I have a question out there for all of my readers.......do you still read blogs? What is your go to place for all things quilting/sewing?
I will admit I love Instagram. It's like eating M&M's easy and satisfying. Little bits. A very little time commitment.
I will tell you I very, very, very much dislike Facebook. Especially after the election (PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND ABOUT THE ELECTION AT ALL) everyone is so wound up and I can't take it so I hardly even look at it anymore, only when necessary. I think it is terrible that people are unfriending people, uninviting them to Thanksgiving and outright fighting! How did this happen that it is ok to do these terrible things? I think it has driven people apart more than bring them together, no thank you!
If I didn't need it for my quilt guild I would delete it all together. Where do all those people come from that I am not following?????? I also read that FB makes people feel more depressed......maybe all the comparison? I am seriously considering deleting everyone except the quilt guild that sends notifications about meetings etc.
Instagram on the other hand is so much better. Only the people I want to follow show up on my feed. I can have 10 or 1000, the choice is mine. It's easy to delete them if they show too many things I am not interested in. I also learn about so many new things, instead of people trashing each other. If they do start it is a simple delete.
I know many of you still love blogs and I do too.
I know I have been slacking.....
I totally forgot about these last 2 quilts, I really like them!
I talked to Barb of Fun with Barb about this when she was here last week. She also says the same thing about blogging.
So as you scroll through this rambling post I thought it would be fun to make it a picture heavy postof old pictures and you could skip reading it if you wanted and just look at the pictures (-: I really am going to try harder to blog but I will say sometimes I have nothing to show you!
Please feel free to leave your thoughts and ideas about all social media and quilting/sewing I would love to hear what you think!
Today is Friday and my family is celebrating Thanksgiving today. We started the tradition when they all started getting married and had to decide where to eat or eat at both family houses. I remember as a young mother how stressful it was lugging the kids to 2 houses and being uncomfortably full. This has worked out well for our family and ends up being a very lovely day with all my children, their spouses and all the grandchildren. It's a win-win!
