For the two people who read this blog

I started this little blog here about four years ago, as a way to separate my family blog from my crafty bits. I mostly intended it to be a way for my friends and family to see what I was up to, especially when we thought we were going to be in Russia for a really long time. Look, here's me in Russia! With a giant snowball!

Ahem. Anyway.

Over the years I've gained a few little followers, which never ceases to surprise me because really, I don't think any of this stuff is all that interesting. I don't do giveaways to boost my numbers. I don't post tutorials or do quilt-alongs or include links to my blog in comments I leave elsewhere. I'm a lame photographer. But it doesn't really bother me because I'm not in this for money, or so I can sleep soundly knowing I have 11 billion followers. I don't even really know why I do it to be perfectly honest.

That being said, I felt kind silly going out on a limb and trying to challenge you few readers to do a tiny project and blog about it. Well, TWO of you did it. Just two. And thus ends my brief experiment in interactive blogging. :)

So here are the little spruce ups posted by Rachel from Stitched in Color, and by Lyndsey from Domestic Light and Magic, posted way late because it was my anniversary and my kid's birthday and, well, I forgot.

First off Rachel crocheted a tissue cozy to go with her beautiful Bottled Rainbows quilt. I love how fun and crazy this is! I'm still kinda wondering if her husband let her keep it there...

Lyndsey made this cute garland to give her kitchen hutch a wee face lift. I love how summery and happy this is. Also, totally jealous of the gorgeous hutch. Just sayin!

Anyway, there they are. I'm kinda glad they're the only ones because I like them both a lot and this made it way easier to narrow down the choices of who I put on my blog. Ha ha.

Ok, but I like hers better. I saw a banner like that at a festival on the 4th with rounded edges. Darn, more sewing ideas.

Good to see you with a huge snowball at this time of year ;)

What about me? I'm obviously your third reader! I missed this challenge, what was it??

Oh, and you don't have to leave a link in a comment for people to find your blog, it links automatically! that's why it drives me mad when people say "come and visit me at...."

I follow too but I also stalk you at home:-)lol
Your too cool for school chica and I am not creative enough to post on your blog but maybe one day....

I read your blog too!

Darn it. I missed the challenge. Trying to finish my 80's swap item (which is taking FOREVER).
I still want to make some new cushion covers. Hopefully next week, when my sewing schedule opens up.

Well, crap, I went and missed my 2 minutes of fame. *huffs* I am totally jealous of that crochet. I am not great at it *at all* and think that's just so funky and groovy and slightly ridiculous in the BEST way. Want.
