Some Housekeeping

This post is about exactly what it's titled, "Some Housekeeping." I need to take care of a few things on the blog so if it doesn't pertain to you, just ignore it...sewing posts will be back this weekend...

1. If you've sent me an email and I haven't responded it means I probably didn't get it. I checked my spam folder the other day and found one from 6 weeks ago or thereabouts (Lisa did you get my message!). So no I'm not ignoring you, *smile* I just didn't receive resend it, please. I am generally pretty good about answering email and if you haven't received a reply in a week, please resend! Thanks!

2. Questions in the comments section...I am gonna be honest...I read my blog at I don't have a lot of time to reply to questions...I have good intentions I think that I will when I get home...but then social obligations, work functions or plain ole work has me dragging in the house so late that I forget about it. If you have a question that you really want an answer to...send me an email...and don't forget response #1! *smile*

3. I know alot of bloggers reply to each and every comment that's left on their's really kewl and I know that I like getting the emails from my fellow bloggers when I've left some amazing fount of wisdom on their blog...but and it's a big one...I don't have time to do this! It's not that I don't like receiving comments and I really do appreciate them, however, I don't have enough hours in the day to reply to everyone...*hanging head in shame* I know that I should but then when would I have time to sew!?! And believe me, my family members don't like it when I don't have time to sew...I'm not a nice person!!! ROTFLOL!

4. I am going to try to acknowledge first time commenters...I so appreciate it when you come out of lurkerdom to say I can't guarantee when I'm gonna start and how long it's gonna last, *LOL* but I am gonna try!

5. This is the most important thing and it is aimed at everyone...Thank You! Thank you for coming by so often to read my ramblings...thank you for coming by and ooohhh and aaahhh over the latest garment...I'm starting to be like a junkie needing my comment fix! *LOL* So those oooohhhs and aaaahhhs are so appreciated. And even if you don't ooooohhhh and aaaahhh but come by and drop me a line via email, it is appreciated! But mostly thank you for taking some of your precious time and stopping don't know how often it makes my day...

Okay that's it...I walked in the door at 9:37, ripped my clothes off, sat down and wrote out this's 9:56 so I will make it in time to see Project Runway!!!! *yes*

*edited to add*
Project Runway is on at 11:00 est! Are you kidding me?!

Until the weekend when hopefully I will have more sewing to share...


  1. I think you might have missed the first showing of Proj. Runway. 'Cause I'm est and it was on at 9:00. Oh well, you know they'll show it a dozen times between now and next week!

    Hope you read my comment about how I can't figure out the Outlook Exp. e-mail. It's the same one that I referred to a fabric you asked about. Well, it's really on NOT Follow me?

  2. {{HUG}}
    I am with you on not having time to reply by email to the comments. Also on reading the blog from work :) Sometimes I don't even have the time to check Bloglines, which is very frustrating!

  3. So, I'm usally up for Project Runway... but when my DH is around, I figure he's not going to want to watch this... Ahem, he hung around and watched it this time! It was good. Plus it's always nice when they have a good challange!
    I've just started popping in... but there is no need to do any type of follow up answer! I hear you!
    Don't get your thread in a Knot! LoL.... Don't you just hate it when that happens?
    Keep Up the Good Re-Do's!

  4. Greetings from a fellow comment junkie. I can't wait to see what you will be making next.

  5. I want to let you know that I read your blog every day and appreciate your generous sharing. I am one of those people who have come out of lurkdom.

  6. Yeah, like Dana said, they're running it twice, once an hour earlier than it was before, once an hour later.
    So it started here at 8:00 PM and then ran again at 10:00.
    the girls are both here and we robbed dh of the TV and had a PR party and watched it twice! With popcorn.
    Did you catch it yet? Can we discuss?

  7. First, Carolyn, I read quite a few blogs , yours is one to which I always look forward, and often make comments and help when I can. However, in consideration of all blogger's time investment in keeping me connected with other sewists, I do not expect you to answer my comments personally. I think it would be too much of a drain on you all to do that. Summerset, and a couple of others, have been answering questions in their blog; very effecient.

  8. I am with you on not being able to keep up with all the "housekeeping". Don't stress. I don't expect personal responses. Too much pressure lol!

  9. lol keeping up with the blog/email can be VERY time consuming... says the girl trying to work her way through 492 blogs.

  10. I have to say I look forward to reading your blogs...and understand how responding to comments can take up time...especially when your busy with other things...but I do appreciate the effort and thank you for taking the time to address the issue

  11. I enjoy reading your blog... and understand every comment will not be personally responded to.

  12. You are just so nice. How considerate of you to post a blog just on comments and questions. Personally, I comment a lot on sewing blogs but don't expect replies. It's nice but never expected. :)

  13. Carolyn, I don't always comment but I always love reading! :D But no worries about replying when I do! Save your energy for sewing!!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated!
