Surprise!

Cherries

As a slightly early gift to myself for my third blog anniversary, I decided to do a complete overhaul of my blog template. What do you think? I am absolutely in love with it. I’ve had the same template since my very first post back in 2006, so it was time for a change.

If you’re interested, you can read that very first post here. And yes, two of the three WIPs I show in that post are still WIPs…don’t judge. There will be a big party with fireworks and champagne when they’re finished. I promise.

Sadly, I have no progress photos of my current projects to share. It’s just been that kind of week. I’ve made a bit more progress on Earth Sampler, currently stitching that cute little speckled egg. And I’ve also spent more time on Dorothy’s Garden. I finished up the alphabet and have now moved on to the border. I am hoping that I don’t completely regret starting on the border without all the middle finished as reference points. But, I think it will be fun to have the border done so I can see how big this sampler really is. I’m also hoping that sometime in the near future I can get back to my quilting. I have several quilts in progress that are calling my name.

Thanks to all of you who have been with me for three years, and thanks to all of you who have joined me along the way!

I am grateful for my new look.

  1. Happy Blogiversary, Michelle! Hard for me to contemplate blogging that long, I just started mine in January of this year. So, I am definitely admiring your longevity! Also love your new background, what a great idea!

    Course now I had to go and read that first post, LOL! Keep up the wonderful work on your projects, and I will be looking forward to some updated pics soon!

  3. Cherries… yum. 🙂

    Love the new look and I would never fault you still having a Chat as a WIP. I think my MMV is 8 years old. Maybe… it’s depressing to think about.

  5. Happy Blogiversary Michelle! Love, love, love the new look (and for some reason I’m craving cherries now)! 😉

  7. The new template is very rich-looking but not cluttered–very nice choice!

    You and I started up a month or so apart, and shared a WIP–the Bay. I haven’t finished mine–did you?

  9. Love it! And those cherries look dee-licious! And no worries about those old WIPs, everything in it’s own time.. 😉

  11. Since neither of us finished “Bay,” we ought to start an “Old WIP SAL.” I’m going to dig it out tonight and maybe start stitching on it this soon. It’s a shame not to finish it, because the colors are great! The only thing I disrespect about it is that the design, while cute, is a little too…what? Simple? Sparse? Do you know what I mean? Still, I like it, like the floss particularly (and it was expensive! LOL) and it would be nice to have a finish this summer.
