Thank You! My First 'Blogoversary!'

Happy Birthday Pictures, Images and Photos

Thank you for popping over to 'Mrs Twins' today!  I'm so happy you can join me.

Well the candles are lit,

Champagne Pictures, Images and Photos

The Champagne has popped!  Join me in celebrating my very First 'Blogoversary!'.

What does one do for their 'Blogoversary?'.  I suppose look back to when it first started. Kate 'The Garden Bell' started just before me.  But what did I have to write about?  'Mindless Ramblings' have taken over and now I'm very pleased to say I am celebrating a full one years blogging on 'Mrs Twins'.  Who would have thought that?  

Every week I'm here sitting in my Kitchen with a cup of tea and lap top on the table talking  to my Friends all over the World.  Swapping daily news, enjoying what we've been Crocheting.  Chatting about what we've just come across on Flickr, oh....what  a Wonderful time we have.

You've shared my worries, helped me with internet problems and got on board with an idea I had back in January.  'Blankets for the Elderly' folk in the UK.  You've come up with ideas, you've sent me Squares, you've commented on my Flickr photos, you've commented on my SIBOL Blankets. 

So what do I do now........  I say a 'Big Thank You'  from the bottom of my heart.

You have not only made my days enjoyable, you've helped me make a dream come true.  In Memory of My Grandmother we 'between us' Friends all over the World are united in doing something wonderful  and worthwhile for the Elderly' making  28 SIBOL Blankets 700 Squares in total.

I cannot thank you all enough for the continued support on 'Mrs Twins', 'SIBOL', and 'SIBOL - The Archive' It's so nice to have met you all!

Our 28 SIBOLS! 700 Squares from SIBOLETTES all over the World! Thank You!

My dear Friends celebrate my 'First Blogoversary' with me, but let's congratulate each other on what we have achieved! I thank you all for
your friendship! Thanks for joining me on my Big Day!

Now for the second part of this story you must pop over to SIBOL.


  1. Happy First Anniversary Sue! What an amazing year you have had. You have inspired so many with your generousity and talent with yarn. I am excited to see what your next year will have in store! Elizabeth

  2. Blog on, my friend. Hasn't this been an amazing journey this past year. Who says you can't live life at our ages. We are all so young at heart, so close in our minds, but still way too many miles apart. You and all have touched my more dearly than words can express this year.

    I have one last word about all those blankets....



    And remember I have the honor of being your first follower as you were mine. No one can take that from us ever. I will always come by for a visit to see where your journey will take you next.

  3. Happy 1st Blogoversary Sue. Wishing you everything happy. :)
