It's a bloggy birthday..........

Wow 4 years ago I stepped out of my comfort zone here and into this amazing land of BLOG......
........I have met some gorgeous wonderful people all because I blog.............there is no way I would have met them - our lives would not have crossed otherwise...........I am so happy I made that decision...........
you all know who you are......XOXOXOXO............
.......so many special friends I will not try and name any for fear of missing someone...........
I have also made many friends via online only..........so many places in the world I want to visit......
.....the budget just won't allow me to venture off.............
SO THANKS for being such a great bunch of bloggers...........
I really only go to crafty blogs bar a couple of photography ones..........you are the best.
&&&&
so to keep some pics in the post I will share my choices for the new SAL (by the way it is full)
I just can't decide..........."Sparkle all the Way" by Robert Kaufman 
or "Be Merry by My Minds Eye" from Riley Blake.........
both are lovely.......
Hope your having a WONDERFUL weekend.......
.....HOT day here again..............actually pretty hot weekend forecast bring on autumn I say..........
840 posts later.............

  13. Hey Chooky, I have been a follower or should I say lurker, sometime commenter of your blog forever. I have you on my google reader list. I love your photography and farm life. As a former farm girl its nice to be reminded of past memories. Keep up the great blogging. You do have a very "refeshing" blog to read. Oh yeah I think the Be Merry Fabric is the one to use on the SAL project. See ya

  14. Happy blogiversary Chooky. Your fabrics have forced me into thinking about my choices for the SAL (perhaps a spot of online shopping is in the offing)

  40. Happy 4th Blogday!! As a newbie it's hard to imagine how to blog for so long and still keep it fresh. Well done and more power to your elbow. Looking forward to your next 4 years.
    Oh... and I'd go with Riley Blake that fabric is just gorgeous!

  41. Happy Blogversary!!

    I have a question for you. Since I still won't be getting my book for a couple of weeks....what are the fabric requirements? Well, only answer if it is an easy answer like "10 fat quarters". If it is broken down into little requirements then I guess I'll just have to wait. sigh.

  54. Happy blog birthday to you--I was 2 years old a day before you turned 4!!!
    I love both fabric groups for the SAL--so why not do one in redwork and one in greenwork and then you can use both lines --and you can have one for yourself and one for a gift!!!!
    Hugs, Di
