I do want to say some "Thank you's" first---

####First to whomever invented the computer---Thank you!!

####Second to whomever created igoole--blogger--and adding comments to the sites--Thank you--
####Third to my wonderful Quilt teacher -- Sharon Stroud--who while in a class that I was attending many months ago now -- mentioned how excited she was  that she had set up a "blog" site---well--it took me a few minutes to get up the courage to ask her " what " a blog site was?????  The rest is history---here I am!!!!!

I did my first blog entry on Feb. 18th, 2009--and I had "NO" idea what I was doing or where it would lead--but let me tell you it has been a great "ride"---I have done 315 posts on this site alone--plus the second site---I have more followers, visitors and countries than I ever knew of--it has truly been an "adventure"--and I want to say thanks to each and everyone of you for being along for the ride!!!!!
