Thanks, and thanks.

First, I have to thank two very sweet readers who sent me gifts for my birthday.

Donna sent me a cute little mushroom to add to my collection. The one in the front - isn't he just too cute.

Terry sent me this beautiful bunny thread winder! Another collection I have. I love it!

Many thanks to both of you sweet ladies. And thank you to everyone who sent an email or posted a comment. I'm sorry about the word verification thing - I thought I had it turned off and now I can't figure out how to do it again. :(

Now for the 'and thanks' part. I want to thank all of you who have been loyal readers, whether you comment or not. I've enjoyed this blog over the past five years and I'm going to take some time to go back and read from the beginning soon, but for now I am going to have to back away from blogging for a bit. Both from posting and reading, or at least doing it on a regular basis. I'm not closing my blog and I may throw up a post now and then if I finish a project to share but I won't be posting on any kind of regular basis. (not that I have been lately anyway) This is a hard decision for me, but I feel it is best at the moment. I may stop by and visit a blog now and then if I have time but as for letting my reader accumulate 1000+ unread posts, that is not going to happen. I'm going to mark all read today and after today, if I have time to read a few posts I will, if not, I'll mark them all read and move on to the next day. I will miss each and every one of them but this is just what I have to do for now.

I welcome anyone who wants to stay in touch during my hiatus to send me an email. (can be found in my profile)

Love your sweet birthday gifts! I understand about the non-blogging for awhile. I've considered it myself.

I hope you are staying cool. I stay inside 24/7 with the AC blasting. Holler at me, okay? Love ya!

Hi Tina! I totally understand about needing to take a break from the blogging/reading posts thing. I haven't exactly been faithful myself over the last few months. :)
It's been a joy getting to know you as a blogger and friend. I'll miss your posts. Don't be a stranger and stop by to say "hey" now and then, won't you?
God bless you, my friend!

Tina, I just found your blog and I live near you in the Magnolia, TX area. I love your blog here and hope you may one day come back in and post your beautiful work. I have stopped blogging in my blog too for a time. I have had a little burnout but am stitching on a large reproduction sampler right now. Glad to see another stitcher in my area.
