100th Post!!

Can you believe it? My 100th post already. Blogging has been quite an adventure and, for the most part, I've really enjoyed it. The best bit by far has to be all the lovely friends I've made over the months - so to all of you kind, thoughtful, wonderful, supportive and inspirational people - a big THANK YOU! from me.

How to celebrate? Well, I was thinking a skinny cappuccino later... Seriously though, doesn't everyone have a little competition on their 100th post? Well, I wouldn't want to be left out - so, the first person who guesses what my middle name is (d'ya hear that Mary? - LOL) and emails me with it, then I will send them a little prize! Incidentally, I feel I should point out that whilst I don't exactly hate my middle name - I wouldn't have chosen it for myself! (it's just not me, y'know? then again, maybe I should just embrace the name...lol) Anyway, I digress - go on, have a guess!

Just a couple of other things to say on this momentous post. I have finished the ATCs I was working on. Here is a photo below - I did add a few beads to one or two of them after this pic was taken and now most of them have been posted off to new owners. It's been quite a lot of fun working in this size, I've always liked 'miniature' things, even in art class at high school I can remember loving getting into the detail of things.

I've still not been brave enough to try inchies yet though!



I've been browsing through the first issue of the new Fibre & Stitch ezine, thanks to a very generous person who has gifted me a subscription (you know who you are! xx). It has some great ideas and techniques in it and I've only managed to have just a quick look so far. I'm hoping the article on Embellisher Techniques by Purple Missus will finally prompt me to get my machine out of the box in the corner!

Hurrah! for 100 posts and blogging friends!!

Hello this is Sarah, Congrats on the 100th post!!!!!!Has it been what you expected when you started? I do indeed have a new coat in a rather fetching shade of orange, I shall post about it - as it is fab, however the posting will be my only form of communication at the moment (apart from jesticulating) as I have almost completely lost my voice.... not good..... still I think my colleagues are glad of the rest!

Bravo, darling! After 20-something years, you would think I'd know your middle name, but I can't recall your ever mentioning it. What a great secret squirrel you would make! I'm going to have a guess at Mildred. xox

Angel Jem said...

And I missed it! Bother school and all the time I have to spend racing around for it. Never mind, I would never have guessed your middle name was Audrey in a million years.
Well done on the 100th, and here's to the next 100!

Woo Hoo! Congratulations on your 100th.

I'd never have guessed your middle name.
