I'm not a blogger, just a blog reader. I love reading about people with the same interests and hobbies. Tutorials are great, I love to learn something new. I'm 49 and have been sewing on and off since I was a child, I just learned how to make a knot, from a tutorial. Amazing, that I never knew. Thanks for letting us into your little part of the blogging world. ;-> Toni Anne

Not so sure what my "favorite" thing about blogging/reading blogs is...
probably because there are so many clever/interesting people out in blogland. I mean, you just have to check out a couple blog posts and wow!!! a person can be sooo inspired. Thanks for all the give away opportunities.:)
