Have you seen this magazine? It is full of blogs. Fantastic blogs. Bloggers who post daily or several times a week. They share tons of info on their blogs and thousands log in daily to see what they are up to. Some have little "Blog Awards" buttons on their side bars....... Oh to be one of those bloggers. I had great inspiration when I started to blog to be one of those blogs. I would post gorgeous photos, write witty little posts about my life and quilting, and thousands of you would follow along...... Then reality set in. The fact of the matter is I don't have that much to share that anyone would care to know about. Sure I have all my quilt stuff but sometimes (like now) I am busy working on things that I can't share with anyone. As for the gorgeous photos, well let's get real here, it's not happening.
Some bloggers share posts about cute things that their kids have done or said. My boys are 17 and 18 and let's face it- the crap they do and say is just not that cute.
Some bloggers do posts about the sweet little animals they share their homes with. Well, this is Nell and since most of the time she behaves like a rabid raccoon, the stories I have about her are not really print appropriate.
Some bloggers post pictures about their beautiful sewing rooms. Let's get real here folks, I am working to make book and magazine deadlines. There isn't any beautiful here right now. Take a look at that shelf and you get the picture of my level of chaos.
I could post about the abscess tooth I had this week and the time I lost dealing with it...you could all post comments about how sorry you are for me.....No, I think not.
I could show you these little half square triangles I have been making but I can't show you anymore of it or tell you about it because it's a secret.
So, to avoid doing a Jerry Seinfeld post about nothing, I will tell you about this. I use Best Press by the gallon to prepare all my fabric before applique. Sometimes I run out and the quilt shops aren't open so I have used Niagra in a pump bottle. Others use it and swear by it. It is under $2, which is a plus. My problem is it stinks. I think it makes my fabric smell moldy.
Solution- Maxx by Faultless.
I ran out of Best Press and had to make a run to Wal Mart. I found this. It is in a pump, under $2 and it doesn't smell moldy. It is actually Lavender Vanilla scented. One of the great things about the Best Press is the scents. Now that I have found this in a great scent and readily available, I may stick with it. I can buy 4 of these bottles for the price of 1 Best Press. So there you have it- my moment of wisdom for the day.
You can check back tomorrow to see what I am up to but this is the post you will see. I am such a lousy blogger.
Happy Quilting, Dawn
