Happy 8-Year Blog Anniversary to Me!!!

Hello friends. I can't believe that today is my 8th year blogging here. I have met so many wonderful people through blogging from all over the world. I enjoy writing my posts for you to read and see what I have been creating, but I also love to look at so many other blogs that I follow too. I know I have been inspired by so many of you and I hope that you have found some inspiration here on my blog from me. I feel like I belong to a virtual quilting guild, knitting guild, and bag making guild, etc.

My very first post was showing a handbag I made from some fabric that I hand dyed.
I hand dyed this fabric and then made the Essential Diva Handbag using this fabric.

I sometimes amaze myself at all the things I have created in the past 8 years! But there has been so much more that I created before I blogged and even more before I took photos of my work. Way before there were digital cameras and the internet and computers. I guess I am a bit of a dinosaur, lol!!! 

I love to share what I have created here with you. I hope that my blogging has inspired you to try something new. I know that I am inspired every day by my blogging friends and I feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful creative bunch of people from around the world. I want to thank all my followers for sharing this blog adventure with me.
Pin It Now!


  1. I cased out your blog archives awhile back and recorded that March 22, 2008 was the date of your first posting. (And a busy day it was... I truly lost count of how many actual postings you made that day.) Wow!

    I've read much about blogs failing to make it past the first year - sort of like businesses, I suppose - and to know that you've been doing this regularly for eight years is phenomenal. (I truly believe that you'll still be at it long after I've called it a day!)

    Thank you, Daryl, for providing wisdom and inspiration to your readers for so long!
