Thank You to Friends Near and Far

Will you just look at all of those quilters?
I am so proud to have all of you visit
b e y o n d   t h e   r e e f
In the last few months, I have used the map above to follow along with all of you
(and yes, I do love the color scheme of the map!!)
there are people in 655 different cities
in 33 different countries
visiting the blog
for inspiration, for color & design, for quilting
And in the last two years I have used this map shown above
I have seen thousands and thousands of visitors from 60 different countries
that's exciting for me
to say the least

Now, I know there are plenty of bloggers out there
designers and quilters
with thousands and thousands more fans, cities, and followers
but that's not the point
it's not a competition.

this is my way of saying
t h a n k   y o u
to each and every one of you
for each and every one of your visits, and comments

won't you become a follower of the blog?  on facebook?
I added a follower counter on the blog last month - let's see if we can bump it up to 1000 by the end of the year...whaddya say?  just one follower from each city?  each country?

I'm hoping the Bulgaria visit is my son Jason and his wife Kelly in Sofia where Jason works for the Peace Corps and their home enjoys a number of quilts featuring Beyond the Reef fabrics. Gayle
