Amazing What One Can Find in the Sale Bin /My Pinterest Conclusion

I'm back on the coast, escaping the 25cm of snow, that fell back home, on the weekend. Best of all, I brought two fellow Blockheads with me......not only are they my quilting buddies they are wonderful friends. You know the kind....the ones that make you laugh until you cry, they are both cackling, in the background as I type.

The first order of business was a little Shop Hopping!!!
I can sniff out a bargain a mile's amazing what one can find, in the sale bins!!!
Next, I wanted to thank all of you, that gave your extremely, helpful, comments regarding Pinterest.

Here is what I've concluded:
  • If you are going to pin.....allow your work to be pinned, only fair, I think.
  • Make sure the name of the person who's work is being pinned is mentioned.....not just the name of the blog that happens to have that person's work, on their blog. The blogger is probably giving credit, but I feel it is our responsibility to do the same when we pin.
  • I agree that once you put your work out there you loose a fair bit of's the nature of the beast.
That said....I will probably use Pinterest somewhat, or maybe a lot, I'm not sure yet. Personally, I want to be very careful that I give credit where credit is due. Thanks again, for taking the time to comment, I found it very helpful. I was answering all my comments on this subject Deborah O'Hare brought my attention to this blog post. This is a very worthwhile read. 

After reading about Pinterest being a Haven for Copyright Violations I might be putting Pinterest to Rest, for me that is.

I'll keep you posted.


  1. Good plan to go back, the snow is pretty but the roads are a bit messy for now. The fabrics you bought are lovely and I am glad you figured out a plan about pinterest. I do my best to make sure that I can give credit, as I totally agree with you on that.

  2. Marianne, very interesting viewpoints... as for me, I was introduced to Pinterest way back in the beginning and I have intentionally tried to stay away...but for different reasons possibly than others. It is a huge time sucker...literally...I have addiction issues as it is... to wonderful blogs like yours as well as Machine Quilting Resource. I have noticed a couple of my quilts that have been pinned and I am flattered, however, I only have so much time in my day...Keep up the good work with your blog!
