Knock Knock

Who's there?

It's me, Andrea!!

Shall I try and explain my long absence or should we just sweep it under the rug and move on like nothing happened?

Everyone is doing Floss Tube and that is just never (probably never) going to happen for me...but I sorta have an itch to share again, so.....

(Having trouble figuring out how to upload photos from my iPad, so that's an issue. The one above was the only one it would pull up....threads for a future project.)

So...thoughts? Anyone still out there reading blogs?

OMG... I am so happy to see you post again. I've kept your blog on my blog roll just in case you ever came back. I loved all the stitching you did and hope that there was more to see some day. Lots of us are still reading blogs and would love to see you again! Take care!

Beth said...

I'm still reading. Post as often as the spirit moves you.

Blogs are it for me. No Facebook etc. blogs are so much more personal - so glad to see you back.

Sandra said...

Hi Andrea, good to see you back. As you see I still read blogs and don't do all the other stuff, too time consuming.

Look forward to more posts. Sandra x

Maggie said...

Welcome back!
I still prefer blogging and blog reading over all the other mediums, although I do watch the occasional podcast, don't particularly like floss tubes though.

Sue said...

I still like reading blogs though don't post a lot on mine these days, but it's lovely to see you back x

Nicole said...

Hi Andrea! I'm still reading! I used to use blogpress for my ipad, not sure if that's still out there or not, but it does make it easy for uploading pictures and things.

Vickie said...

Welcome back! I don't do any other stuff, just blogging. Keep coming back now. ;)

Glenna said...

Hi! I think about coming back from time to time too. I like Instagram but not really facebook for sharing. We're reading if you're posting!

Robin in Virginia said...

Hi Andrea! Welcome back! I am still reading blogs as I don't do the others. I look forward to seeing what you have been stitching and/or plan on stitching.

Anne L said...

Good to see you back. Love your cross stitch and your adorable dogs!

Christina said...

Lovely to see you back, Andrea! Your blog is one of the first that I followed, back in the day! 😉 I follow a few people on floss tube, but don't think it's something I would ever do myself. I occasionally post to my blog after a long absence. It's still something I enjoy.

wranglerkate said...

Welcome back! I love reading blogs.

valerie said...

Welcome back! I haven't the time or energy for FlossTube so I still hang out on blogs but added some FB and IG into the mix.

Vonna Pfeiffer said...

I'm reading and still posting, if you care 😊

Andrea said...

Oh, Polka Dot Chicken Blog!
Thanks so much, you were one of my favorites! I need to catch up :)

Andrea said...

Thanks Beth, I'm going to try!

Andrea said...

Thanks so much!

Andrea said...

Hi Sandra! Happy to see you!
Thanks for your encouragement :)

Andrea said...

Thanks Maggie!
I used to think blogging was time consuming but with taking photographs being so easy now, it seems like it will be faster.
Thanks for reading!

Andrea said...

Thanks Sue!I'm going to try and catch up on blogs soon, I have missed it!

Andrea said...

Thanks Connie!

Andrea said...

Thanks Nicole, I'll look into that. Your floss tube channel is my very favorite, as I've told you :)

Andrea said...

Thank you Vickie,I'll check your blog out!

Andrea said...

Hi Glenna! Instagram is fun, so quick and easy!

Andrea said...

Thanks Robin!

Andrea said...

Aw, thanks Anne! I'll have to catch everyone up on our doggies too ;)

Andrea said...

Thanks so much Christina, I remember you, need to catch up on your blog!
I admire the Floss Tube ladies that make it seem so natural ...but feel pretty certain it wouldn't be so easy for me, ha!

Andrea said...

Thanks!

Andrea said...

Hi Valerie! I felt the same about FlossTube but my friend Patti kept talking to me about different episodes she's seen and it drew me in. But there are just a few that I follow, and "watch" while I stich.
I see you on FB and am so happy for you :)

Andrea said...

Yay! Queen Vonna!!
I need to catch up on blogs!

Blogging is good. :D Good to see you posting again! I've thought about doing a knitting podcast, but I know it's just not me. I hate seeing myself on camera, hate hearing myself talk. How can I possibly do a podcast? Do what you feel comfy with! (Look at how many people commented! I think blogging is good!)

Andrea said...

Hi Margaret!
Same exact feelings here....a podcast video from me would never make it past the editing phase, just wouldn't be able to stand myself!
Have peeked at your blog occasionally to see what you're up too...but couldn't figure out my Google log in info so couldn't comment!

Joy said...

I am! I want to post on mine, but time and what to say seem to get in the way. I too have trouble with how to sign in, etc. Be well my friend.

Rowyn said...

I still read blogs, and post to mine occasionally. Would love to see your latest stitchings.

Sweet Sue said...

nice to see you posting andrea, happy easter! my blog is dormant, but i still enjoy following bloggers:)

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

I love reading a blog WITHOUT ADS AND POP-UPS!!! I'm going to start following you.

Sue J said...

I'm all for blogs!

BitsAndPieces said...

Hi Andrea!
And the answer is YES!
I am trying to keep my blog
going.
It's more of an online
journal for my own enjoyment,
since readers are few and do
not comment.

Samplings from Spring Creek said...

Yes we are still here and am glad you are also! Some FlossTube I enjoy watching but seeing and hearing myself on FlossTube isn't going to happen!

Carol said...

Still here :) I'm like you, Andrea, can't imagine myself on Floss Tube--just too shy! But, I do enjoy watching a few channels. Glad to see you re-entering the blogging world!
