Blog Anniversary

'Collecting the stash and telling yourself that you are going to work on a project is well and good. However, like the novel you have to read for next week's Year 12 English class or the 20 bars of music you need memorised for Friday afternoon, the best way to get started is to simply begin. Consequently, I've picked up my needle and thread and have begun to stitch.'

Two years ago I set up this blog in an attempt to motivate myself to finish a few UFOs. I'm not a fast stitcher, nor do I tend to stitch more than one piece at once, so my output hasn't been enormous. I am, however, pleased as can be with what I have created. Stitch by stitch I finished about ten lovely things.

Thanks everyone for your wonderful support! It has really been appreciated.

Happiness & laughter always,

Bliss

Happy early Blogaversay. Your finishes all look wonderful. Given the size of them, even though they only number 10 in total, that's a whole lot of stitching.

Happy Blogaversary! Such wonderful finishes. I started my blog for the same reason but I think it backfired on me. I now have so many different things I want to do, I don't know if I'll ever finish anything!
