A Boring Blog


Sorry, no quilts this time.  It's difficult to blog about something interesting on a regular basis. Or whip up something fun to show you.  You've all seen enough of my Dear Jane blocks, I'm sure.  Still plugging away. So, I fear that my blogging has become a little boring lately. I'm hardly a quilting jet setter, ha ha. Jennifer M. made me feel good recently when she mentioned that she likes to read my blog anyway - even if all I write about is walking my dog! Now there's a fan for you . . . . The question then becomes -  Is a boring blog better than no blog?   I'm not sure.

Well,  this one is for Jennifer and all the rest of you out there who love me even if I'm boring to tears at times.


 More photos of a nice peaceful walk I took at yet another conservation area -

Stumbled upon two log cabins in the woods




A few weeks ago, on a cloudy day, I walked around Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.



That's all for now, folks.

Well, I don't think your blog is boring! I enjoy it very much, and appreciate it when you post. It might not seem like a lot to you, but these little snippets into the lives of other quilters means a lot to me. I enjoy cybervisiting places I will never go to, like today, Lake Geneva and the lovely walk you went on at the conservation area. I also enjoy the pictures of your quilting, no matter if you think you are making progress or not!

Definitely not boring.

You know, if we were conversing in person, we probably would not only talk about quilts. That's the way I feel about blogging. Yes it is hard to keep up with the every fast pace of the quilting world. But we do enjoy seeing other things that you enjoy. I hope people keep reading my blog, even if there are things other than quilts. Recipes, for example :-) I don't have a dog but we travel in an Airstream and sometimes I blog about that.

Keep on blogging! We'll keep on reading.

Boring? Not to me!! I think because you are so knowledgeable about quilts etc you may think your posts are boring but I enjoy every single one. Your photography is a treat to my eyes. Clearly the talent that lets you pull together fabrics for your sewing projects also spills over to picture taking.

chats with an 'old' friend are never boring. I like all that you share. love the pics of your dog walks (I live in Texas where it is dry, brown and boring this time of year, so its fun to get to 'walk' along with you). Becky

not boring at all....lovely blocks and scenery....

Ann said...

I enjoy reading all your posts and admire your talent. Ann

I really enjoy reading your blog. Even the most mundane activity is interesting when you view it from the other side of the world! I have the same problem with my blog, lots of slow hand quilting and stitching doesn't always make compelling reading. Looks like a beautiful place for a walk.

I also do not think your blog is boring! I loved your maple leaf block from the last post and am hoping to have some time to make some. I like your sign, No Pain, No Jane. I need to come up with something like that. I've been making the Sarah Morrell quilt for quite a while now and have run out of steam. The blocks are challenging for me. Have a nice weekend and thanks for taking the time to blog!

Nyla said...

I also meant to tell you I appreciated your post on cleaning your machine. I clean mine fairly regularly but it was a good reminder to do it a little more often, so thank you!

Sheila said...

Love the pictures you show while taking your walks; they are so peaceful!! Love your blog too! Sometimes we all don't have much to say but checking in is good because we love 'hearing' from you. Keep doing what you're doing as you inspire us all!! Have a GREAT Fall. Just wished it would show up here in Texas. Miss the Mid-West!!

Kathy, your blog's never boring! Your DJ blocks are so lovely and i love seeing where you walk through the woods, there's a surprise round every bend.
Wouldn't you love to have a peek inside those dear log cabins, aahh the stories they could tell!
That sweet little bird girl statue would look so nice in my garden :))

Jennifer M said...

Kathy thank you, so sweet of you ! I love your blog, as you know. Your Dear Jane blocks are breathtaking<3 Yours look perfect! Somehow mine don't look as good, most likely they will get better, You have much more experience compared to my 20 some, I will get there slow but sure: )

Beautiful walk scenery, I wish that was my property<3 I adore the sweet little bird girl statue also and we sure would have fun having a little quilt retreat in the cabins!!!

I for one never thinks your blog is boring. I never get tired of Dear Jane, and all your photos need a like button. I love seeing photos of where you have been and your walks.. So keep them coming and enjoy those walks.

Nothing boring about this blog! I enjoy reading what you are up to whether it is making Dear Jane's or walking your dog or just reading and sewing. Sometimes we all have quiet times in our lives and we need them. It is good to read what you are doing so please keep it up!

You blog is always an enjoyable read. Quilters have a lot in common so many of us like the same things outside of the quilting world - history, museum exhibits, peaceful walks, recipes, family, furry companions, etc. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the opportunity to meet new friends from all over the world through your groups.

susan hemann said...

I am new to your blog, I love your Dear Jane blocks, is there a book or patterns somewhere?

Margs Primitive Quilts said...

