A small landmark, and an update

Some of you will have received a notification about this in your Reader yesterday, and found the post was not there. Sorry about that, but I was a doofus and hit Publish too soon. I meant to schedule it, and had to take it down again in a hurry.

First, the landmark.

It’s exactly 4 years and 4 months since I started this blog. It’s been a lot of fun, I’ve made many kind and interesting friends, learned a lot and received much support and encouragement. And yesterday, I got this notification:

So to all of you out there, old friends and new, thank you. Thank you for following, reading and most of all, commenting. It wouldn’t be so much fun without you 🙂 People who comment, who actively participate in the life of a blog, are what make the blogging world go round, and I’m so grateful to you for taking the time and trouble to do so.

And now, the update. The Lime & Soda porch curtain is coming along nicely. I have all the rows joined. Next, I’ll start working out the triangular pieces I need at the top to fit under the sloping roof and add the side and bottom border. It’s lovely renewing my acquaintance with these blocks; I’d forgotten just how pretty and fresh they were, and the colour scheme is perfect for this use. Those lovely lime greens pick up the greens outside (or will, when we’ve had some rain!), and the blacks will echo the black porch chairs I have out there. And Bonnard is creeping ever closer to the halfway point. Another line completed yesterday.

Back to the sewing machine this morning, and hand quilting this afternoon.
