Blessed- Two Year IG Anniversary Chart

 Good morning, my dear friends. Can you guess what today is? Well , Lol I guess you already know with the title of my post ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜€ Today is my 2nd year anniversary of being on Instagram!!! Woo Hoo! .

 I still get butterflies  every time I post on IG ; in fact on my blog too. ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹  I  also still remember to this day when I first told my youngest daughter that I was thinking of getting on IG.  Always the Positive Polly she encouraged me to take the leap and get on social media. "Sure " she said, " You may find people like you". Lol.  

Then I had to break the idea to my hubby. "What would he think?  He politely smiled and said sure that sounds fun. Lol . I know he was thinking "What in the world is she going to post? " To be honest , my intention was not to post at all ,but to look at all of the pretties that was posted on IG and of course soak in all of the inspiration and revel in the enablement.  But then I did it! A little fall post. 

My very first post on Instagram - Sept . 26, 2019

 I was hooked. You know -  I still remember who was my 1st follower.

 Over the last 2 years I have met so many wonderful and supportive stitchers and quilters , and I feel so fortunate to call so many  of you friends. Your positivity, sweet comments and visits send me over the moon. You have seen me through some good times and even through some  tough times and you probably didn't even know it, but your kindness has always kept  me motivated and going.  Such an amazing community. I do feel quite blessed.  

For my 1st year anniversary , I shared this little design called Blessed.

Sept 26, 2020 - 1 year IG Anniversary Post

 If you haven't seen it, just click here and you will magically be transported to a year ago today where you will find the pdf.  

After mulling over what I wanted to share for my 2nd anniversary, I decided I was going to stick to a theme ( Lol. Many of ya'll know I can take to a theme like a dog takes to a bone) So for my 2nd anniversary, I am sharing another Blessed chart.  With this chart, you choose your favorite floss colors, fabric and just go to town stitching. Though not listed on the chart, I used DMC 221, 3371, 3345, and 780. 

It is a small and measures 23 x 71. On 14 count aida that would be around 1 5/8 inches x 5 1/8 inches. You could add a simple border to make it bigger if you want. It would also be a great piece to stitch to use up small scraps.

My humble little designs can never compare to the warmth, love and support that ya'll have given me. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.  I wish I could give you all a big hug . I also want to thank you for being so understanding that I am not tech savvy ; you have indeed had so much patience with me in this learning process.  Thank you for each visit, sweet comments, kind words and click of the like button. I feel so fortunate to be part of this community. As always...

Happy stitching, ya'll


Because of you I laugh a little harder, cry a little less and smile a lot more. 

Hugs and Stitches !!!
