Everyone once in while blog readers ask question in the comment section or in personal emails. Sometimes I know that other blog readers might like the answer to the same questions.
A recent question from Mary Lee was: “I would really appreciate a tutorial on pie crusts! I tried to find it in the archives but could not.” The question came after I wrote this blog post about making strawberry pie.
Ah…it’s not. Thanks for pointing that out to me. I don’t have my pie crust recipe on the blog and I should have it on. How about the next time I make pie, I take some pictures and do a complete post on that? I don’t make pie a lot…but hopefully this will get me making it. Hubby will sure be happy that you asked.
This comment came from Lucy: “Please show more projects and less fabric. ( on your email newsletters)”. This one made me laugh. I sure wish I would write more about projects but in order to that, I’d have to have the projects to write the posts about. I work full time….I take care of the blog and my website Making Learning Fun. Besides that I have a busy family…Kelli and I have publication obligations with magazines that can’t always be revealed. I don’t have any more time in a day to do more projects so I can write about them.
If anyone doesn’t want to read a post about fabric, books, recipes, my family, the dog, childcare, charity quilts or whatever you aren’t interested in, please just pass the post and don’t read it if it is something that you don’t find interesting. I know this may come as a surprise to some but HONESTLY-I write the blog more for me than for anyone else. I write it as a journal for myself but I open it all for others to read. Some days of my life are more exciting….some are BORING. Some days all I get done is work, supper and laundry. That’s life and the blog is a reflection of my life. Lucy, I’m sorry I’m not more exciting.
I was asked by blog reader, Linda Yarrow, to pass information on to all of you about the plight of some of the quilters in Houston. Follow this link to learn more. Now is a good time to clean out your sewing stash, quilt tops, or unwanted finished quilts and send them their way. They are in need and as quilters, we help. Please do read more by following the link.
So many people were interested in knowing more about this quilt. It’s the one my niece Jody made for a benefit. A blog reader had donated the kit and Jody put it together for the benefit.
So many wanted to know the pattern. Another blog reader, Baraba, stepped forward and provided this information. Here’s what she said, “The name of the quilt is Cottage Cozy. It is in the Very Merry Quilt book by This and That. I think you can still get the booklet.”
That’s today’s installment of “Ask Jo”. Let me know if you have other questions….
