Do I look happy???? Post # 1499

Just one more post before the big day.  I've just been waiting for this appropriate moment to post these pictures. It happened several times in Houston and made my heart sing.  Someone would call my name or touch my arm and say the magic words.... "Gerry Krueger, I read your blog every day!" I was grateful when Susie was nearby to get a picture.

This is Sandra Baker from South Carolina who assured me that not only did she read my blog, but all the ladies in her stitching group read it also..






And this is Vicki Register (I hope we got her name right).  She is in a crazy quilt group in Wenatchee, WA...only about 3 hours away.  I would just love to get over and see all of them.
















This lady approached me during the fashion luncheon with those same magic words but we were unable to get her name.... I thought I could enlarge the picture enough to read her name tag but couldn't.... but so happy and grateful that she came forward to let me know that she enjoyed my blog.












In fact I had my picture taken with a lot of people and many times with my quilt....

I spend my stitching time isolated in my little corner of the world and often wonder if anyone is still reading after all these years.  I left Houston feeling really connected and it gave me a burst of new enthusiasm to continue blogging...




And there has to be the picture of myself, Susie and the quilt that made it all happen.

Wouldn't it be nice if one your post #1500, everyone who reads your blog would comment. That would prove that you are not alone and that many, many people love your blog. The photos will make special memories - and you definitely look happy. Very hard not to smile when you are wearing your beautiful, bright vest.

Hello Rose,
I am a new follower, love your work, I too am a crazy quilter and you can find me at www.goodearthquilting.blogspot.com

I am so happy for you to have such a great time. Yes, stitching is very isolated, but good for me as mobility challenges have prompted less activity.

I wanted to tell you that I also followed you on Bloglovin and I couldn't ever leave you a comment.
I read everything!

Yes indeed you do look happy and well you should. What an honor to have people care enough to go out of their way to tell you they care. I like Marilyn's idea about everyone leaving a comment on your 1500th post...then you would have a reminder of all of us that care about you and seek your inspiration.
Deb
