I cannot believe that I started to witter online a year ago but boy have I enjoyed it!
So, as it stands at the moment, I have had 20,603 hits, for 83 posts and just over 600 comments. I have had visitors from all over the world, including a group of ladies in Brazil, some cross stitchers in Israel and looking at today's stats, Brits, Irish, Aussies, Kiwis, Serbs, Canadians, Americans, Indonesians and Greeks. It just amazes me how people find the blog.
During this time I have learnt to write regularly, post up pictures and to improve my tutorial writing... well, I should have got better as we have 18 tutorials on line and counting. I have even set myself a challenge of writing a tutorial every week until Christmas and I promised to do this stone cold sober!
And what will Year 2 bring? Well, I am going to begin regular book reviews, more tutorials - let me know if there is something you would like me to tackle - and better pictures *note to self, practice more and find a use for the jar of marbles*
Finally thank you to all of you who take the time to read the blog and leave comments. I still get such a frisson of excitement when I look at the daily stats and see how many have looked, where they have come from and what they think of the blog - thank you all very much and don't be a stranger xxx
