Let’s Play Catch Up Today!

 

I haven’t blogged for a while and I feel soooo behind.  Not even sure where to start to catch y’all up on things. The bronchitis really whipped me this time.  It’s been almost 3 weeks now and I still don’t have my voice back completely…I’ve been croaking for so long now that I’m almost used to the sound.

Thank you all for the wonderful response for my newest pattern, “SNOW”.  Those who have ordered it should either have it now or it will be delivered shortly.

I have been working on some things to sell as finished items, so watch in the next few days for the pictures.

I haven’t had this happen for a long time, but it’s one of those things that every handstitcher has probably done from time to time….

100_4678 See where the arrows are pointing?  Yes, indeed, I stitched my candle mat to my tablecloth.  It was the starting stitch too. 

Gosh, how many times over the years have I stitched myself to either a tablecloth or my own shirt … I won’t count!

Shame on me.  I always work on a wooden board to keep from doing this but the tablecloth slipped up over the board, I guess.  Thankfully it was only one stitch!

Ok, let’s talk about blogging and the blog world for a bit.

I have 315 followers now.  I would love to reciprocate and add all of you so that I can follow you too but blogspot makes that so difficult.

I wish Blogspot would send me a notice to let me know that someone has been added.  I also wish that Blogspot would make it simpler for me to find that new person’s blog so that I may add myself to their list.

So… here’s what I’d love for y’all to do for me.  If you’re following me and I’m not “following” you and you’d like me to follow you, please send me and email and tell me your blogsite address. 

My email address is cathspennies@gmail.com

Speaking of addresses, there are times that some of you comment and I’d love to respond back to you privately but your blog settings prevent me from getting your email address.

So, every one of you who have a blog, please, release your email address so that when I receive the comment in my email, I can respond right back to you.

To change the email settings,

** In your dashboard, click "Edit Profile" next to your profile photo.
** Under Privacy, check “show my email address”.
** Scroll down to identity and below username you'll see “email address”. Type in your gmail  address.
** Scroll down and click "Save Profile" at the bottom to save your changes.

I’ve been asked about the red dot tire prank that I did on our friends, Ben and Linda.

If you wish to read about the red dot tire prank just click here

Benny and Linda never figured out how those red dots got on their tires until one Sunday afternoon when hubby and I were traveling with them to go out for dinner, the subject came up.

Linda said something about still not knowing how the dots got on their tires and she looked over at me and saw the look on my face.  I guess  my face told her that I knew something about it because then she started laughing hysterically and said “you probably did it, didn’t you?”

I couldn’t cover up my laughing after that and hubby did nothing to help me, so I was caught!

So they know about it now and Benny promises to get me back.  He said that he already knows what he’s going to do but he has to wait for time to pass so that I’ll forget.  

 

Ok, that’s all for now.  I promise to keep up on the blogging this week to give you addicts something to read.  Honestly, some of you are such nags!!  :)

 

Happy Day everyone!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better. I have comments come to my inbox and then I just respond back on that and it seems to work easily for me that way.

Glad you are feeling better. I just got over the same thing recently.

I have always loved your penny rugs and I would love it if you'd be one of my followers.
