Who's from where weekend

Gotta run to church for more sewing momentarily, so I don't have time to post much, so I thought I'd do the blogging thing and ask the Big Question:

Who are you guys?

(see how I'm clinging to my Midwest roots? If I were truly acclimated/assimilated to The South, I'd've asked 'Who are y'all?')

I subscribe to the freebie part of Sitemeter, but that just tells me where someone checked in from and how many pages they looked at.

So I'm seeing folks from Really Interesting Places, and my curiosity has totally gotten the best of me now.

Who lives in Surprise, AZ? (that just sounds fun!) Prince Edward Island? (I've wanted to go there ever since I read Anne of Green Gables as a kid)? Someone works at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville...where one of my best buddies from high school spends her work days (but she's not reading the blog).

A few have posted comments enough that I've figured out where they're from, but the majority just leave me wondering, "Wow, who is that? Is it someone I know from Pattern Review/Stitcher's Guild? A friend who got the URL from the Christmas Epistle and now checks in?"

And, sometimes Sitemeter shows the location of the server from which the connection is made, not the location of the person who actually looked at the blog. And AOL users don't show up with a location at all.

So, indulge me this weekend...say 'Hi!' and let me know where're you're coming from. :)


  1. Hi,
    I read your blog in Fort Collins, CO where I'm a sewing psychologist.

  13. Lisa, I'm in Surprise, AZ! And, yes indeedy, it is hot here - maybe 110 today. Surprise is NW of Phoenix, I live in Sun City Grand, one of the Del Webb Sun Cities. Have lived in Arizona for about 35 years.

    Just made a blog, but now I gotta get my things on it! Found you through another blog, I believe. Check out in another week or so for my photos!

  14. Wow, thanks ladies! Some of you I knew (for instance, whenever I see 'Gilmantron, NJ' on the list, I know Summerset has been by!), but it's great to meet some more! Laura M, you show up as being from Coal City; I think we pass not too awfully far from you when we drive up US 41 (sometimes we use Indiana 57) on our way to my parents in Hendricks County.

    It's fun to see where everyone's from...and who the people are that I've wondered about. (So Eithne is the Dublin listing! Glad to meet you! How is your name pronounced?)

    Thanks so much for chiming in, everyone!

  15. Big fat fingers! Summerset shows up as being from NH, not NJ! :rolleyes:

  16. Checking in from Memphis, TN ... I went to Huntsville High (class of 70) ... found you thru another blog

  17. What a fun blog find! I am reading you from Anchorage, AK.

  24. I'm Ann and I am a principal teacher of two Hutterite schools in Dawson Creek, B.C. That is found in the northeast part of BC near the Alberta border.

    While you are hot, we are cold. It rained most of today and was so damp and cool we put on the furnace and gas fireplace to warm up our house.


  25. Hey Lisa, Checking in from a Minneapolis suburb. It's interesting to see where everyone is from that is reading your blog.

  26. Hi Lisa,
