Happy Birthday to me....

and thank you for you. I am not officially participating in Sew Greatful week, but I'd like to do a quick post.

First, thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for helping me move on from defeat and revel in my own victories. Also, thank you for sharing your knowledge with me through your own experiences.

I love this little community we have made amongst ourselves, and you all really mean a lot to me. The Mr. will often look over my shoulder while I'm on the computer and I will say, "Oh, that's my friend Sallie in Galveston," or, "my friend Heather in the Yukon." And I really mean that. It may sound crazy and slightly stalkerish, but I consider you guys my friends. If you are ever in Houston or a few hours away, let me know. I will see what I can do to have a good  meet up.

Second, thank goodness Mr. Thinks He Can and I are closing on a real honest to goodness house next Friday. With more than one room (and a pool!) It may be slow going for a bit, but trust me when I say we need this house badly. Interim living is stressful.

I am Sew Greatful for you guys and for this great skill that brings us together.

  4. Happy Birthday Stacie! Congrats on your new home! Yes this is a wonderful community. I am not a blogger, but I love to sew. I'm retired from the telephone company...living in a very small town in South Dakota, so to see/read about what everyone is making...and to learn from other sewists is a blessing for me.

    1. I agree! I live right in the heart of Houston, and it is still hard to meet people who like to sew. At least we all have each other!

  5. Yay!!! Do you get our very own designated sewing room? If not, can you drain the pool and turn it into one? Priorities, Sister! hehehehe. Congratulations!

    1. I will have my very own room! I can't wait to put in some proper shelves and tables! Now if I could find a way to sew while in the pool I'd be set.

  6. Aw man, I missed this! Happy (omg so) Belated Birthday! I'm only *checks* 13 days late. *facepalm*

    I say the same thing to my boyfriend. "Oh I was just chatting with my friend in Australia on twitter", and "hey look at the pretty quilt my friend in Texas made!". :D

    Good luck on your house! I hope you've had good news on that since your birthday.
