WOW one year, Congratulations my fellow stitcher!
I tend to follow blogs which have stitching oriented topics simply to learn, and see what other stitchers are working on and how they choose to finish off their work.
Be always in stitches.

hello Gracie - I would love to take part in your giveaway.

I follow your blog partly because I love dragonflies, and then I realised you do some beautiful stitching work, but I have stayed with your blog because you are a very kind and friendly blogger. I didn't realise you Radha only had your blog a a year. Congratulations :-)
