back at that first post - I had two comments one of which was from our dear friend Gina.  It must've been Gina that persuaded me to start blogging as she'd been blogging for three years at that time.  In fact it must've been around that time that I first met her at Palmetto Tat Days.  Lovely memories but so sad she's not here to talk to anymore.

This is a pair of earrings she gave me at our last meeting in Cincinnati.

  9. Lost my comment, oh well. I am happy you are still here with BC 3 working out your ideas. I am not as good as you to post but am still alive and doing fine. Gina was a special person who made everyone feel loved. She is sorely missed, but I am sure her spirt is with us and prods you to make BC3 work sometimes :) Congrats on post 2000.

  21. Another milestone and so impressive! I'm in awe! I certainly recognized Gina's earrings. I'm so glad you got to meet her. I was amazed that she started blogging in 2003, a real pioneer! You weren't too far behind in 2006, and you certainly figured out all the complexities of drawing patterns, let alone designing them! Congratulations, again!
