Thank you bloggers
At the beginning of the year I like to look back on what I have done and look forward to what is to come. Take into account the good, the bad and the downright ugly. How I might have done things differently and what I would like to achieve in the following year. More on future plans another time. What has been evident in the last year is how much Blogworld has influenced me. I don't want to be too slushy but I would like to take the time to thank all of the wonderful bloggers out there who I read. I may not always have the time to comment, but I do try to keep up as much as possible with my blog reading. You have taken the time, and yes it does take time and effort, to write about your lives, your loves, your crafts, your food, your reading ........well I could go on and on......
I won't name names, as I'm sure I would leave someone out and would be mortified, but will look at some of the ways you have all brought something to my life.
There is always someone out there who will offer kind words and support when times are hard.
When I ask for advice you are more than willing to take the time to help.
You have encouraged me to take up my knitting needles again and create beautiful things to keep me warm.
You have inspired me to take up a crochet hook and work on my first ever crochet project.
You have given me the confidence to share my quilting projects and inspired me to buy a dressmaking pattern (though I haven't had time to start it yet)
You have inspired me with the recipes you share.
You have moved me to tears with your beautiful writing.
You have opened my eyes to the beauty of other parts of the country I live in as well as other parts of the world.
You have made my dreams of growing my own food and becoming more self sufficient seem possible.
Your photos have inspired me to get out there and capture the beauty of the world.
You have taught me about the beauty of birds, butterflies and even moths!
You make me feel less 'weird', for believing in buying less, buying local, growing my own, self sufficiency, recycling, making my own, being kinder in a world that promotes the opposite of all these things.
It has been a pleasure to get to know you dear friends.
I'm sure I have left lots of things out which I will kick myself for later, but a huge, huge thank you to all of you, you know who you are. My present to all is to continue to share the beauty of my beloved Cornwall.
