New Horizons

Too difficult for me Swatch Happy Saint Patricks Day! This was a failed attempt at a complicated thread crochet pattern.

Good news for me today! I've been accepted as a reporter for Craft Critique! The site is mostly reviews of products that come out for papercrafters, stampers, and scrappers. I'm going to be the "Fabric Specialist" with occasional reviews of products that fall into the fabric and fiber arts realm.

I think people are drawn to certain types of crafts and I hope to encourage some paper addicts to try their hands at some stitching and fabric crafting. Who knows? They might even convince me to stop using Elmers white glue and copy paper when I (rarely) make handmade cards..

I also just realized that I'm coming up to my one-year blogiversary! I'll have to dig up a giveaway and see if that gets some of my readers to come out of hiding and comment! I know you are out there. My Stat Counter goes up all the time, but I lack the internet savvy to actually stalk you based my feedburner statistics...

I think the clover crochet would make a beautiful bracelet.

I can't wait to read your reviews too.

So happy you are joining us. You do beautiful work. If I can convince you to put down the elmers, maybe you can convince me to do something with my fabric stash.

Cheers,

Sweet! And I see some awfully pretty crotched flowers looking at me from your etsy mini.
