I've been happy as can be working away on my happy blocks. Debbie suggested that I rename the quilt "Maison Joyeuse", which I thought was an excellent idea. Several of you have inquired as to the size of the blocks, and they are a perfect 8 1/2 inches. Love that size block.
I want to clarify that I did not mean to villify the woman who wasn't willing to share her quilt design with me. I thought she was kind of eccentric, but laughed it off as just one of those things. She was kind of a loner, a woman who obviously had not traveled the easiest road through life, and perhaps hanging on to the uniqueness of her special-one-of-a-kind quilt was a way for her to feel as if she had control over something. I was ok with her not sharing, truly.
What I was not ok with was a couple of comments I received yesterday regarding her behavior. One was just kind of mean, but the other was obscene. No call for that sort of thing here at all people. Snarky or off color comments will be deleted.
There are 15 to 20 people who comment on my blog regularly, and I am so appreciative of all of you. I make an effort to reply to your comments as often as possible, and I have come to think of you as my friends. None of my regular commenters have ever left remarks that were inappropriate. I realize of course, that the nature of the internet is that what you put out there is really "Out There" for any and all to see. Lots of folks read my blog and never comment. Most of those people are probably wonderful, and we would like each other a lot if we were to become acquainted. Others just pass through, leave a nasty or obnoxious remark and go on, never to return. Hopefully that was what happened with the unacceptable comments that were left here.
On another note, Carol left me a question regarding a Daisy quilt I had made, but I can't figure out which one that was. When I tried to respond to you Carol, your email was "do not reply". Contact me again and hopefully I can answer your question!
