Three Years Of Blogging

Wow, it’s hard to believe but I’ve been writing this blog since April 20, 2006.  Some marriages don’t even last that long!   I wanted to celebrate in some manner and decided that, for me anyway, the most enjoyable way would be a little walk down memory lane.   You know, kinda like TV shows do a reel of clips of old shows when they reach a milestone episode?   Since my blog’s theme is primarily “making stuff”, I’m showing some of the projects I have had a lot of fun creating.

A few quilts first…. (See, I do occasionally finish things.)

Since I am expecting houseguests for the weekend, I am posting this a bit early.  Happy Blogiversary to Me!
