Three years


Today marks three years since my first post to this blog. It was another post-Christmas day when we were all at home together, when I was still enjoying the time off but craving a little structure and wanting to exercise my mind just a bit. I got all of that, and more. Blogging has brought so many positive changes to my life, this past year most of all. I've had the chance to do things I never imagined a few years ago, such as reviewing a crochet book, being featured in a magazine and attending local media events. I've had a lot of fun, but the most important results of blogging are the friendships I count myself lucky to have found, and the learning, sharing and growing with fellow writers, makers and observers of the world. Thank you for supporting me and for inspiring me.

    Best wishes in the New Year to you and your lovely family.
