Happy New Year

I hope everyone has a very happy new year.   I haven’t posted for a while because I haven’t gotten much quilting done.  when I have had the time my back has not cooperated!  I’m on the mend and hope to have some progress to post about soon.

As I sit here thinking about the last year I thought you might be interested in a few statistics.

In the month of December I had 64,639 site views.

Since I started blogging I have had 575,294 views.

I never imagined when I started that so many people would be interested in my quilts and garden….but it sure is humbling And I want to thank every one of you for reading

Happy Quilting

    glad your back Tim – thought maybe you had lost your power after all – but your back – my DH went through back troubles some years back and it wasn’t fun, hope yours improves soon

    Happy New Year Tim! I look forward to your posts & was getting worried. Glad you’re o.k. I had family that lost power & were staying with other relatives anxiously awaiting their power back, so wasn’t sure if you’d lost power as well.
