No Reply Bloggers, Commenting & Some ChitChat..

Commenting 101

Commenting 101

By no means and I going to sit here and tell you that I know everything there is to know about No Reply Bloggers.. Frankly, I don’t..

And now, I find myself doing the one type of post I said to myself I’d never do.. 

By nature, or just general all around being me… I am not big on commenting at blogs. I tend to be to honest, to opinionated, and generally if I love it, I really love it and that’s when you’ll get a comment from me.. It’s when my opinion is different that gets me in to trouble.. but that’s for another day.. Generally I rarely comment unless I found something useful to say about the post. I’m not a shy person by any means, I just prefer to not comment if I can’t think of something to say, and generally if I don’t like it, I absolutely do not say the opposite.. I just move on and forget about that post. As I think all should.. so I’m not big on commenting. I love getting them and I try to reply to most of the ones I get on my own blog. I don’t reply to every comment tho and not that there are generally a lot of comments, but how do you respond to a “That’s so cute, I love it” other than Thank You… it’s a question to me of .. should I say thank your or not…  When it’s a question, I’ve always replied.

Their in lies the krutch tho.. as a WordPress user, People have to put their emails into the box to make a comment. Thus, they become a commenter I can reply to. What I don’t know is if they use a real email address, but if your asking a question on anyone’s blog, lets hope that you’ve given an email address one can reply to.

Elm Street Quilts

Over At Elm Street Quilts, Patty has started what looks to be a fun Quilt Along that she is simply calling Harvest QAL.

It looks so much fun and I so wish I had the time for it, but alas, I’m swamped for a bit.. 

I thought I’d tell you about it tho, it looks really fun and if your looking for something that looks quick to put together and easy to piece, this looks like an adorable Fall project that will surely make your wall a happy camper.

Go On over to Elm Street Quilts and see what Patty does next..

The Newest In Boms and QALs..

Quilt Block Of The Month

I believe I’ve told you about my love of Blog Hops, Boms, and QALs before, so I thought I’d keep you aprised of some new ones I have found and a few I have missed but are still available.

I Love the Quilt Block Of The Month blog/site and it’s always my first stop when I want to check out what’s new in the world of Special Events for Quilters. She doesn’t have a logo for her site, so I played around in Corel today and made her one.

She’s earned a permanent place on my side menu, so you can always find the link their also.

The rest of these featured today were just new finds from Pinterest and Google, So please, go enjoy them, some of these are AMAZING!!!

The Fat quarters shop is very limited, you can download the files until August 14, 2015 and then they will be gone, so you’ll want to go and get that soon.

Pine Valley’s needs to be run thru a cart like interface, and you’ll want to get July’s block because it will need to be purchased tomorrow if you don’t get it today.

Enjoy!!

New Sponsors for EQ Seasons…

EQ Seasons Row Along

EQ Seasons Row AlongToday I get to announce a few more sponsors for EQ Seasons. It’s very exciting when a company writes you back that they are happy to participate. I’d like to thank Connecting Threads, Aurifil, Cherry’s Blossoms Patterns, and Nancy’s Notions and Northcott Fabrics for also joining in with some great prizes for ya’ll.

A special thank you to Northcott Fabrics, and Patti Carey who is a blog designer participating with us in this RAL. She jumped right in as one of the first companies to offer a giveaway without my even having to ask for it. They have been amazing to say the least. They supplied all the bloggers with two fabric choices, one being a background fabric, and the other a fabric of their choice for their rows and quilts. Now, they are offering a gift each week of the hop.. I am truly humbled that they have offered us such an amazing gift.. Read below to see what they are doing for you.
