Pin It Weekly #290 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Welcome back to Pin It Weekly! You're going to think I'm on a food obsession with this post, so I'm going to introduce one follower and post something other than food. (But the others are all about fun food, so get ready to get hungry.) 

Cary Wagy is one of the new followers whose give her boards fun, titles, like "cute food for entertaining."

Hey folks! Happy weekly! Meet some new followers with amazing boards. Irene Borjas, for example, has a DIY obsession, which means many boards with DIY ideas. How do you like this one called corazones, Spanish for hearts?

Happy weekly! Did you know that you can send messages and pins to other people? I haven't really taken advantage of that feature, but A. Moreno has. She sent me this funny poster about aging:

Getting older

I think that deserves a bit of recognition. So here are some pins from her "desserts" board. After all, isn't dessert just a fun as funny?

Florence Unwin has several interesting boards, but the one titled "dress" I must share!

I missed last week's PIW because I was volunteering at Beta convention. Now that it's over, and I've recovered, I'll help babysit grandies while we pass the crud around like we're playing hot potato. Ryder is in the hospital, Marley and Sophie both are running fevers, and Milly's little nose is raw from being cleaned so often.

The horizontal asymmetry brings ambivalence to the design, yet is balanced as it its placed in the very center of the space. The block type in both halves portraits the ideas and feelings of the person. I appreciate the contrast of cool and warm colors in order to reinforce the message.Here's something a little different.

Jade ProsserI'm terribly sorry that I didn't post a Sunday Quilt Inspiration this week. I just wasn't feeling it, as my students used to say. Tell a teacher that about an essay!

Anyway, I owe ya an SQI, but Wednesday is when I generally post a PIW (Pin It Weekly) and since I've not been feeling too Pinteresty, I thought it might be time to highlight a few ideas from others.

Bloggers You Follow Post 7 :: Write 31 Days from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Most bloggers have followers that they can write about. That's what we discussed in Post 4 (here). Yet, bloggers are also followers ...and we all have favorite blogs that we return to again and again. There are a couple of good posts right there on your sidebar. 

The reasoning behind the idea is pretty straight-forward: as a long-time reader, you have had the opportunity to get to know the blogger, having interacted with her blog, emailing her on occasion, and maybe even meeting her in person. Conventions and shows provide a wonderful opportunity to match a person to the ...

As I often do, I'll ask that you put yourself on the other side of the pen. Consider this: if a blogger friend emailed and asked you for an interview to post on her blog, how would you respond? Would you tell your friend no? Most likely you'd be positive about ...

How are things in your Pinterest? My little corner of Pinterest has a follower by the name of Blinking Cat who has many boards that you may well enjoy.  These few come from his/her tatting board, but there are boards for knitting, sewing, crafting, quilting, kids, blogging and, oh, so many more. It's just easier if you go there.
