Frosty Snow Covered Flea Market Finds and no reply blogger hints...

Sewing and Knitting bits

Such a pretty hanky!

Vintage tea towel!!!!!

Oh, how I love thrift store quilting cotton!!!

It was -5 degrees Celsius this morning and that is apparently about 23 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.  BRRRR!  Fabric was still 50% off at the thrift store and I did find some lovely stuff.  The purple is over 4 metres of something called Japanese Stencil from RJR fabrics.  The green is a damask cotton.  Really nice.  I think it would be great quilt binding.  The fruit print is just awesome vintage-y cotton.  I love it!  And a nice little chunk of white eyelet because I can never resist it.

I also found a few little sewing odds and knitting bits, a lovely hanky and a gorgeous vintage linen tea towel.  Happiness on a cold day.

I wanted to mention that I love getting comments.  I think all bloggy people love getting comments!  Here is the thing though people, some of you are "no reply bloggers" and you may not realize it.  What this means is that I cannot say "thank you" or "how clever" or "I never thought of that" when you leave a comment if you are a no reply blogger.  But wait!  There is a simple fix and many bloggers have offered up this suggestion.

Here goes...

Lee from freshly pieced offers instructions on her blog post after she could not contact the winner of her giveaway.  YOIKS!  Imagine that.  So what do you need to do? Basically all comments arrive in my email inbox.  If you are a no reply blogger, your email is blocked when I try to reply.  I noticed that several people who entered my giveaway are set up as no reply bloggers!  You need to select "show email address" in order to fix it.  Otherwise, you may just be thinking that your comments are falling on deaf ears when I really do read them all and like to say something back to show you that your comments are important.  So here goes...
  1. In, click on Dashboard.
  2. Select Edit Profile.
  3. Check the box for "Show my Email Address."
  4. Save changes.

    Here is another link with pictures in case you need a bit more detail!

    And that is all folks.  I will be linking up  with Sophie's Flea Market Finds and Apron Girl's Thrift Share Monday if her link is up.  Have a lovely rest of your day!   Don't forget to enter my wee giveaway if you have not already!
