I posted my annoyance and then thought better of it. Nobody asked my opinion...nobody really cares. I think it's pretty clear what I like by looking through my quilts. No need to state my DISlike.
Some people complained about some people having expensive machines. I have a nice sewing machine (ok, TWO!)...so sue me. It is the first really nice thing I ever allowed my husband to do for me. I don't get manicures, haircoloring, and have a bag for every outfit..I don't even know you could call what I wear an "outfit". What is it to someone else how I choose to spend my money? I assure you my family is not suffering because of what goes on in my sewing nook.
Others complained about people buying too much fabric or fabric that was too expensive. I learned to sew on wal-mart fabric and I don't care where you buy yours. I use more expensive stuff now because I have slowed *way* down in my quilting...I'm talking my time more and enjoying myself instead of playing Worker Bee. I can afford to buy better stuff because my volume has gone down. I will admit I have gotten a few things free...sue me on that. What do you do, send it back with a no thanks??
Yet more people were annoyed when people talked about their faith (guilty, and if that is wrong, I don't wanna be right) or showed their babies or their feet...you're not gonna catch my feet OR a full shot of my babies on this blog, but I am not going to be annoyed if you do. Personally I love seeing a good pic of babies feet (double whammy!).
Don't forget the spelling and grammar police.
Honestly after reading all that it seems terrifying to write a blog post!
Do I have negative thoughts? Absolutely. I just...
- don't buy it
- don't read it
- don't sew it
- don't follow it
- talk to a trusted friend and let it all hang out...move on.
My first King Size quilt is getting bound now and I hope to have it up this week. 400 inches of hand binding...whew. This is gonna take a while.
