Guest book of Angel Kisses

I am taking a wonderful idea that a friend had and making a run with it. (thanks Tracy... hope you don't mind me borrowing your idea.)

I would like to extend a welcome to all visitors to this blog.
I enjoy knowing that my needlework is inspiring enough for you to visit me.

I invite you to leave a comment (ANGEL KISSES) on this post to introduce yourself and let me know why you enjoy my blog or how it inspires you.

It is really interesting to me to see where everyone is from and what they are working on as well... So don't be surprised if I leave you a comment (ANGEL KISS) on your blog as well....

May you receive many Angel kisses from all!!!

I love that you are using this idea, I hope that others will follow and we will sign each other's guest books.

I've been coming to this blog for several months now and enjoy your stitching and your social interaction. I was pleasantly surprised to find out you were practically right next door.

This is a very great idea and I'm glad that you are doing this.

I have known you ever since we did our very first stitching exchange and you are like the Sister that I never ever had and you are one of my very best friends that I have ever had in my life. You have always been there for me and I've been there for you as well. You Inspire me with your Stitching and you keep me going when I get down due to life.

I cherish our Friendship with each other and that we are able to stay in touch thanks to the Internet since I live so far away from you.

You will always be my best friend.

Carolyn said...

This is a neat idea.

I learned about your blog after you had left a comment on my blog. I like seeing the progress on your wizard. I look forward to each of your posts.

Wendy said...

I always like to read about other stichers projects and take a look at the pictures of their work. It makes me going on with my own projects and remembers me cross stitching is fun!

I'm a recent reader, but I love blogs like yours because they help keep me motivated to try new things and even sometimes finish them. ;)

Margie said...

Hi Dawn!

I am in Tucson, AZ ... so not far from you ~ I have only been blogging since May of this year. But you are one of the first stiching bloggers that I met after starting my blog. I have always loved reading your blog & watching your progress with your pieces ~ knowing exactly what you were going thru with that rough spot. We both follow each others blogs & always comment. I thank you so much for all of your encouragement ~ it means so much to me. Since we are not far from each other, I hope we get to meet someday!

HUGS,
Margie

Carolyn NC said...

I really thought I'd already signed this, but I guess not. I've known you from a couple of groups online and I always enjoy reading your blog and your posts. I admire your attitude in life and how you deal with it all (& still manage to get some stitching time in!)

Belinda said...

Hi, my name is Belinda and I just wanted to tell you that your wizard is beautiful!

Carolyn NC said...

Dawn, I tagged you - see my blog for details!

huskergirl said...

My name is Dennise and I'm from San Angelo, TX. Your wizard looks fantastic!! It is encouraging to see what others have finished stitching because it reminds me that 'yes, I can finish things too!' which sometimes I forget!

Bette said...

Dawn, your sweet spirit always shines out in your blogging and stitching. I hope we meet in person soon.

J Rae said...

I've enjoyed watching your wizard develop and getting to know you over the last few months.

Thanks for the Angel Kisses you have left for me along the way. Consider this a Rae of Sun for you. :-)

This is a great idea. I like your blog because your stitching is amazing. I also like your positive spirit even when things are tough. You are very kind to everyone and you spread joy to everyone who reads your blog. I just noticed you have a Daily Bible Verse. I like that.

Laura said...

Hi! Iam Laura and have five beautiful kids in Bedford, NH. When the LNS went out of business here in Bedford,NH in less than one year, plus it was only 5 minutes away from me-itwas heartbreaking. Cross stitching was the one needlework activity that I was good at. My mother was a fabulous seamstress so I wanted a little needlework hobby of my own and when I discovered cross stitch as a teen, I loved it. Few years back, I was almost hired at another LNS but the owner had health issues so I never did get to work there. I met Carol (Carol's Garden of Stitches) at the LNS that had just closed. I missed the fellowship I have had with stitchers and then I saw Carol's blog and loved how she was meeting people from all over the world through her blog. Then I found your blog and was delighted that I found some things in common interest.That inspired me to start my own blog "The streets of Gold". It got off to a slow start but I hope I get better in time. Your stitching keeps me inspired and I feel I haven't lost the fellowship of stitchers.
Laura

Barbara said...

I love looking at your stitching projects, Dawn. We are both in the bbinteractive yahoo group & maybe even others (not sure). I get so many good ideas by looking through all the vast amount of blogs. Now if I could stitch while browsing, I'd have the best of both worlds. ;D

Chiloe said...

Hi there

Chiloe speaking !!! You enter my giveaway and only today I'm taking time to check the blog from people who entered my giveaway (too busy before with the move ...) That's also why I did a giveaway : to "meet" new persons through their blog. I also saw you some time commenting on people blog.

I'm still checking your blog but just wanted to wish you a merry christmas . Hope you all have a beautiful day.

DUSTY said...

I am fairly new to the blogging community, but I do enjoy visits to yours. Your stitching is lovely. I love your christmas work outfit !!! Where do you work ?? It has to be with children or the elderly, am I right ??? Happy New Year to you and your family.
Take care,
Dusty

Sharon said...

Hi, I visit your blog quite often but shame on me I don't comment as much as I should. I do love your stitching and always enjoy reading your blog posts. I am from New York, this year I will be a better blogger. :) happy new year to you and yours. xoxo

Char Smith said...

