Thanks to Amy for reminding me I've not posted in a while. I've been reading and commenting and just didn't realize I wasn't posting myself. LOL!
Guess I really haven't had much to post about. No more sewing yet but I have been cutting squares for the Christmas version of my quilt in my last post. But I've had a really bad cold and have spent most of my time vegging out in my chair playing stupid computer games or watching mindless movies that I could mostly sleep thru.
I've noticed as the list of blogs on my sidebar grew the less time I've spent sewing or posting or commenting as it was taking a lot of time to read all those blogs even using bloglines. So you might notice that the list is considerable smaller now. I don't mean to offend anyone who used to be on the list but I had to pare down somewhere so mostly if you didn't have much quilty content, or were mainly an art quilt, or crazy quilt, or postcard site (none of which interest me as much). And didn't comment on my blog, or link to me or in someway give an indication that you followed my blog then I cut you from my list. It's just a decision I had to make in order to have time to spend quilting instead of just reading about it. Not that some of you might not make it back as I regularly check out blogs of people who leave comments on mine or other blogs I read. It's an ever changing list. I know that in the 3 days since I made the change from over 160 blogs on my bloglines to a little under 100 I've been a more interactive blogger. I've left more comments and actually started to answer privately some of the comments left to me. Which is something I rarely had time to do before. Hopefully the changes will make me a better blogger and will enable me to build better friendships thru comments and personal emails.
I've also noticed that since I started using bloglines I don't really enjoy the rings (stash quilts and mavericks) as much as I used to. I'm not saying that I don't like your blogs but that I don't get the same sense of "family" from it as I used to. Because when I had to click around the ring to see what everyone was up to I'd notice if someone wasn't posting and kinda get a bit worried about them as I consider most of ring members to be friends. But with reading thru bloglines and reading so many blogs it's easy to lost track of who has and hasn't posted in a while. And as I flipped thru the ring I'd keep track of comments on some of the posts that most interested me to see what everyone else had to say about it. And now I can't keep track of who I'd like to go back to re-read. So I'm thinking I need to keep using bloglines for those times when I'm really busy and can't go visit everyone but go back to running around the rings every few days to really keep up with what's going on in our little corner of blogland.
I guess I should stop this ramble and go sew some squares together. Or the lack of quilty content might have me dropping my own blog. LOL!
