Daffy's Stitchy Friends

*faints*

Look what happened over the weekend:

100,000 visitors? Are you freakin' serious? And I've reached 500 followers as well? This is a joke, right? OMG Don't you people know how completely boring and ordinary I am? I truly don't deserve such kind and faithful readers...you all make me feel wonderfully special. Thank you.

This also happened over the weekend:

One Christmas tree ~ up and decorated! Rick came home with a new artificial tree for us as our old one was pretty ratty. Maybe I'm finding my Christmas Spirit after all? I've been admiring all the cross stitched ornaments I have and I realized I don't have any stitched by me. Every single one came as a gift or an exchange! I should stitch myself a few, don't you think? But I so love stitching for others...

Here is where I'm at on my Bent Creek Snapper Year. Slow going. I've been working on a couple of other things (remember my blogoversary giveaways?) I don't think I will have any trouble finishing up in time. Then, THEN! I still have to work that horrifying border. You forgot about that, didn't you? It still scares the living daylights outta me. *sigh* one stitch at a time, right?

Maggie said...

Congratulations on all your blog visitors and followers, i'm sure your deserving of each and every one :-)

Your tree looks lovely, we too have artificial trees, less mess:-)
I'm the exact oposite, i have only 1 ornament stitched by others (Mylene) all the others are by me.
I liked your idea of having a few involved in a swap every couple of months, not sure anyone would go for it though. Would you mind posting on you blog how yours works? I may see if anyone would be interested next time i make a post.

Pauline said...

Love your tree and that says a lot when you can fill it with gifts stitched by others.

CalamityJr said...

Your tree is beautiful, and I think it's wonderful that ALL your ornaments are stitched by others. It shows how much people appreciate you and how much you mean to them. Don't feel anything negative - you should be feeling honored and blessed!

Jackie said...

I love your tree. It is so nice that you are able to decorate it with exchange pieces.

vEr0n!c@ said...

Congratulations on having over 500 Followers! Love your Christmas tree. I get what you mean... it's fun stitching for others. Only a bit more to go on Snapper Year. Take it easy on the border. You'll finish it when you finish it :)

Deb said...

Your tree looks wonderful. I wish that your husband could put a bug in my husband's ear to trade out our Christmas tree. It's so nasty that it takes the spirit out of the holidays. But your tree looks wonderful with all those great ornaments. It must make you smile to see all the ones that people have sent you.

Cathy B said...

Your tree is beautiful!

Pumpkin said...

That's awesome Sharon!!!! You always have such interesting things on your Blog :o)

Your tree is just beautiful and I'm impressed that you're working on your last block ;o) LOL!

Carolyn said...

Congratulations Daffycat! I love to visit your blog. You always have something cute you have stitched or a funny story to share.

Your tree looks great. Your December Swirls is coming along nicely. That is right one stitch at a time on the border. Before you know it you will be done.

Denise said...

You're probably more interesting than you think you are. Your tree is beautiful. Your stitching makes me wish I could work on mine.

Congrats on your milestones.

Joanna said...

Those numbers are amazing. If you were a CEO you'd be getting a big, fat bonus. 514 friendly followers is really nice.

Loralynn said...

That's a huge number! I can see why though, I always love to see what you have been up to, even if I don't always make a comment. Your tree looks wonderful!

Jessica @BeforeTheDawn said...

Wow at the numbers!

Lovely tree! We just put ours up (a real one) but I will wait until tomorrow to decorate it.

I have one cross stitched ornament, made by a family member. I have none of mine anymore, I ended up giving them all away as gifts. They were all little Christmas charts I found at the craft store. Wish I had kept the charts!

Blessings from Jessica

Clare - Aimetu said...

Meari said...

Your tree looks great!

Anne R said...

Well I can only speak for myself - I love reading your blog because it reminds me of the days when I actually had time to stitch. Now, it's too far between each hour, so I live precariously (sp?) through you. Thanks for making that possible! :D

And btw, do your sitemeter also count all the readers you have through Google Reader, or only the ones that actually "show up" at your blog? Because if it doesn't count Reader, you can probably guess at a MUCH higher reading rate than that ;)

Carol said...

Congratulations on 500+ followers, Sharon--that is absolutely huge!!

I used to give away all of my ornaments, too, but I've started keeping more just for me. After the past couple of years, my tree is really looking quite filled with them and they make me so proud :) Maybe you could try keeping every other one that you make just for you?

Parsley said...

WOW! That's wonderful!!

Rachel S said...

Congratulations!

Roberta said...
