Good Saturday Morning!

Loving sitting here at my desk with the sun streaming beautifully outside my window and very cheerful indeed.  Hope your Saturday is filled with lovely to do lists and satisfying stitching!

I'm working on the final touches of my newsletter to go out on Super Tuesday (March 1st).  Hope you are subscribed (see my website- link above -for instructions on how to receive it).  There is yet another cute freebie tucked inside that I'm sure you will enjoy stitching.

Also, don't forget that there are only two more days to enter for the free Lizzie*Kate chart giveaway posted on February 2nd.  Don't forget to read and follow all of the rules.  I know, I know... I hate rules, too, but the rewards are sweet!

We were lucky to have quite a few SAL entries and stitching shares this month.  Y'all were busy weren't you.  Sigh... and oh yes, ALL the delicious new charts coming out of the Nashville market.  YUM!  I know there are quite  a few that sorely tempt me.  Too bad my pocket book won't accommodate them all.

Well, back to work.  :D
Blessings on you and yours!
Love, hugs & prayers,
Cathryn

Did You Know?

I just read Joyce's blog (link in blogs I follow section) and found out the information below.  What a surprise!  This may explain why many bloggers lost some of their followers.  I hope they find a way back.  :(

Blog Follower Information 

In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs. 

As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other Open Id providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
