7 Million Visits to My Blog!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit and for returning again and again! You have created an online quilting community that has added so much to my daily life...and hopefully the formation of new neural pathways so I stave off Alzheimer's as long as possible!!!

Wow, who would have thought that I could have taught myself enough to do all that I have with my blogs..especially this one with its kazillion free links, tutorials and patterns, that has allowed me to give and share and do so much more to help out other quilters even when I didn't have a clue what I was doing myself ;-)

 Seven million visitors!

Me: Well, chickens! What do you think of that?

Chickens: arrrwsppp chkchkchk!!

Me: What's that you say?

Me, translating chicken talk: Oh, anybody who spends her day talking to chickens hasn't developed neural pathways condusive to being anything but a chicken whisperer?

Oh, well. I'll take that! Do you think there's a use for me in the quilting world. I know a few of you have chickens ;-)

  4. My doctor keeps telling me "if I'm worried about getting Alzheimers I don't have to worry about it". LOL! But you have so much going on that I think your brain is fully exercised and your sweet chicks will certainly keep you pointed in the right direction.
