  1. As I am reading my bookmarked blogs, I am always startled and pleasantly surprised when my name is mentioned. Thank you for the mention. Then when I open my blog and see that so many have visited then I am amazed that so many others will take the time to read what little old me has to write. I may not write as often as I should but I am a faithful reader of stitching blogs…morning coffee would not be the same without my blogs. Thanks again for the mention.

  2. It is my great pleasure to mention you, Sue. I love reading what you have to say, even if you don't speak up often. It's not the folks who talk all the time who have the most to say, anyway.

  3. Yes! I saw some belt buckle blanks a couple of weeks ago and I have been working on a plan ever since. I actually bought some Dimensional Magic last week for this very reason. So excited to see this!

  4. Do let us know how your new NP belt buckles turn out. It's a clever and fun way to wear our art, isn't it?
