Thank you! 75,000 visits to Black Threads blog!

Yes, You Count! Many thanks to all who have visited the Black Threads blog since I started posting back in September 2006. I hope you've enjoyed these notes on African American quilts, quilters and other fanciful things. It has been my honor.

This evening I clicked on the map there on the right side, scroll down a bit. The map tracks each visit to the Black Threads blog. So, if you have visited 20 times, the map counts 20 times. Well, since 2006, there have been 75,000 visits!

I hope you continue to enjoy the Black Threads blog by:
  • Clicking the posts in your favorite category. The categories or LABELS are at the bottom of each post or there on the right hand column. Click a LABEL and read more on that topic.

You may recall that the first sentence of first chapter of Crafted Lives is "Jeanette Rivers counts." All of us who love quilts and quilters are blessed because you share all the things that count with us!

Just to say saw your quilt in the black quilts and jazz exhibit at the New York State Museum. The exhibit was a knockout as was your quilt. We met in Cooperstown.
