I am finally getting around to replying to some comments left on this blog.
First of all I want to thank everyone who read my blog. It amazes me that someone would take time out of their day to have a look at what I have been doing. I have had over 350 visitors in the last two weeks. WOW!. Thank you.
I really do appreciate the comments. I do reply to them when I can. However some have left comments and no return email so I can't respond to you. I will attempt to rectify that now
First off Jo has nominated me for the Thinking Blogger Award. This is sort of a MEME where you post five blogs that make you think about things. Not just ones you enjoy, which believe me I have dozens , so here goes:
First off naturally be Jo's. I just love her blog but I can't nominate her back.
1. Caity's Princess and the Pea
2. Mindy's Bits and Pieces of Mindy's Kingdom . Gotta love the cows
3. Ati's Ati on the Crazy Road
4. Ree's Confession's of A Pioneer Woman She's a riot, be sure to read about vomit gross out stories
and last but not least my friend Janet she has really great memories of growing up.
Now I realize that only 2 of these are CQ related but the others are just hilarious.
Now for the comments.
Flora- You wanted to know about the Gueniver block. The knights were first done in a backstitch to outline them. Then they were filled in with, either satin stitch, chain or stem stitch.
I believe that I got the flowers beads at Wal Mart but most likely Hobby Lobby. They did still carry them a few months ago.
I also drive my husband crazy sometimes and I have finally realized that I do have a quirky sense of humor. I just thought that the Romance Cover fabric was too fun to pass up.
I have gotten a few new dyes but have had no time to play with them, I will let you know how it turns out.Since I am obsessive and always have to try " that thing over there I don't have yet" I am sure I will give the site you recommended a try.
I want to thank everyone who gave me input on my fabric dilemma. I have decided to go with the "Bodice Rippers" as Susan called them. I agree with Jo, that the colors will lend themselves well to a block and will be easy to coordinate. Now if you are in my group, then be prepared to do something very "Out There". I think Janet's will have the LOVE STINKS thing going on.
Lastly, thanks for all the support on the Great Dachshund Debacle as Janet calls it. I fully realize that it is not appropriate to take a puppy everywhere. But some people in retail are just too rude for words. I know what I am talking about, I have worked retail for almost 15 years and I know how hard it can be. Believe me the customer is NOT always right. Some people should not be allowed to mingle with the general public. On the hand I detest being treated like crud in a store and I do not hesitate to tell them and complain to the management.
Enough of that.
I still have my doggies and sometimes they are much better company than a lot of people.
If I have forgetten anyone let me know . LOL
