absolutely amazed

while i enjoyed a quiet day at home today doing some gardening and other ‘homely’ things, something amazing happened

just now, i checked my stats and found out there were 1,017 views on my blog in just one day – 23 september, i.e. today!

that is double my best previous figure for a single day

thank you, everyone, from the bottom of my heart xoxo

i am so grateful – thank you!

to celebrate, here are some of the more recent textile artworks you so generously responded to:

learning curve

just merged my stitchedupmama and gone rustic blogs

cropped-here-the-frailest-leaves-of-me-2-rita-summers.jpg

only learned how to do it this morning

i could have paid someone on wordpress $129 to do it for me, but i felt i was up to the challenge

cheaper too

some of the images haven’t appeared yet but i’m working on that

you can still access stitchedupmama via the original blog

but you can now access it all from the heading at the top of this page

best of all, i can edit both blogs from the one place …

feelling quite smug!

600, 200 and 1000

thanks to the blogging community – i.e. you – i reached some milestones over the past week

600 comments

200 follows

1000 likes

i started this blog in april this year and had no idea it would create this much interest

thank you from the bottom of my heart
