Today is the day for Grow Your Blog 2015, a lovely event hosted by Vickie over at 2 Bags Full. This is sort of a virtual blogging networking session, so if you're one of my current readers and you've never heard of this before, head over to Vickie's main post to meet some great new blogs to follow!
For those of you who are new, welcome to my blog! My name is Alyssa I've actually been blogging for a really long time, just not here. :) I started my book review blog The Shady Glade over 8 years ago in 2006. That blog focuses on mostly book related posts for children's, middle grade, and teen/young adult books.
In February of 2014, I really got back into cross stitching, which although it's a habit I've always had, it kind of comes and goes. Well, this time I really got back into it, mostly due to the discovery of the online stitching community. By September, the idea of creating my own stitching focused blog was starting to circulate, and thus Brownie's Chair was born.
I use this blog to help keep track of my progress for many of my WIP (works in progress) and I also participate in several SALs (stitch a longs) that have updates posted here. In 2015, I am hosting one of my own SALs for a Flower of the Month set of freebie designs, so if you think you might like to join that, you can find details about that in my header. I also do "Freebie Friday" posts, where I share links to freebie cross stitch designs that I have found in my travels around the internet.
For current followers, thank you so much for visiting and your continued support, and to any new followers, welcome and enjoy the ride!
