Sunflower continued and a Promise

     I am busy putting together two pieces for a fiber art show that is due tomorrow. Everything is a mess. I have been taking some photos of the process which I will share over the next couple of days. However, something is bothering me in blogland. First, let me be positive and show you the continuing growth of my one lone sunflower.

     Ok, here is goes. I love when people leave me comments. If they are not anonymous or no reply comment bloggers, I always answer. It is a privilege. I hope I have earned my readers' trust. I likewise leave comments when I can. The other day, someone sent me a link to a well know blogger who had a terrible experience with rough criticism. I responded with a story of my own to show support and that I appreciated her openness. The next day, I was very surprised to get a response that was canned (marketing) from that blogger  trying to sell me some of her quilt replica merchandise. I had a bad taste, like my heartfelt comment was turned against me to sell to me. 
   I promise to never use my blog to solicit sales or market you- ever! Thank you so much for reading my blog over the years!
   Tomorrow- the art quilts.

Responses like that can just destroy relationships and faith in blogging. I know many have turned to Instagram, but it is so much fluff to me. Not sure why people want to hurt others, or tear them down, leaving ugly comments or sales pushes either. I try to be wary and not get suckered in by some of them.
And I love that huge, giant, bad boy sunflower.....perfect for the last bit of summer.

My inbox gets slammed with some of those bloggers emails. I get tired of ads popping up all the time, too, on some of those bloggers sites. Don't worry about the few, remember the many (us) that don't do those things.
