birthdays, blog friends, and a sweetly stitched dino...


Miss Katie Green is celebrating her first blog birthday! To celebrate, she has a fantastic giveaway going, so be sure and stop by. This also reminded me that I just had a blog birthday at the beginning of the month, and I entirely forgot. Oh well. We'll celebrate big next year.

Blog Friends:
Miss Katie Green has become a wonderful blog friend. Don't you love it when you connect with someone, especially so far away? We might even (fingers crossed!) get to meet up next month. I know that it's not possible to get to know everyone that you "meet" online, but when you have a chance to get to know someone better (assuming that you are being wise and safe), go for it.

Sweetly Stitched Dino:
Miss Katie Green stitched that adorable stegosaurus up there. It's one of a few special guest patterns that she created exclusively for my class. Don't you just love it?!?

(This post featured dear Miss Katie Green, and yes, she is a sponsor of this blog, but this in no way influenced my thoughts...she's really just that cool!)


  1. What a cute little fella! Stegos are my husband's favourite. :)

  2. Haha this post gave me a great big belly laugh! Thank you so much. I'm blushing.

    I assure you I'm not an axe-wielding manic and I really look forward to connecting with you 'for real' :D


  3. LOVE your patterns .. they are simple and so adorable!! Most of my friends are online.. met thru swaps and groups.. that's what happens as a stay-at-home mom who would rather be home with my family with something to stitch in my hands :-) I actually met one recently and it was such fun.. we have plans to meet up more often for crafty get togethers :-)
