Welcome to my blog!


To all of you who have taken the time to stop by from Vicki at 2 Bags Full who is hosting Grow Your Blog party thank you.

There are so many things in life that I love that it's really hard sometimes for me to nail down what it is that truly gets my mojo moving.  I love DANCING, yoga, photography, cross stitching, crocheting, (I've knitted a sweater - it looks funny) and I also love to read.  Then there is cooking/backing, I'm starting to really get in the groove on how much fun it is, especially watching my husbands face when he really likes what I've made.  I'm not very good at it but I'm making a gallant effort and it has not discouraged me at all.  See from the above you can see why its hard for me to nail down one activity but at the end of the day I can say that what I love to do is anything that is calming and relaxing so NO SKI-DIVING in my life time!  LOL!

I'm not the greatest blogger so I'm going to really make an effort with this Grow Your Blog.  I have no idea how to add links, badges do the gift giveaways and all those other fun stuff some of you are able to do, so thank you for inspiring me and I will learn and do.

So that is me in a very scattered nutshell.  I was never a person that could "focus" on one thing that is why cross stitching is my biggest challenge, I can be quite chatty and now that I'm older and somewhat wiser (cough cough) I'm ok with that.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and pass a good deed forward!!

Edie

Hi, I'm visiting from the blog hop, too. You will get the hang of blogging. Just go to the layout page and you will figure out how to do a lot of stuff. I hope you will visit my blog, too

Nice to meet you, and I hope that blogging - and blog hopping! - gives you as much pleasure as it gives me. I'm really enjoying meeting lots of talented people.

I don't think I could be persuaded to jump voluntarily from a plane! ;-p However, I have done a stunt-driving course - so that's a bit of excitement!:-o

As for blogging - you will find you pick up ideas and skills as you investigate what others have on their blogs (that's what I found, anyway!) Also - there are a wealth of simple tutorials and help-pages out there on the internet, so you will soon be confident adapting and adding to your blog, I'm sure!

Meanwhile, I think it's already looking fab, so well done YOU!! :-)

Having fun at the Blog Party. Heard this one long ago..."IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED, THEN SKY DIVING IS NOT FOR YOU!"

Aloha from Vicki...BLOG ON!

I think going on a balloon ride is the closest I'll come to sky diving!

So nice to have found your blog, hope you're still enjoying the party.

Found your blog through the GYB party. I also cross stitch and since I enjoy seeing what other people are stitching I've become a follower.

Take care!

heck, I've been blogging for years and don't know how to do those things. computer stuff is well above my intelligence level.
visiting via Vicki's GYB Party and have some giveaways on my GYB post.

Hello Eadie,
Nice to meet you. I am taking the tour for the Grow Your Blog party, although I was too late to participate but having fun all the same! I LOVE cross stitching but got caught with the quilting bug so one of my goals is combining the two. I love your ORT jar! What do you do with them? I keep threads too...you've given me an idea for a blog post, thank you! Nice meeting you and I will certainly become aa follower!

The ski diving is what pulled me I will join as a follower after I post! On my 30th birthday I went ski diving I think it was to say I did it. I am a certified scuba diver and used to white water raft and rock climb. Done a lot in 48 years but now I sew, crochet, knit, quilt and blog of course! Hope you will come visit me (just click on my picture, then click on blog name). I will also help you if I can with blogging. Great people help
