Hip Hip Hooray…

… the blog turns three today!!!

By some odd chance of fate (the strangest coincidences keep happening to me lately – something in the air?), this lovely lady asked me yesterday how long I had been blogging. It occurred to me later that my ‘bloggiversary’ (cripes I hate that word!) must be sometime around now, and lo and behold, May 28 is it. Yep, I’ve been rabbiting on for lo these 36 months now. So Happy Birthday blog!


Now like all good crafty bloggers, I’m giving the birthday gifty to you 🙂 Readers-slash-commenters bring the life to a blog, and I am so grateful to those of you who have hung around, especially over the last angst-ridden, sparsely-updated twelve months or so. Niamh and I have assembled this pretty little palette of Sugarlemon hand-dyed embroidery floss. All you need to do is delurk, tell me I’m Ace (or not!), and one random person scoops the lot.

Also, we made Birthday Scroggin. I can’t guarantee there’ll be any of that left when the time comes to send off the floss though :giggle:


(Actually, the Scroggin has nothing to do with the bloggiversary, but it is very festive, don’t you think? Inspired by an old Kiddley post. Yum).

(Oh yes, and smilies still not fixed. Gosh I’m lazy!)

  1. Happy Blogiversary! I found your blog a few weeks ago through Google Reader’s recommendation feature, but I don’t think I’ve commented before. The prospect of winning those GORGEOUS threads got me to delurk LOL.

  2. Happy Anniversary!! Hope to see a lot more from you.

  3. Well, I don’t know whether you could say I’m de-lurking … although I do tend to lurk more than comment these days when I do a fly-by reading of blogs … but I have to say those threads look absolutely scrummy!! As does your latest biscornu 🙂 Happy blogiversary!! 😀

  4. Don’t worry, you are not the only busy Mum on the planet that has been slacking…I’m right there with you! Happy 3rd year of blogging! (I hate blogiversary too!) Those threads look marvelous… 🙂

  5. Happy Bloggiversary! And OMG those are the most delicious looking fibres ever! Congrats!

  6. OK, you’re ACE lol.

    You made me wonder when my bloggiversary is – it was 1st Feb. Oh well, maybe next year I’ll remember 😆

  7. Hehe, the same thing happened to me earlier this year. A favourite blog of mine had its ‘blogiversary’ (I agree that it’s a horrible word!) and that got me wondering when my blog had been started. Sure enough, it was in two days time! I’m not talented enough to offer yummy treasuers though.

  8. Love to read your blog! The threads are beautiful. Good choices. Your kids are so cute also. Love that biscornu that was pictured.


  9. Happy Bloggiverdary 🙂
    Your threads look fantastic.

  10. 3 years- wow – congrats!

    Did you really dye that floss yourself!? It’s beautiful!

  11. Congratulations Mel!

  12. Congratulations!!!
    Ooohh, now I feel a tiny bit like a celebrity!
    I am impressed with your birthday post, such lovely thread. I would imagine dyeing anything is pretty diabolical with little people around.
    With your last post, I learnt what a biscornu was, because I didn’t know and had to google the word and find out. I am guessing all your other readers were in the know.
    I think I may have run out of things to say by the time I get to 3 years, my blog is about to turn 6 months.

  13. Will delurk for thread!

  14. I often drop by as I love reading your site. Congratulations on the anniversary of your blog 😛


  15. Happy Blog Birthday!

    I’m just catching up on all my blog reading so am a little late to the party.

  16. Happy Birthday Melanie’s Blog! Wow, three years. Time sure does pass quickly.

  17. Sorry I missed the anniversary of your blog. It’s amazing how quickly those three years have passed, isn’t it? I still remember when I stumbled across your blog. That was before you were pregnant with Niamh, I think!