Your blogs are never boring! Always some great information to read and wonderful eye candy too! I LoVe the Dear Jane blocks you are working on! Absolutely gorgeous! Wow! That's a gorgeous place for walking and to find two cabins in the woods...awesome! Great pictures! Keep on posting...we love to see it all! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs Marg.

Susan M said...

No Kathy not boring at all! I never get tired of seeing your Dear Jane quilt blocks. I haven't started mine yet. You are a great photographer, writer and quilter. I would visit your blog just for photos like those maple leaf blocks and chicken pin cushion! It's OK to blog less frequently. That's why we become followers, so we don't miss a post!

bye...Hughs from Spain!!!

Kathleen I love your blog and look forward to reading it . I own most of your books and enjoy making the quilts. The history with them is interesting. You inspire my creativity. A read of your blog is like a visit with a friend. Thank you' Sharon

The word boring could never, ever describe your blog, Kathy! You share so much of YOU, your many interests - quilting, gardening, jewelry making, books you're reading, recipes, family, all that makes you YOU. I so enjoy the photos that you share too, I appreciate when you visit a quilt show or a museum, an opportunity for us to visit and see for ourselves and not miss out because we may live too far away. Reading your blog definitely makes my day, I feel like I'm having a visit from a very good friend! Thank you Kathy!!!

Kathy, your blog is never boring! I especially enjoy your blogs about walks and your wonderful photos of nature. I live in a condo with no "green space" and often go back and look at some of your nature photos for that fix!

I miss Chicagoland. All the pictures you post are new. Conservation was a new concept. Started in the 70's as I finished college lost my brains and got married.

Lake Geneva is siectscujar and a close by getaway fur walking, shopping or eating. 4 seasons. Nice.

Your doggie is my highlight and your photography. But. Yes I always have a but. I miss your blue blog. It was clever and lovely.

Blogs are time consuming to start up and keep up on a regular basis. It seems you have fans. You could have a flashback post day. Two friends that blog do this. They are fun.

Isn't it time to start baking? Hehrhe.

Jane who is out if time to just enjoy reading and chores call.

Oh stop it! You are NOT boring. I always enjoy reading your posts and love your pics, especially of places I'll probably never get to or see. Keep at it. You have lots of friends out here in Internet land. Enjoy your day!

Jan/WI said...

Love reading your blog. It's never boring to me. Your walks make me tired though just thinking about walking that far, but I love all the pictures of the scenery. Keep doing it.

linda said...

You are not boring! It is the simple joys of every day living that are important in life. Love the Bird Girl and log cabins. Do you get a sense of serenity when you walk outdoors? I do.

Your blog is not boring at all.....just like another commenter said, if you were talking to us in person, you would talk about things other than quilting....your blog is a way of sharing all phases of your life....not just quilting.....all these things allow us to get to know you better!
I love seeing all your little quilts....and your fabric choices are amazing!
I also enjoy following along on your walks! And I loved the post about your sister checking in on you to be sure you were okay, since you had not posted as quickly as she thought you should!!
So I hope you will continue with your blog, at whatever frequency works for you! All of your blog followers need the inspiration you provide...as well as getting to know you better!

Yvonne said...

Boring? Are you kidding? No way your blog is boring! I love the pictures of your walk. For me out here in the Netherlands I LOVE pictures of your walks. Your country is so beautiful! And as I am also busy making a Dear Jane I love to see your newest blocks! They are beautiful!

quiltgrannie said...

Kathy, I will never be bored following your blog. You take the most beautiful pictures and it is fun to see what you have been up too. You also have some great tips and teach us so much!!
I kind of miss your blue blog too but can surely understand why it isn't a priority. That's why I don't blog, I just don't have the time.
Well maybe if I didn't take the time to read yours I would.... NOOOO. I think I would rather spend my time following you. :o)))

Colleen said...

Boring??? No way!! Thanks for all your advice and inspiration. You keep us motivated and looking forward to "what's next".....even if it is just walking the dog..haha :)

Never boring. Just love your blog, beautiful photos. Just think, through your blog I am able to travel to places I will never see if it weren't for you and your camera. Never boring. I look for you when I have that morning cuppa.

Candee said...

Not boring to me! I love nature & it's very enjoyable to see the beautiful places near you to enjoy it. I write them down so I can go to those places when I'm in your area some day. I see that you were in my neck of the woods! Love Lake Geneva.

Nancy said...

Really like that bird girl statue. Congratulations on being brave enough to take on the challenge of making that Dear Jane....amazing blocks! I am interested in knowing if you have finished the Fit To Frame 6. I was enjoying seeing the work you and your friends were doing on them. Keep up the blog....I check in about once a week.
