Sew Magazine and a Blogaversary

We’ve had a weekend away. Freya and I shared a friend’s cabin at Center Parcs. It’s something we both love doing but we leave Mr Jones at home; he is rather disparaging about the place!

We had a great time on the Segways and even had some Stand Up Paddleboarding tuition but I seem to have spent the rest of the time submerged in water and have come home with a stinking cold!

So I’ve nothing to update. I can see by the multitude of posts I have to catch up with, you have all been really busy.

I just have this to report. The wedding purses I made for myself and Freya, for my wedding last year, made it into Sew Magazine as part of their wedding day makes article.  

I can hardly believe that this time last year I was up to my neck in wedding preparations.

I thoroughly enjoyed all my wedding crafting. Thankfully, I had managed to spread it out over a few months so nothing became a real chore. It’s not something I’d like to do again in a hurry, though!

And then this popped up in my notifications this morning!

My blog is two years old today!
I never thought I’d reach two years but blogging and reading blogs has become such a part of my day to day routine it’s not something I have to think consciously about making time for. Conversing with all you lovely people is not something I could consider not doing.

I get to meet some more sewing bloggers in ‘real life’ this weekend. We have a bloggers meet up arranged in Leeds to chat and tour around the local fabric stalls and shops; something I’m really looking forward to.
So I’d like to ask you, how old is your blog?

Love, Lucie xx

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  4. It took me ages to catch up with all the missed blog posts in my Reader after our few days away too – I really miss seeing what everyone’s been up to if I don’t browse for a day or two. Woo hoo on your two years, quite a milestone (my first bloggiversary is in a couple of weeks, I think).

  11. How exciting to be in print! My blog is about 5 years old; I started out very regularly, then got VERY sporadic, then got in step again when I got back into quilting and found linky days.
