My Bloggerversary...

Hello Friends!
Guess what?! My Third Bloggerversary was last Friday, August 14. On that day in 2006, I made my first really poor post and became the original "The Twisted Stitcher". I chose that name because I'm a child of the 80's and I like to think myself a little "twisted" with a sense of humor. So my blog was born.....

In Celebration....
of the big anniversary I made these:

A Scissor's Fob ~ and A Floss Tag
when creating these I stitched
The Goode Huswife out of print design "Three Crows"

The Fob is filled with polly pellets for weight - just like I like 'em - so that they lay nicely on the arm of my chair ~ and contains a penny for good luck. While the Floss Tag is a matching complimentary stitcher's necessity.

To win....
these wee items made by own paws, the only thing necessary is to be a reader of my blog - you don't have to be a frequent commenter, you don't have to have ever commented at all, you don't have to post this on your blog....but I do hope that if you do leave your name that you at least read my blog from time to time and think of me as a friend. That's it! But please make sure that you leave a comment on THIS POST only and that your E-MAIL is with your comment so that I know how to get a hold of you in case you're the lucky winner. The winner will be announced next WEDNESDAY August 26, 2009.
I have been blessed....in so many ways by this blog.
You've shared my successes.....
You've cheered me on......
You've given me advice......
You've made me smile....*countless, countless times*
You've made me cry.....
You've shared my tears of loss and sorrow.....
You've given me hope....
You've eased my pains.....
You've shared my burdens.....
You've given me joy....
You've made me happy....
You've made me laugh out loud....
YOU have been my friends.....and confidants...
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I will never regret for a moment the joy this blog has brought to me. The friendships I have gained. I just hope in some small way, that my words have brought something valuable to you. I thank you for your visits, I thank you for friendship. YOU humble me.

May God Bless each and every one of you!
GOOD LUCK!

  4. Happy Blogaversary, Vonna! And actually, while you have been blessed, you have done that over and over to us many times, so we thank you! Love the tag and fob; could I enter, puh-lease???
    And speaking of "twisted", this is a little before your time, but did you ever hear a song by Joni Mitchell called "Psycho"? A pretty interesting, funny song - very catchy and contagious. A bunch of us girls used to walk around campus singing it all the time. Your comment about "twisted" immediately brought this to mind...

  32. One eye here, the other looking out on the patio as Homer and Gracie watch the birds fly over. I worry that one of these days they'll jump for one and over they go! Hopefully they're smarter than that, but you know a bird is pretty tempting. Speaking of Birds! OMG Your finishes are beautiful! Did you use the suggested threads??? I know thats your fabric. The treads on your fabric match so well. They scream autumn! September!
    Mom says hi! She was worried about you and she too just got a notice that you've been posting all along!

  35. Vonna, yours was one of the first stitching blogs I came across and I remember being in awe of your beautiful finishes that I had to send you an email. I'm soo glad I did, as since then I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about your daily life, your gorgeous kids and waiting to see your wonderful finishes you do. Without your tutorials I would never have known how to venture out and make such different finishes with my work. Vonna YOU inspire us!!

    Your blog is one of the first things I check on the net. You have inspired me to stitch so many things - it seems I'm always on the hunt for a pattern after seeing it on your blog. Some are a lot easier to find than others!! I do enjoy all the tutorials that you so graciously share. Thanks for all you do.

Drooling over the photos, wishing I wasn't finishing-disabled, etc. You rock! I'm so glad that we've gotten to know each other and become friends. Happy anniversary! Tell the DH that all blog anniversaries require a dinner out. ;)

  114. Happy Bloggerversary! I am fairly new to the world of blogging. I discovered yours by accident and have greatly enjoyed reading your posts. You have made me excited to start stitching again. I had given it up years ago. I thank you for sharing!

  116. Happy Blogversary, Vonna.

    As a number of others have already said, your blog is an inspiration to us all; not just your stitching and finishing, but your devotion to your family, and your faith. Even when I'm so caught up in my own life that I feel my blog reading falling behind, I always try to make time to visit your blog.

    Your giveaway is adorable - I'm sure whoever wins it will be thrilled!

    Keep on blogging!

  126. Happy Bloggerversary. You were the one who introduced me to the world of blogs. I wanted to finish a piece without framing and by doing a search I discovered your tutorial for flatfolds (very nice work and easy to understand-thanks). I have been following your blog and I finally made up my mind to create my own blog. I enjoy viewing your work and watching the kids growing. I also like you quote on Bibles that are falling apart - it is really inspiring. Have a wonderful anniversary.
