A Reason To Be ‘ME”

IMG_4865“Everybody got their reason, everybody got there ways”.

So why are we posting blog posts, one my ask?

Well I enjoy showing You, my followers and readers what is Me. The things I like and do in a day or week, perhaps months or years…

Days in the week I work at my job where I get a pay cheque. I absolutely love to help our customers. You need help with fabric selections, just let me know.  Totally love tho put them together for You. Here I get to talk to people that like to be creative too.

The rest of my days are spent doing things for our family / daughter, our home and garden. Our myself, smiles.  This all is absolutly the Best part of my moments spend in a day. Being there for them “My Family”

Wow I tell You I have pictures on my phone….So handy to have these cell phones now a days!

Haha, some say I could be one of the spooks person for the Market & Co that just opened up its doors at Upper Canada Mall.

So here is where the networking and my Blog, Facebook, Instagram and all the other apps I am part of comes in to place. My creative side enjoys to show You what I have worked on, this may not always be knitting;-). Even though that has been my passion for so long. You can see sewing results for last years. Our garden is my peacefull moments. My Family is my Love. Traveling I wish I coud do more with my hubby.

My connections to You all, I Totally love!

Enjoy the comments and connections I have with some of You. Yes agree one has to be aware of the “bad” connections on some apps. I say use common sence and be aware not everything or everyone  is at it seems.

Where am I going with this?

  I just love to be ME and enjoy to show You my part of this WORLD.

So Be Happy And Never Forget To Be KIND!

Thank You

Kitchen &CO has class that you too can sign up for, just go see their class list.  I attended  todays class  “Create A Swoon-Worthy Charcuterie & Cheese Board”! Hosted by  “Seed To Sausages”  I know a lot more about cheeses and sausages now! Good chatting to couples waiting in line and at the table. Fantastic afternoon spent there, I call it “Me Time;-)))”

 

 

Oh you should see all the deserts and bread! You will be amazed and I can guarantee you it will be hard to figure out what to get for your sweet tooth!

Reaching Out To Fellow Bloggers

IMG_4166Just like many of you, I have been on WordPress for many years too.

And I was wondering if I could ask You for some input…

At the beginning lets say about 10 years ago, I started postings so my parents in Switzerland could see what I am working on here in Canada. Some of you may know I also posted each post in English and German to make it easy for them and German-speaking readers.
Since my dad past, I kind of stopped the German posting as one can switch to have it translated.

Unfortunately my mom doesn’t understand how to use the computer but enjoys to Skype with me.

So here is where I am reaching out to You.

I am doing pretty much what you are doing. Perhaps it is the topics that I am posting. Everyone loves food but not everyone can enjoy the knitting etc.
I used to comment and like a lot of other posts by Bloggers and WordPress post. With the Blogger sits I often had to do the posting over and over again as it just would not go through and needed all the passwords etc. found that very time-consuming, and often the comments did not go through. So I lost interest in doing this….sorry.
As well as it felt that I “liked” and “commented” but not really got any reply back…..

I know I should say oh well why do I worry about that?

Since I love to see your posts and like to show you my work and enjoy helping others..it is my passion to be creative.

But that doesn’t stop me from wondering sometimes what do fellow bloggers do to get the comments on sometimes a very simple post, or even just a picture and one sentance?
I don’t believe I have to pay for that or sign up with a services.

 I believe my posts should be from what I believe in and how I see my KnitswissYarns Blog. So I just keep on doing what I love and have fun …..the passion continues…

Have a wonderful weekend and if by chance you feel like sending me some info where I can improve my posts …you know what to do….smiles send me a note.

I do care and I thank you for feedback…

“Let’s work up an embroidery Design from our newest Anita Goodesign All Access Club …..oh yes, and try to do it on the Baby Lock Alliance Embroidery machine”
