For me and my tatting adventures, today is a special day....The one year anniversary of this blog! I was looking back through my old patterns of where I started out and it brought back lovely memories. I took my first tatting class in the last months of 2008 and started this blog the following January. I've come pretty far, if I do say so myself. I've mastered split rings, clunies, and have started messing around with earrings and necklaces. I've also made some wonderful friends and joined a lace guild. I heard a quote some time ago that said 'You never know where you are, until you know where you've been' which rings pretty true to me. I sometimes wonder if I make any progress, whether in school, my tatting or my Faith. Then all I have to do is look where I was a year ago today, two years, even five years back. When I do look back, all I can see is God's sovereign blessings. How He cares for us and I am blessed to be able to find joy in the little things.
So, a hearty thank you to everyone who has taken time to tour my journey here on my blog. We're like family in a way! Speaking of family, a thanks is in order for them as well. Just think, they've endured a year, and then some, of shuttle clicking!! It's sweet in a way because my sister and mom both say that they don't mind it anymore. I sure am grateful for that. So, one year down, how many more will follow? Only the Good Lord knows, but I pray it'll continue for years to come. Blessings on you and yours!
Much love from Illinois,
