Three Questions

Question #1 is for Barbara near Richmond: Can you email me directly? Through some mysterious force, my address book has done some kind of a self-clean, eliminating a handful of addresses, yours among them. I haven't been ignoring you -- just can't write back!

Question #2 came from No-Reply Susan who wanted to know the name of the pattern I used to make dresses for Caroline.:Here it is. Friends, please keep in mind that if you send a no-reply comment, I can't reply and if you ask a question, I don't have a way to answer it!

Question #3 is for readers: What is your favorite color? This is post #1599 and has come very close in proximity to my seventh blog birthday. So I've determined that it is time for a give-away. Leave a comment, please, telling me your favorite color. When I am ready to write post #1600 (!), I'll draw a name and the winner will receive a give-away, the precise details of which are yet to be determined, but will likely include a mug rug in your favorite color.

Congratulations on 7 years of blogging! I've read your blog for about 5 of them, I think. Thanks also for offering a giveaway. My favorite color is blue.

Felicitations on such a milestone! Blue, to match my eyes.

Kim West said...

congrats on 7 years. I think I just passed my 7 year mark... but I can't remember...lol

My favorite color is lime green. It used to be (almost) any shade of green until I had two children born in August. Peridot is their birthstone; hence the love for lime green.

Blue...Congratulations on 7 years of blogging!

Donna said...

Red!! Congratulations on your blog anniversary!

Carol said...

I've always loved the peaceful, relaxing color family of blues. Now as I've gotten older, red and purple are right up at the top as well. I admire you for sticking with your blog. I love to read blogs and usually follow because of the person's quilting interest but then find I enjoy so many other aspects of it. One of those is bloggers who live in a different part of the US than I do and some in different parts of the world. Makes our lives so different in some respects, yet quilting is the common interest.

Strlady said...

I love blue but I love having some red on the side. LOL!

Vicki S. said...

Wow, time flies! Red. Definitely red.

Mary said...

Wow! 1600 posts...great milestone. I'll always love blue most, but am beginning to explore other colorways too.

Carol said...

Congratulations on your blogaversary. My favourite colour is purple.

Janet O. said...

I've caught the last two of those seven years and loved them!
One favorite color? That is tough--I just love color. I guess purple rates up there pretty high.

Cathi said...

Lime Green.

Nemo said...

Congratulations! Reminds me that I may have a blogiversary coming up too..

Jeeze, I have to choose? Well.. Black.. Or bright green. Or..or..purple or blue. No, wait! Mustard yellow!

PS (PSanafter-thought) said...

Congratulations! I don't know how I found you originally, but at that time, my daughter was living in K.O.P. and attending Sem and you are a quilter. So those two things were good enough. That must have been about 6 or 7 years ago. Favorite color: Teal!

Gretchen said...

Hooray for 7 years and here's to many many more! 1600 posts is a nice milestone to achieve. Purple is my favorite color.

Hi Nancy,

I love your blog. My favorite color is aquamarine-that color of the ocean that is just perfect!

You sound so relaxed this week!

Sue said...

Congratulations on 7 years, I've been reading about 5 years, my how time flies.
My 5 year old granddaughter Lily would tell you red but I think it might be closer to purple or a range from red to purple

Mine 2 Stitch said...

Wow. seven years already. Boy! time flies when one is quilting!!
My favorite color is blue and all its shades. Thank goodness I have three boys so there is no pink at our house but there is a little bit of red. But at the end of a hectic day, I find blue more relaxing than red. Congrats on the bloggaversary and many many more returns :)

Pat said...

7 years of blogging? You are a wonder!

I like turquoise. According to my 2 year old granddaughter, Alma, it's the color of the bad peacock at the zoo that ate her cracker and made her sad. Not chartreuse, not puce, not fuchsia, but turquoise. Bad peacock, awesome color.

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Happy Blogiversary, my friend! My favorite color is red, for what it's worth; no mug rug is necessary if my name is drawn, I already have one of your beautiful, handmade, works or art and it proudly bears my teacup now as I type! Hugs for seven wonderful years of terrific posts!

