I reached a bit of a milestone last week, 10,000 hits on my blog and 100 blog posts, wow! To top it off, I also received a lovely comment from another blogger and lampshade-maker, Mrs Mcindoe, who wrote:
I love your blog – love the design, love your writing style and love your lampshades AND house pictures! And so I am nominating you for a Versatile Blogger Award!
So, thank you Mrs Mcindoe, and thank you everyone else who has ever read my blog. I started writing it to motivate myself and it’s become a record of how gilhoolie has evolved over the last year and a half. From dreams of screen-printing my own fabric and making lampshades to sewing bean-bags and bags, to drawing house portraits, to machine embroidery, and then back round to lampshades. (I could have saved a lot of time by just sticking to lampshades but it’s been a journey and still is a learning experience for me, which is great, otherwise I’d get bored and go back to the office job!)
Here’s to another 10,000 hits and 100 blog posts then, better get writing!…
