The WordPress annual report just showed up in my inbox.
I am speechless.
There were over 290,000 visits to this blog in 2013!
That’s about 800 per day….incredible!
And you are reading this blog from 179 countries all over the world…
(from some countries I have never heard of)…..even more incredible!
Thank you to each and every one of you for making my “job” so much fun!
Sewfordough will be five years old this coming April.
I didn’t really intend to start a blog and three years after I started, I wrote a post about that called, “Celebrate With Me…It’s Free!”
And this post tells about my father who taught me how to sew.
It is inspiring to see which posts you look at each day.
And I love getting your emails, questions and comments.
Keep them coming!
Oh, and before I close out the year, I just want to let you all know that my husband and I are going to be grandparents, for the first time, this coming June!
We’re so excited!!!
So, any tips you have on sewing for grandkids or how to be a good grandma, will be totally appreciated!!!
I hope you and your family have a very blessed New Year filled with God’s richest blessings!
Congratulations on your expected grandbaby! Happy New Year to you and your family and, once again THANK YOU for sharing your wealth of knowledge with all of us, near and far!
Thanks, Sharon! I hope you and your family had a great Christmas and I hope you are enjoying new and fun sewing projects!
We should be thanking you! You do a great service and teach so much. Thank you for sharing all you know, in such a great way. I hope to see many, many more lessons this coming year! 🙂
Thanks Theresa! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!
Congratulations on soon-to-becoming a grandma! I just became a grandma for the third time. The best advice I can give is to LOVE them and not BUY them. True love will get you much further in the long run. I have just finished making a soft ABC book for my youngest granddaughter. I made one for my daughter over 30 years ago and this time it was so much easier with all the cute iron-on patches that are available! I also have made her a security blanket with a teddy bear head and a tiny cabbage patch kid – with the pre-made head – really turned out cute. It is so much fun making her things that will last!
Congrats again! Linn
I love your advice, Linnea. Thank you! I would like to see your finished projects. If you have a minute, send me a photo. Thanks!
Grandmas are so important, influential, and special. My daughter’s “Ga Ga” used to ‘babysit’ her and they would be up at 2 AM chewing bubblegum and watching cartoons.. my kid was 3, she’s now 14 and still remembers that!!
Haha! That’s a great story. Two in the morning? Not sure I can stay up that late. Thanks for sharing that. Those are precious memories for your daughter!
