A few weeks ago, I left a message on Kim’s blog offering her a book that she was looking for. When I didn’t hear back from her, I went back to her blog and gave her my e-mail address. Not long after that, I received a reply from her asking if I’d gotten the email she’d sent to my “gmail” account. gmail? Hmmmm, hadn’t I had closed that account years ago?
So, after searching high and low for my password, I finally found it, logged on and… guess how many e-mails were there!
500? Not even close
There were 2,037 e-mails sitting there which had never been read. Yep, TWO. THOUSAND. AND. THIRTY. SEVEN. e-mails. There were e-mails all the way back to 2009.
Now, you would probably say to yourself, “self, just delete them and forget you even discovered them”, right? Well, a lot of them were asking specific questions about patterns, quilts, fabric, techniques etc. The writers had probably long forgotten about their questions.
Then, I found quite a few that had been sent around the time my Mom was ill, wondering where I was. I feel terrible that I never acknowledged those. But, I feel worse about all the personal notes that were sent to me when my Mom passed away. I’m sure they would have been as much comfort to me then as they are now. To all of you who sent me condolences, thank you so much and I’m so sorry I never got back to you.
Candace at Squash House Quilts had mentioned this issue to me a few years ago, but I wasn’t sure where I put the password, and thought it was just her e-mails that were going there. She knew my “regular” e-mail, so we carried on our conversations there and I thought that was the end of it.
One of the other things I figured out was that any time I commented on a blog and the blogger answered my comment, it went into the gmail account. In other words, the conversation stopped there and probably appeared to the blogger as though I had ended it. To all those of you, I also apologize.
I have tried to figure out how to delete the gmail account tied into my blog, but can’t seem to even find where it lists that account. I’m now just checking it regularly. It just adds one more thing to my Blogger issues!
(Issue now resolved with the help of Dya who told me to check my Profile settings.... Thanks Dya! You're THE BEST)
I’m actually reading all of them and answering all the questions that I can.
If I don’t get back to you in the near future, please feel free to email me again to get whatever information you were wanting. (If you even remember) Hehe
Here are my email accounts if you want to send me a note.
Well, since I can’t do a post without a picture or two, here is what I finally put in the frame that was supposed to have the little sheep.
It’s wool on a cotton background. I got it from a Whimsicals book called “Pastimes”. I like the simplicity of it.
And here’s the March blanket from Buttermilk Basin for my little hanging sheep.
Oops, gotta get back to reading emails…
