Separation of Church and State

Or rather, crafting and sewing.

As I'm sure you've all noticed, things have been a little quiet around the blog lately as I've tried to sort a few things out.  I've been sewing, but it's not tended to be the kind of sewing that's always welcome on a sewing blog.

It's . . . (gasp!) . . . craft sewing.  And while a lot of the comments I've gotten have been very nice, there have been a few - deleted as soon as I was able to clear the red haze from my eyes and see the monitor again - which basically said they would rather stick knitting needles in their eyes than read about more craft sewing.

Don't let me stand in your way.

So I'm taking my craft sewing on the road, and moving it over to a blog dedicated to my new crafty sewing business, Useful & Beautiful (a riff on the William Morris quote, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful").  There are craft fairs afoot, and a handmade Etsy shop.  If you're not totally repelled by craft sewing, or me selling my soul by attempting to do a little sewing for profit, please feel free to wander on over and see what my projects are there.

I'm not giving up on or closing down this blog.  I'll still be sewing for me, and posting about it, and sharing pictures of the cats, the garden, the chickens or anything else that strikes my fancy.  And if I get any more comments about knitting needles, I know where the delete button is, and I'm not afraid to use it.

Seriously? People can be so rude. I don't mind seeing your crafty stuff at all. Sewing is sewing and we should all just enjoy it. I'm sure there are people don't want to read about my dogs. g

ps - love that quote!

I can't believe people are so full of themselves. It's your blog right... you can put what you want on it and we have the choice to read or not read. I love the name and thought behind it for your craft blog. I'll have a look! I love that you are encouraging of the needles in the eye!

It's your blog and you can post what you want. What the heck is wrong with people? Keep doing what you are doing for YOU!

The nerve of some people !

Post what you like, when you like and if they don't like it...oh, well

I don't get it....I prefer to follow the blogs of people who do a variety of things--they have interesting and unexpected insights fed by their varied interests. It's the single-minded blogs I give up on after a month or two.

Now I'll have to keep track of you in two places. Oh well, I know how to do that.

Wow-I can't believe the nerve of some people. I like reading about all the things you make. It's your blog. They can look away

people actually do that??? I'm appalled by the rudeness on the internet. (Not everywhere - but obviously in your comments). Really it's your blog.
I like to read about crafting but that isn't really relevant. It's YOUR blog. You can jolly well put anything out there you want. Your choice As a reader, I can stop back again or not. My choice.
BTW, I'll be back.
