How to reply to any remark

Sometimes people ask me unexpected questions or say a perplexing remark.  For some comments and queries I have an answer all prepared. Will you make me a quilt? No, I don't do commission work. Will you do this mending for me? No, I have quite the pile of my own, thanks. Will you write a blog promoting my cousin's business? No, I am sorry I can't write that kind of promotion post.

But other times, I am flummoxed. My mouth opens but unless someone wants to do a quick dental exam, there's nothing to do but close it again. How to handle this? Have some prepared answers! With these at the ready you will know how to reply to any remark no matter how intrusive, off the wall or rude it is! Flip through the photo gallery and add these to your verbal bag of tricks.

Being prepared makes me Sew happy!

    My passions are quilting and sewing. Add to that French, Spanish, books, swimming, travels, new restaurants, yoga and chocolate and you have me. All of these are best shared with family and friends. Except for chocolate, don't touch my chocolate. You can email me at
