I'm Taking Your Advice

I have read and re-read every comment that was left on my last post.  You have all touched me with your heart-felt advice and encouragement.  Thank you for each word you wrote to me.

Thank you to my real-life friends that follow my blog, even though you know what a simple soul I am in real life.  You're all treasures to me.

Thank you, my precious daughter, Heather.  The sweet words you took the time to send me from "way up north" brought tears to my eyes. I love you!

And thank you, to all my blog friends that came out of hiding long enough to leave me your much appreciated comments when I asked for your help.  You'll never know how much your kind words mean to me.

And yes, the Happy Valentine will joyfully continue!  I don't plan to ever stop blogging.  I was just having thoughts of making it a private blog just for me.  But if my simple words and pictures can bring a little joy to others, I'm more than happy to share it.  I'll take everyone's advice and just ignore the changing numbers of followers...well I'll try my best.

Thank you friends, for all your kind words.

And, true to my word, I was sewing while waiting on, and reading all your comments!  I finished putting my little table cover together and have got it all layered up, basted together, and stretched out into my quilting frame.  I look forward to many happy-quilty spring evenings.  Who knows?  It may even keep my sleepy eyes open when sweet hubby and I settle down in front of the tv to watch a little Andy Griffith. ;)


  1. I love the bright colors.This could bring sunshine on the darkest day and a smile to my face.

  2. Dear Sherry,
    Take "The Followers" OFF your Blog... It's an add-on, eh. Then it would bother you ;)
    Warm greetings,

    I could in-vision this table top beauty on my table.
    I ADORE the way you put it together. SO so talented.
    Happy Monday my friend.
    Love Claudie

  10. Happy to hear I will be seeing more Happy Valentine posts :)

  11. Hi Sherry, so glad you decided to hang around with the rest of us. In this day and age, being a simple, honest, beautiful soul is absolutely necessary. Don't ever downplay your contribution to the world. Everyone has a place and yours is to spread the joy of a simple life. Are you piecing this by hand? I wish I could sew, but I have litlte patience for tedious hand work. Long running stitches is about all I can handle these days. I used to love to watch Nick at Nite while I ate a big bowl of cream of wheat. Yum! I'm a simple girl too. :) Wishing you all the best, Tammy

  12. The quilt is so nice. Enjoy the many hours of love that you apply to it in stitches.

  13. Hi Sherrie! I too have thought as you, but then some lovely Blogpal stops by that hasn't commented in a while and mentions something so far back in post...well...LOL I guess this is a way to talk to yourself and no one thinks anything about it..somebody will answer you. My router is acting up so I hav en't been able to stay on for any length of time and keeping an eye on my parents...I pop in, but can't always leave a comment. Please know your blog is a bright spot in my hectic day...and night too. ;)

  14. Hi! I found you at Skip to My Lou. What a beautiful quilt!! I adore the colors!!!

  15. I just found your blog, but I had to comment on your bright, beautiful quilt. This is such a cheery color combination, and I love it!!


I'm so happy you're leaving me a comment! ~ Sherry
