"Blessed" -Three Year IG Anniversary Chart Freebie

 A very good morning to you, my friends.  This post  is a day late and a dollar short. What do I mean by that ? Well I was supposed to post this in September of last year.  For the last couple of years, I have posted a "Blessed " Chart in celebration of my Anniversary on Instagram and though the post was ready to go, I failed to publish it.  So here it is - A Day Late and A Dollar Short! 😀

Any whoo, September, 26, 2022 was my  Three  Year anniversary of being on Instagram. Lol Well , I know that is not an earth shattering day to celebrate , but I look for any reason to have a grand  day. 

My very first post was in 2019.  I had already decorated for Halloween and I just took a snapshot of a display in my hall . With butterflies in my stomach, I took the plunge and posted. Oh, boy was I scared. I have told the story before , but my daughter  jokingly said "I'm sure there is someone out there like you". 😂😀  

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

For the last two years , I have celebrated this day , by sharing a "Blessed " chart.  Why? Well because of you!  You make me feel so blessed!  I have made many friends on Instagram and my blog and though we have never met in person; you have brought so much joy into my life.   Everyone that I have chatted with online has been so very kind and supportive and that means more than mere words can express. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Let me show you my  previous "Blessed " charts.

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

  16. We are all blessed to be your blog and Instagram friend. I love having instagram to keep a record of my stitching. I can easily find something if I want to show a piece to my friend.( they are probably thinking, how many cross stitch pictures does one have to look at???) My sympathies to you on losing your sister. My mother recently passed away and we are in the process of cleaning out her house. A bittersweet chore for sure. However I did find a nice piece I had done for Mother and Daddy back in the 80s. It is an old country house....now it is hanging on my gallery wall at Grimmwood. I think all of us needleworkers are blessed to have such a nice community of friends online.

    1. Oh thank you so much, Arlene. I am blessed to have you as a friend as well. Lol I could look at cross stitching and quilts all day. I guess only us stitchers get it , but it is our passion. I refer back to my IG photos all the time for I forget what I have stitched. I am so sorry to here about the passing of your dear mom. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure the clean out can be overwhelming at times from all of the fond memories that are brought back. I am sure your mom is smiling down from heaven and is happy that you brought the stitched piece back to your home to enjoy. Have a very lovely weekend. Hugs
