On my last blog, Anonymous was back with a nasty comment. Someone emailed me and pointed it out. I'm going to go against my rule of deletion, and leave that one there for all to see this time.
Here it is to keep anyone interested from having to go search for it.
There is no way you can pay for all the fabric you get. I figure you are just a PR for Fatquarter shop. Also I never see the amount of completed projects. You must be an attention seeking Nutcase.
This one I WILL respond to. Anonymous went a little too far with this comment by attacking my friends. Sadly, I pretty much know who "anonymous" is because of some recent gossip that came my way. Sick, sick.
There is no way you can pay for all the fabric you get.
Yes, I can and do pay cash for all the fabric I get. I was not born wealthy. I don't sit at home eating bon-bons while someone else supports me. I am a very successful career person and I earn a extremely handsome income. Do I detect a little jealousy here?
I figure you are just a PR for Fatquarter shop.
Nope, don't work for them and am not associated with them in any manner except as a VERY satisfied customer. I pay the same price everyone else does there, or at any other online shop from which I order. I have become friends with the staff there over the years that I have been a customer, but have never met any of them in person. Will have to remedy that some day!
Also I never see the amount of completed projects.
Well, I'd say you haven't read my blog very thoroughly. I have been quilting since August, 2001 and have made approximately 150 quilts. I have six to eight that just need bindings right now, have two more being custom quilted, have another one going to a local quilter this weekend, and I have a stack of probably eight quilts next to my cutting table that need backings pieced. I haven't sewn much this year, I'll admit, because of Daisy being sick and losing her, then getting a new puppy, and because of an illness at work and the extra hours I'm putting in in that regard.
You must be an attention seeking Nutcase.
Attention seeking nutcase? Oh, right. THAT must be why I send secret gifts to folks without mention of who sent them. THAT must be why the majority of my charitable contributions are made without fanfare. THAT must be why I blog several times a day, day in and day out, just to draw attention to myself. Thank you for pointing that out.
Comments? Anyone? Might as well get all this over and done with now.
My apologies to The Fat Quarter Shop for being drug into this. There isn't a finer group of folks on the face of the earth.
EDIT: The discussion is now closed. To my friends and fellow quilters and bloggers, thank you for your support.
