I missed my blog birthday. 
I always thought I started blogging in October, but I just checked and it was 26th September 2007. 
That makes me seven.
and a week or so. 
but let's not worry about that. 
better late than never.

so how to mark the occasion? how about a stroll through the photo archives. 
Seven mosaics, of seven things, with seven links.


sewing things


Seven years of feasting, creating, appreciating, and making memories. and friends.

memories and friends. 

thank you for being part of it.
