Posted by PicasaI'm totally overwhelmed by all the comments you lovely people out there have left for me. Paula said that it was probably the most comments she'd ever seen on someone's first blog - and we all know why, don't we? That Jackie! What a lovely post you wrote - thank you once again.
I have to tell you people out there who only know this lady in cyberspace that she truly is the kindest and most generous person you could ever wish to meet - and as funny 'in the flesh' as she is on her blog.
Which leaves me with the problem of how can I 'live up' to this introduction. I've been reading all of your blogs for ages (via Dogdaisychains of course) and can't quite believe that you've read mine! And been kind enough to comment ... When I've worked out how to do things - like reply to comments, etc. - I will do, but for now please accept this as a general 'Thank You'.
This is my first 'post' all on my own and there seem to be so many things to think about that I'm not sure it'll even make it out there? I'm going to try to put a photo in, add a title, etc but it's all so scary!My photo is of a pool in the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh, where I went with my daughter, Suzanne, in April. (I'll tell you more about my family later.) I'm trying to make a felted piece based on this photograph but I find the 'design process' even scarier than the 'blogging' one. Paula says that blogging has improved her stitching immensely ... just hope I can say the same?

Hello! Just found you via Jackie. I only started blogging a couple of months ago too - it's serious fun but I warn you - it's addictive!

Stunning colours in that photo. Excited to see what you come up with.

Jackie said...

Hey! You're off...well done.
'My work is finished'!
I am getting swollen headed with the praise, you did this all by yourself so there we are.
The picture looks lovely too, and I'm sure you will do a good job on the felt piece. Now you see you've promised everyone so you'll just HAVE to do it!
No pressure.

I'm a bit late welcoming you to blogland having just found you via Jackie... but welcome! I've been doing it a year now and it's very addictive! I loved that nuno felt piece on your last post - beautiful colours!

Hello Margaret - I've landed here via Jackie's blog. Looks like you have some good stitchering to add to the blogosphere - I look forward to seeing your work. One warning though - it's more addictive than chocolate - say goodbye to lots of hours!

You're right about Jackie, she is so helpful unfortunately i get slapped hands as I haven't done my homework - it's computer techy stuff and I'd rather craft! any way well done for your first all alone post.

Welcome to the bloggersphere, Margaret. Don't worry too much about learning everything all at once. Just let it take it's natural course one step at a time. I have always been technically challenged but I am overcoming the trials that blogging throws at me....which is surprising. I'm addicted to blogs and if I want to be a part of it all, it's a matter of... where there's a will there's a way.
