  1. Dont worry about it Marta – actually it made me think about change, growth, creativity etc. i have a pretty thick skin. It is more a question of time and wanting to focus on a few key projects.

  2. Hi Sharon, I did not mean my comment to sound nasty. I was more lamenting the lack of entries of the type that most interested me as I found so many of your links to other sites so exciting. I am in awe of the service you perform for the stitching community and would never seek to denigrate that. As you say, it is your blog and you can take it in whatever direction you desire and I both respect and applaud that. I wish you nothing but success and happiness, Cheers, Marta

  3. Sharon, I love your blog. I've taken a class with you and followed you with admiration for a couple of years now. I feel like I've grown with you. Your Stitch Dictionary, the free Friday patterns, and the stitch worksheets are all amazing resources that show your talents, interests and seemingly boundless generosity. Change whatever and whenever you like. I will always look forward to the fun you dish up!

  4. I am very happy with your blog. I truly appreciate the many free and low-cost resources you labor to offer to the public. I know MANY others who feel this way too!!!!! I can't help but feel that you can never please some people, and you shouldn't bother to try. My mother taught me "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all" Perhaps some should take this lesson to heart. Thank you, Sharon for all you do!!!!

  5. Sorry Marta I have not had time to do the same research and I notice your own blog is work in progress. I figure until someone pays me to blog I can shift my interests if that is where it takes me. Many people say they like the changes and they feel I offer plenty to the online community. I may change in the future but life is busy at the moment.

  6. I used to love your blog. So many links to other art websites and interesting associated paraphernalia. For the last ?6 months or so it has been all CQ detail and work in progress etc. I'm rapidly starting to lose interest. Are you planning to get back to your old style of blogging with links to sumptuous and gorgeous other things on the web?
