I just read an interesting post of a blogger who quilts, and is published in various magazines etc, but her blog is a place where she could say it as it is and frequently did with a few choice words ! Then she discovered her neighbour found the blog, so now she has to be diplomatic in her writing. Well i guess its inevitable someone will not appreciate what our opinions are, but does that mean we all have to be sugary nice all the time? I try to keep my entries positive and if im not happy then i usually keep it to myself, maybe i should vent more often? Should i be letting the world know that something is bothering me? I could fill pages with the sort of whining that goes on in my head sometimes! I did relate to her thoughts of alienating herself even more so, im not like a lot of people either, i say it how it is too, but a lot of people dont like it. So you soon find out who the important people in your life are! Im not sorry if someone has been a total jerk and now i choose not to include them in my life anymore, that their problem! ahh thats life. I love that quilting is a relaxing past time, mostly! My stitch ripper is my best friend! Besides the dog of course! And my family.