I love watching your works in progress. I'm often teased about believing that what you are doing/who you are with at midnight is what the coming year holds. So often it's true, I had all my bills up to date this year for a first and hope it holds true. LOL

Keep stitching, your work is wonderful and some so cute.
HUGS,
Char

Janice said...

Hey Girl!!! Happy New Year!!! BIG BIG HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't think I know you??!?!?! LOL You are a doll and I am your friend from KY. I don't know how long we have known each other??? Since I first started cross stitching, 2004 maybe. 5 years!! Here's wishing you a blessed, joyous New Year!! Happy Stitching my dear angel!!!

mrsfroggie1970 said...

I've had your blog in my Google Reader for a few weeks and I'm really enjoying it. I'm a Mum to two boys aged 8 and 5.5 and I work full time as a primary teacher. I live in Brisbane Australia where right now it is good weather in stay in the air conditioning out of the heat and stitch. I"m working on a Tropical Vacation Window which I can't show on my blog because it is going to be a present for someone who reads it but I will try to post some pics of other projects tomorrow

Hi,

I'm Wendy from Belgium, I did watch your blog several times. You make wonderfull things. It's so nice to see other peoples beautiful handcrafts, I really enjoy reading blogs. Especially the ornaments, you don't see this in Belgium, I might try to make some of them. I love to do all kinds of creative things.
I will visit your blog again.

Your organizing looks great! You have to love those plastic cabinets with drawers. I have a small xs room and it has a regular size bed in it for company. I cringe when someone wants to stay for the night LOL If it's a stitcher, she will know how to "act" in my xs room, other people tend to get lost in there LOL Your kiddos are adorable! I enjoyed looking thru your blog. I think we all get ideas from others and fit them into our lives. JanetTX :) texasgirl@consolidated.net

Cynimin said...

Great idea! Love your organization. My goal this year is to get organized also and you've given me some nice ideas. Thanks!

lifeasme said...

Hiya
This is a lovely idea...mind if I use it on my blog too? Get lots of visitors and i'm curious as to what keeps them there, how the get there (regardless of trackers) and why they come back!

Well I am Debs, mum to four kids, nanna to two and third on the way. I work from home designing scrapbook projects and teaching them. I am writing my first book on my life trials and how i got thro them and i just LOVE blogs, my own and others!

I have been a cross stitcher since i was around 10 or so but having done any recently cos i think i've overloaded myself a little! But i'm sure my plate can grow with the right inspiration and boy do you have it here!!!

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Debs

Cindy said...

Great idea! I am new to visiting your blog and I love it! I too am a cross stitcher! I am from Texas. I would love for you to visit my blog as well!

becky said...

I am just now going back through all the emails I want to leave comments on. Have never been on your site before, but I really like what I see. Sorry about the loss of your job, my husband just lost his on Feb. 2nd. And I'm still on Workmens' Comp.
I love going into everyone's web pages and leaving messages or just lurking. Which is a bad thing then I find something I like.

CJ said...

What a wonderful idea. I just love reading blogs, especially fellow stitcher blogs. I am living in Texas with my hubby, 3kids and dog. Currently working on a Blue Ribbon Design pattern called "Stop and Stitch The Flowers". Just received the material to start a Gazette 94 SAL and My Big Toe "The Lord's Prayer". That should keep me busy for the summer.

Hi Dawn, your blog is so nice and I enjoy seeing what fellow stitchers are working on. I'm just getting started at blogging and hoping I'm not just talking to myself!

I just connected with you immediately. I'm not even sure how I found your blog, likely due to the stitching connection. Our private email conversations have always been very inspiring and supportive and you've brought sunshine and joy to my life Dawn!

I have enjoyed reading your blog for the first time and know I will return often to see the progress and soak up the positive. The receiving blanket for your co-worker is so cute; and a very sweet thing for you to do, I'm sure she will think of you everytime she uses it.
Thank you for sharing your positive energy and blog with us all.

Chars said...

Hi :) I have been visiting for a bit... since joining stitching bloggers :) So thats a few months :)

I am 38 and live in Exmouth Western Australia... I have 7 children and 2 step-children. I don't get as much stitching time as I would like as I am way too busy with life and my other hobbies... my long suffering husband really would love it if I picked one hobby and stuck to it! LOL

debbie said...

Hello Dawn,
I am new to your blog and just wanted to say hello
I use to love to cross stitch before my eyes got into trouble.....I just loved to cross stitch but now I just love to see other people's work and look for needlepoint or cross stitch projects completed at thrift shops and garage sales...I can't imagine anyone wanting to give their work away or give away a cross stitch that someone else has done for them but I will buy them and they come to a good home. I will treasure them always.
looking forward to getting to know you
you are a very beautiful lady
happy fathers day to the men in your life especially your Heavenly Father
hugs
debbie

FayeRaye said...

Hello from NC!~ I enjoy reading your blog and thanks so much for the "going green" link...That was my 2009 promise to myself..I see now even more ways to improve with green..I enjoy stitching samplers. My most recent finishes have been La-D-Da and LHN though. Now that I am back home from a summer away (I work with the schools..), I plan on getting back with Mary Wigham and the likes in my basket. I enjoy 36 and 40 ct although I am in 2 exchanges that want you to use 32ct...Just an easy going person and meeting other stitchers is 2 of my most prominent characteristics..Keep up the great work!
