Welcome...to Trudy's Friends...and Thanks a bunch, Trudy!


I was so surprised to find out I had won Trudy's sewing blog giveaway, because I only commented just to let her know I do like her blog and check it regularly.  I'm not much of a blogger, but thanks to her advice, I finally got counters on my blogs and can now tell that I have visitors and when.  I thought nobody ever checked my blog and was about to give up blogging all together...and just get back to sewing!  If you are visiting, because she mentioned me, then all I can say is, "Welcome!..and Howdy!"  Just last night, I about had a fit when I saw all the visitors and where they were coming from.  Wow...I'm just stunned!  And Hello to whoever the new follower is...you are one of the few...the proud...and except for Trudy..the ONLY public follower and I hope you enjoy my posts!

I met Trudy at our church here in Magnolia, Tx and the first thing she did was bring me a really cute retro-apron she was working on.  She wanted some sewing advice because she was stuck on something.  I'm not sure how she found out I was one of our church's regular seamstresses..unless I was packing some sewing project with me (I usually do :o), but I was glad to talk with her.  She said she was new at sewing but if that was the case I was surprised...she picked out a pretty tough apron to start on, and it turned out beautifully.

Trudy, thanks for including me on your sewing blog! If it was up to me, I probably would not get any visitors.  I spend a lot of time sewing and relatively little time blogging.  I'm so glad to have a sewing friend at church because it gives us a chance to talk shop.  Thanks for encouraging me and giving me tips on how to 'get out there'.  You are a very good seamstress and an even better blogger!  Making friends is a talent too...and Trudy is very good at that.

And Trudy, Thank you again, for having the drawing!  Hmm...I wonder what fabric this will be?!  You have a very nice stash!!  Winning the drawing was such a blessing to me because our family is on a pretty tight budget. It's one of the biggest reasons that I started sewing so much.  If I can figure out how to make it..I'm sure not going to buy it!




I would have emailed you sooner, but I'm swamped with sewing angel's wings and king's collars for our church Nativity..and am praying to have a bit of time to make some candles in time for the Christmas market this Sunday.  And I did that last post on easy aprons because I woke up feeling guilty for posting a project that was cheap..but not easy. The first apron post will appeal to my sewing friends, because we want to make a cute apron with fabric on hand, but my second post is my gift to my newbie sewing friends who want to sew something...anything..if it isn't too hard!

Blessings to all of you...I've been enjoying your comments on Sewing with Trudy and you seem like a really nice bunch of ladies.

You are welcome. I'm glad you won. I know you will put the fabric to good use.

So glad you didn't give up blogging because I think you can help a lot of people with your blog. You have a lot of excellent posts. I know I will learn a lot from you, actually, already have. Keep up the good work.

Donna, one other thing. You may want to consider getting a world map and maybe a Feejit. You can click on the ones on my blog. It's really fun to see the map fill up and see where people are coming from, literally from all over the world. If you click on my map, the numbers are impressive. There are over 50 countries represented. I've actually made friends with several of them. I specifically have some dear friends in France and Japan. My life has truely been enriched.

Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