Lorraine said...

7 years....congratulations!...and thanks! Hmmm...favourite colour would have to be red

cityquilter grace said...

pcflamingo said...

Patrica said...

7 years is a milestone and 1600 posts sounds fab. My favorite color is any shade of green.

jirons42 said...

Seven years is a lot of consistency. Good for you. Red is my favorite color.

Frances said...

Wow - so many posts~ And all so readable. Green is my all time favorite color. Hard to resist fabric with any shade of green.

Sandy H said...

Congratulations on seven years! I love your blog--it's one of my "must reads" even when I get horrifically backlogged and have to just ditch a bunch of blogs to catch up; I always read yours! I'm not sure I have a single favorite color--I have favorite color combinations (purple and green, blue and brown). If I had to choose a single fave right now I seem to be in my Turquoise Period.

Annemiek said...

Congrats from me too and keep it up please:)
I agree with Lisa: there's only RED

Char said...

Wow 1600, that's a lot of posts!
Right now I'd say my favorite color would be aqua.

Lori said...

Who thought we could make so many posts and not run out of something to write about!?!
It's so hard to choose just one color but I'd have to say red.:)

Barbara Anne said...

Cheers for your upcoming 1600th blogging anniversary! Oh, goodie! A giveaway!!

Favorite color? Add an "s" to make colorS and I'll say blue, green, blue-green!!

I'll send you an email, too.

Hugs!

Quiltdivajulie said...

"Favorite" color ?? ALL of them (well, almost all) :-)

Greens are high on the list, purples/pinks, then the blues family.

Thank you for sharing yourself with us -- here's to the next seven years!!!

Judi said...

Many, many congratulations on your 7 blogging years - a real record.

I'm a purple girl.

LizA. said...

7 & 1600 -- wow! Congrats! Favorite color, how can I pick just one when there are so many lovely ones in the crayon box.....today it might be blue, tomorrow purple, the next day green or red. They're all wonderful, even, dare I say it, orange, my least favorite color.....

Suzan said...

As usual...late to the party! My fav color today is blue. Congrats on seven years. Whoo hoo!

Leland said...

My favorite is teal--whatever that means. It seems to mean different things to different people and I like them all. And let me compliment you on the grace you have shown during the trauma of the past months. I have followed with much interest and much sympathy. Congratulations on what sounds like the perfect position for someone with your caring nature.

Sandra said...

nnextI am drawn to teal in everything: fabrics, paint, clothing.

HouseDragon said...

Congrats! Love purple: light, dark, doesn't matter as along as it's purple.

Bobbi said...

Oh red, you know my favorite color is red! To me, it's a neutral, everything goes with red.

I just spray painted a side table for my bathroom, shiny shiny fire engine red and I LOVE it.

Vicki said...

My favorite color? Chartreuse...like the first hint of Spring in leaves on a tree. Love, love, love it!! Congratulations on all your posts.... Looking forward to 1600 more!

Melinda said...

My favorite color is still lime green.

Kathie said...

anne bebbington said...

Seven years Nancy - wow! Congratulations - my absolute favourite colour is that gorgeous jewel colour which is a cross between teal green and peacock blue - gorgeous!!!

Quayquilter said...

Looking at my quilts my favourite colour must be green. This may be to do with the fact my maiden name included the word "green" or may have some psychological significance unknown to me.
Congratulations on so many thought provoking interesting blog posts.

Anna McCurdy said...

Nancy- Wow That is one terrific accomplishment. My favorite color are purple and pink.
I hope that you have a fabulous Mother's Day.
Warmest regards,
Anna

suz said...

Nann said...

Yellow!
And congratulations on your blogging milestone.

Glenda in Florida said...

I've enjoyed your blog for years,and check every day for a new post. I always say that my favorite color is purple, but I suspect that deep down, it is really blue. I'm real partial to orange as well, as I participate in an orange quilt challenge every year.

Blue Ridge Mountains said...

RED! I enjoy your post and some have been quite uplifting for me.
