Tomorrow 1 September Cute embroidery will be 15 so its 'our' birthday.

Thank you to all who come here be you regulars who comment on postings to those who lurk in the sidelines. A big thank you to those who post daily from dragonflyer, sewmom and genin with their list of sites offering freebies, gerryvb who gives a daily quote and illustrates it with a design from here and she also posts the with a link to support information and research about breast cancer and she has some freebie links too. airyfairy posts birthday wishes assisted by zoefzoef, a huge undertaking but one we love. Thank you to those who share their work so regularly and noah and pennifold are some of these cuties. basketkase shares her new designs. The moderators who try to keep thing running smoothly behind the scenes. i think toogie deserves a mention for the inspirational work she produces and her brilliant way with words. Sharing our life experiences from around the world is a huge part of the site and I have many friends around the world who I can ask for help with my embroidery or to chat to in a PM thanks to Cute.

Not forgetting those who are no longer with us, manami/Yoriko who created a business from her fantastic digitising, leenova54/Debra, scotty/Ann spendloves friend and Dennis999 who provided some great comments that had us laughing. His comments on the amount of scissors we own was hilarious and brilliant. Though they are no more we still remember them as too the others who were here and also died. spendlove organised some great birthday and christmas secret sister present swaps and shared some super designs that she created. Sue/spendlove has raised money from her designs and the money donated for them has gone to the hospice scotty was cared for.

We - Cuties around the world also have to thank Miss Veronika for creating this great place where we met and continue to do so. I would like to propose that for the birthday month of September that we share some of the work we have created from her superb designs. I will put a post up for that here for you to share your Cute embroidery designs work.

Huge apologies if I have left important names off this list and please add them below and why they are important to the site I look forwards to seeing what has been created.

Thank you for being here and part of this caring community, thank you again Miss V and Happy Birthday to Cute at 15.

WOW! WOW! WOW! how beautifully written Caroline, you have said this perfectly.

I for one remember fondly all the people that have been mentioned and some more who are no longer on here as much as they used to be.

Veronika has always been such a caring person and her digitising skills/talents are superb.

I, too, have made many friends all round this beautiful world and love the camaraderie between us. I've seen babies grow into young adolescents, prayed for many, many of our Cuties and shared my life with you all. It's wonderful in this day and age to be able to say that knowing that this site is full of such wonderful caring Cuties.

I want to wish Veronika Happy Birthday, and all the best for the future and pray that she goes from strength to strength - 15 years is such a huge milestone.

I know I've been here from just after the beginning, so it's been such a privilege to get to know you all, much love Chris

Happy birthday. This has made me really think and reminisce. I got my original machine to help me have something to do while recuperating from an automobile accident. It took my mind off the things I could no longer do. The next April after I joined in 2007, the desire of my heart was born. My precious 1st grandson. It was so much fun picking through Cute Embroidery stuff for him. We later found out that he had Cerebral Palsy so I devoted my days to doing physical therapy on him and loving him with my whole heart. Soon came a brother, then a another child, a girl! Boy could I find things to embroider for her! This site and all of you precious souls have been a lifeline, a shoulder, an ear, a source, but most of all a friend.
When my son nearly died, you prayed until heaven rumbled! I can never thank you enough, but I can and do pray for each of you. Several times a year, I call each of your name in my prayers and more often when you've shared and asked.
Thank you Veronika for this site, your generosity, your love, gifts, and beauty that you have shared with us. May God bless you richly, now and always.

You made my eyes leak! You're such a beautiful soul. Love Chris

I don't really know many of you as you seem to know each other, but, think Miss Lillian should be mentioned as she used to post so sweetly. I do think of her often and hope she is doing ok.

As sites seem to come and go, it is sew commendable for one to be around this long and so well run! Don't think I have ever seen a nasty or unkind remark here. Happy Birthday and thanks to all who keep it running so smoothly!

jrob by jrob 31 Aug 2021

Stick around sister, we will get to know each other as time unfolds and I for one, can't wait!

asterixsew by asterixsew 01 Sep 2021

Millie thanks for adding Miss Lillian's name, most remiss of me to forget her. There was a update on her recently. Do join in more, I lurked here for ages before joining in and participating. There is the odd spat or rude comment but we moderators step in... Thanks so much for joining in with this post

Happy 15th Birthday Cute Embroidery!!!
Thank you Miss Veronika for creating such a wonderful embroidery site for us, with all the trimming like Community. You made this our cyber Home, because all who enter, are welcome. We can sit here, with our morning coffee, for a catch-up of our friends and see what's new in designs. When we have a need, Cuties band together and support each other. I very well know, so thank you Cuties once more.
Even though we couldn't do with our mods, our generous digitizers,our daily quotes of inspiration, each and everyone plays an important part on Cute and I (we) appreciate you. Thank you for all your support. Always, Toogie
