"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

And welcome to my new followers . It is really nice to see you there , but don't be shy . Please come and leave a comment so I can get to know you. It's funny isn't it ? We all love to receive comments but sometimes struggle with leaving them . I made a point towards the end of last year to try and comment more on the blogs I read . No mean feat , as I am currently following over 170 blogs ,and like to have a look round at others to find new ones too . I don't leave comments on every blog or every blog post but I am trying to leave more , so if we all do the same , we will all get more comments and hence be happier bloggers :- D so come on everyone , leave those comments . Thanks , Cath

I'm with you on this Cath. I've been trying to leave more comments. the problem is, I often just want to say "beautiful" or "I love this" and feel silly about saying it as it's not very constructive... Mind you, I'd be happy if someone just said that on my blog so I'm going to do it!

Hi Cath, I thought I would leave a comment because you are totally right about what you said. :-) I do leave quite a few comments on people's blogs as I do love to receive them on my own too.

Happy New Year Cath and thanks for taking the time to leave a lovely comment on my blog when you dropped by. It's all too easy just to read and move on sometimes. Now your comment has led me to your blog! I'll be back!

Thank you for joining my blog. I am now a follower. You stitched many pieces last year and can't wait to see what you come up with this year. I was amazed at how many books you read last year.

Sara said...

Happy New Year and good luck with your goal! I added myself to your followers too and can't wait to see what you stitch this year:)

Hi Cath,
I am number 18 lol.
You won't have any problems keeping up with mine because I don't do as much or put as much on mine as you do. :-))
I don't know how you keep up with everything and look after your family too. I take my hat off to you.
