final post...finally!

I have been trying to find the words to write my last post here at The Flour Loft... hence the space since my last post...
It is so hard to express just how overwhelmed I am with the support and friendship that I have encountered here in this little piece of cyber space... I have met friends who brighten my day with their cheery and warm messages, I have received lots of encouragement and great advice too and have also made some very special friends.

I just want to say thank you to each of you who has visited and left a comment and also those of you who I do not know but who I hope have enjoyed reading my ramblings here.

The Flour Loft was started when Alice and I shared our Flour Loft studio and were working under the name of 'folkydokee'. With the studio vacated last Spring it now seems time to move the blog on too. Perhaps I shall be able to talk Alice into joining me with an 'alice and ginny' blog one day. In the meantime we are working hard creating the final projects and writing the text for our next craft book which is due out in October 2009. Further details of what we are up to I will try to add to our monthly catchup page (not yet updated) on our 'alice and ginny' website. Please do keep in touch either there or come visit me on my photoblog, 'sweetmyrtle', where I just enjoy posting photographs that I take and sometimes I write a few thoughts down too.

I am also delighted to say that Kitty has won my giveaway, so if you could please mail me you address I shall send you a little something x

So thanks again and although this blog has now come to it's natural close I will still be here in blogland and visiting all your lovely blogs as usual.

with warmest wishes
Ginny xxx

Tracy said...

Though it is a sad moment that Flour Loft is closing, it is reassuring that you are happy now doing other things, Ginny...and that you will still be around with us, and at your lovely Sweet Myrtle. I have so much enjoyed visiting you here all this time. Wishing you & yours all the best in 2009 and beyond...May all your dreams come true! ((BIG HUGS))

Kitty said...

Gosh, is it me who has won? Oh wow - I have such mixed feelings - pleasure of course on winning, but so sad that you are going :-( Yours was one of the first blogs I found when I landed in the Blogosphere, and I will miss it, and you, enormously. It's quite ironic really - I bought yours and Alice's book this week.

I am a regular at Sweet Myrtle so very much hope we 'stay in touch' via your beautiful photographs.

Take care of you and yours Ginny, and I wish you every happiness in the future.

Sad to see you close the doors, but you have to make room for new things sometimes. Good luck with the book and all the other plates you're keeping in the air!

I'm sorry to see the flour loft go too. Feels like a real end to our folkydokee adventures but onward and upwards with A & G. I will get get more involved with a blog on the website - be interesting for our friends to see how our partnership works!
