:: a Thank You ::
Ahhhhh you, you, you!!! Yes, you, I am pointing my crochet hook in your direction! You get me so overwhelmed sometimes, do you know that??
Lordy, do you realise that every time you take a weeny bit of a moment out of your busy day to sit and type a few words into that comments box, you are sending me on a roller coaster of feel-good emotion? Its quite a dizzy experience for someone like me who normally keeps head down and feet on the ground. Oh, but I wouldn't have it any other way my friends. You are delightful, you lift my days up to dizzy happy places with your compliments and enthusiasm and feel-good.
Thank you so very much for all the crochet-love that you showered me with yesterday, both here in Blogland, and over at Flickrville too. Last I looked there were more than 150 comments, now thats an awful lot of dizzy appreciation for one smallish, square bit of crochet!
And let me tell you, in case you just might doubt it, I do always read every single comment that comes my way. Every. Single. One. Typepad very kindly generates a separate email for each comment you leave, and so there is no danger of me missing a single one. I sit with a cuppa and read every word, every exclamation, every sentence. And if you inhabit Blogland and leave a bloggy address with your comment, then I visit with you too. Don't always have time to leave comments these days, (although I do try), but I nosey in your windows, peek at your projects and enjoy your comings and goings.
:: a Request ::
I know from your comments, emails, and blogs that there are many of you who've made (or are currently making) Attic24-inspired crochet projects.
There are waaaaaay too many for me to keep a track of these days.
So I was a-wondering.....if you've been inspired by the projects you've seen here and have given it a go yourself, how about a little sharing??
I have to confess I did have a little go at trying to include a fancy widget thing in this post where we could create a list of links. But I am not geeky enough to be able to work it out and gave up trying. So I thought perhaps I could simply request that you leave a little comment at the end of this post, including a link to any blog posts or Flickr pics of crochet projects, either completed or WiPs. I know that many Attic24-stylie bags have been created, jam jar jackets, hexagon blankies, Summer Garden squares and many many flowers...and I would very, very much like to see them.
Thank you so much, I can't wait to hear from you.
You are, quite simply, Awesome. The whole lovely lot of you.
Thank you for being my friend.
