When I first started it two years ago as a way of keeping my mind active and fighting against the cognitive problems associated with my multiple sclerosis I never dreamt how important it would become in my life.
Through it I have made wonderful new friends. I feel so lucky to be part of a group of exceptional women - amazing, supportive, kind, creative kindred spirits. It's like being part of a special club, which most non-bloggers don't understand.
It led me to Christine of MacDonald's Patch. It turned out we only lived five minutes apart and she has become a truly valued friend. I wouldn't even think of going to a quilt show without Christine, she makes the places we go together so much fun.
Christine introduced me to the North of the Yarra Quilting Guild. I adore these women and NOTY sit and sew sessions have become one of the highlights of my week.
I've connected with fellow bloggers/quilters from all over the world. I've sent swap parcels to the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, France and all over Australia.
And amazingly people have visited my humble little blog over 250,000 times.
Thank you all so much.PS I will be having a giveaway to celebrate - just got to work out what the prize will be.
