The Best of Three Years

Three years, that’s how old this little blog is. Wow and thank you. I never could have imagined the friends, the support, the laughs. You guys are the best, you really are. So let’s do a giveaway, or three. Leave a comment on this post by Monday morning and I’ll choose a few of you to receive a box of goodies from me. There might be some yarn, some fabric, some jam, we’ll just have to see. Tell me in your comment what you enjoy about my blog, maybe what you’d like to hear more about. Three years is a lot of time to pontificate about oneself so all topic suggestions are appreciated.

    Congratulations on three years of blogging! I don’t think I even read blogs three years ago. 🙂 I don’t remember exactly how I found your blog, but it was probably through one of your sewing projects. I love the posts about sewing or crafts in general.

    Mazel Tov! I find your blog and projects so inspiring. I think I found you through your involvement in a virtual quilting bee.

    I love all you do. I can’t think of any topic to suggest because I haven’t had the time to try everything you already showed. So, go with your instincts and congratulations on the blogsversary!

    Yeah! Three years! I’ve been reading you for about a year now. I’m sure I found you through a link on someone sidebar, but who’s it was I can’t remember. I love everything crafty that you do, especially the things you do with your children.

    How about a pillow? Can I have a pillow? You know. Like Martha’s. 😉

    Congratulations on three years. You go, Mama.

    I found you while browsing another blog, Crazy Mom Quilts, who listed you as one of her favorites. You have since become one of mine too. I love your free-spirited approach to projects and especially appreciate any information you can supply on knitting socks. I’m presently a one sock wonder.

    Congratulations and I look forward to another three years of inspirational projects.

    congratulations on your blogiversary! my favorite thing that you do are the mosaic round ups from Flickr. We definitely like the same kinds of things so I always enjoy clicking away to discover more fabulous inspiration. Here’s to another fabulous year of crafting!

  15. 15 Amy February 28, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    That’s how long I’ve been blogging, too… but you are much more dedicated than I am!

    I love, love, LOVE the toys you and your husband make for the little Urchins and friends. So inspiring.

  29. 29 martha March 1, 2009 at 9:27 am

    I think one of the first posts I read was about the cabled sweater for T, which was beautiful.
    I keep coming back because you are one of the nicest people I’ve “met” in the blogosphere.
    I already won the jackpot with my pillow, so no need to put me in the giveaway pool.
    I do love marmalade though….just saying.

  30. 30 Sandra Picamoles March 1, 2009 at 11:13 am

    Wow! Three years! I have to say, I really hadn’t even read a blog, much less knew what one was until last February and then I just had to dabble in it.

    I love coming to your blog for reasons such as the wholesomeness of it, the creativeness and all the beautiful knitted creations you make.

    Keep up what you are doing, I really try to read your blog every day!

    Hi there,

    I started reading your blog over a year ago. I just love reading about all your crafting and cooking adventures. I especially enjoy reading about the ways you include your kids in crafting adventures — like dying the yarn for mitts and scarves, etc. Thank you for all the inspiration!

    HOW DID I MISS THIS!!! I saw the pictures on flickr and commented there but did not see the blog post. Well, happy 3 year anniversary (late).

    Big hugs!

  48. 48 Яков January 14, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Интересно. Вообще чтение вашего блога это не просто глупое пролистывание разных тем или чтениевсякой фигни про то, чем человек сегодня занимался, а нахождение реально занимательной информации.
