I'm slightly stunned. Yesterday 340 people looked at my blog. Cool. That's waaaaay more than my average of about 60 a day.
I think most were looking at my tutorial on my fusing method. After someone asked about it on the Quiltart list I posted a link again. But it is looking like some of those visitors are coming from Yahoo groups or other mail groups. Did someone repost the information elsewhere? Fine with me, but I am curious. Of those 340 people only about 4 left comments. I wish some of them would let me know how they found me.
And if you were wondering what I did with the crow I was fusing in the demo, here is the finished piece. It will be for sale at the Portland Japanese Garden sale in July.
Yesterday Gerrie and June and I went to see the Art Train. I was hoping to have some pictures to show, but they did not allow photos. The exhibit was called "Native Views - Influences of Modern Culture". It was all work by contemporary Native American artists and it was quite a well-done exhibit with some very nice work. We were all especially impressed with how well the accompanying statements were done. The train is a little claustrophopic, (this from a person who hates tunnels and enclosed spaces, but June agreed) but the exhibit is worth seeing. If the Art Train comes to your city, I recommend it. There's a schedule on the web site.
I found your site from the quiltart list, and viewed your fusing tutorial (lovely, and quite informative!) I put you in my favorites and have returned today to look at the rest of your blog! Thanks for sharing the info on yet another way to fuse. KathyReplyDelete
Darn, wish they would have allowed pics, I explore the world vicariously through these blogs. I found your blog through the quiltart web-ring, you're on my favorites list so I check it out most days. I like your Ecuador blog, too, very interesting!ReplyDelete
Well, I confess to sharing your web tutorial with a small Yahoo art quilt group (established by Laura Cater-Woods our week-long class) I belong to. I was totally excited by your approach and wanted to share it. But there are only 11 of us, plus Laura so we certainly don't account for 360 hits!!! Congrats. You deserve the credit for your work.ReplyDelete
I have your tutorial in my notes for a post, but I haven't written it yet. I'll let you know if/when I post it at BlogHer.
There are about 2200+ people in QuiltArt, so it possible that many of them clicked in from there.
I think I found you from a link that someone had mentioned your tutorial, I took a look & have been coming back almost every day ever since.ReplyDelete
I was hoping you's tell me whether you taught your techniques. I'm part of the Alaska Fiber Festival, & we're always looking for different classes. We'll be planning for 2008 soon.
I love your crow!ReplyDelete
I found your blog as a link from Art and Quilting in Camden a great blog I found just searching blogspot.com. I check your blog everyday. As a quilter I am always looking for new ideas. Keep em comingReplyDelete
Frustrating isn't it? So many blog visitors, so few who bother to comment. A reflection of the apathy found everywhere in life, I think. I run an email quilting list with over 400 members, and there are usually only a couple of emails a day on it...don't the others have any thoughts and opinions?ReplyDelete

Hi Terry! Nice to have you visit again. Starting to feel like you and I have a bit in common!ReplyDelete
The latest crow looks great. What are you up to now?ReplyDelete
I found you roundaboutly through the QA list, and impressed as I was with the crow tutorial (I love crows!), decided to have a look around.ReplyDelete
As a chronic lurker, I have to say it isn't always apathy that prevents one from commenting, but a fear of "butting in" or simply having nothing more articulate to say than "that's really cool." It doesn't mean we don't appreciate what you have shared, and we do occasionally come out of the woodwork-though probably not enough, I know...
Your work is really cool, btw :c)
Love the raven quilt!ReplyDelete
Well, I also loved your tutorial on liquifuse and will try it when I find the stuff. I got your link from the Quilt Studio online group.ReplyDelete
Apparently we fabric people are a close group, online alot, and very quick to share good info...all good things!
I'm a little late with this but I thought I would comment, anyway - I have been reading your blog for a while now. I think I got here from a link from somebody else's blog, but I'm not at all sure who. Anyway, I am not really "new" but I'm not sure I've commented before, either. I should do better about that!ReplyDelete
