11 years on.....................

Wow too busy yesterday I missed my blog birthday............
Monday 19th Feb..........
11 years ago it was also Monday 19th Feb 2007...........
It has been one of joy, connection, friendship................
I have met some amazing lovely special people virtually and some eventually in real life........
I dream of a world trip to meet some of my friends overseas...........
I've been inspired to try different things, different techniques, colours, 
its been the fun of swaps, Stitch-a-longs, blog meets, virtual retreats, 
But the most important thing is you out there reading...............while this is a record for me of my life on here..........
If you didn't stop read and comment I would probably not be here..............
I love the connections I have made with like minded people...........
something I didn't have here where I live and still don't really...........
So I thank you my readers..........
my wonderful virtual friends........
Catch you later............
Chookyblue.............

Remember to keep the love of blogging alive................

  5. And I have said it before, it's because I discovered your blog that I am here with a blog of my own. Thank you! For becoming a part of my life, for your friendship, for digging me out of techno land so many times, for trusting me.

  17. Congratulations Chooky - a wonderful achievement. We feel the same too - almost kindred spirits with like minded interests. I thoroughly enjoy seeing your life and how you life it and often look at the weather and wonder how it is where you are. I think it is a wonderful community and consider myself very fortunate to have found it.

  24. Woo Hoo! Congratulations. Your blog was was one of the first I discovered and I was happily surprised to find that there were bloggers in regional NSW. It encouraged me to have a go, and like you, to connect with like minded people who "get it", whereas not many of my real acquaintances do. Of course, I'm very glad we became 'real life' friends as well.

  41. Happy blogging anniversary. I'm thinking, we started around the same time, how could you have been blogging for 11 years when I've only been at it for 10 years? .... Duh! we are in 2018 and I'm still in 2017! I started on Jan 18, 2007! Wow, hard to believe it's been that long. Cheers!
