I obviously haven't been on here forever.  Going to try to become more active.  I want to disable my Facebook account and I sure want to come to retreat this coming year.  Is the ugly fat quarter a particular fabric or just any ugly fabric?

Well, luckily, being on FB has nothing to do with the Retreat.  As you remember, all you gotta do is be active on the forum and get your registration postmarked on the appropriate day.   The 2020 Retreat hasn't been announced yet but when it is, it will have its own thread.


I hear ya about deactivating FB.  It can be excessively annoying.  I finally went through (quite a while ago) and culled all the "friends".  If their posts made me angry, out they went.  It's *my* FB account and I don't need to get angry reading it.    What my FB account is now made up of is almost exclusively craft groups and crafting friends.  I do have family members on there, too.  I also make it a point to (almost) never post anything that requires a lengthy or serious reply/consideration.  FB is just not the venue for that because people are *SO BRAVE* behind the firewall of their computer.  They say things and in such a way that they would never do if they were face to face.   That's pretty cowardly.   But, for the most part, those kinds of people are no longer on my FB list, and once again, FB is a fluffy and pleasant place for me to be.  :-)

I only kept it because of my quilting friends because it annoys me so much, but I have most on Instagram and then all of you guys I can find better by coming back here.  I just get so tired of all the rants and stuff on FB.

As long as you check in on the forum you should be fine.  I have never posted the retreat notice on FB.    The ugly FQ is fabric we received last year during a game we played.  It was a sort of pass around game and whatever FQ was in your hand at the end of the game was yours to take home and create the challenge for this year.  I have to tell you that the fabric I ended up with was lovely and some of the others liked their FQ too.  Why don't you pick out something from your stash and make something from it?  As usual, this challenge is optional.

Sounds good.  I am sure I have quite a few uglies.  grin

Yep. I'd rather give them a banana for diarrhea or some juice for the opposite instead of drugs, at least for the first try. Our bodies can only take so much...start small! (not everyone agrees with me, but if it works, why pull out the big guns?)

I was getting sick of FB around the time of election stuff (for president) and asked what I could do to get rid of that stuff--all the arguing and slander were making me loathe to go look at people's pictures and posts. Someone pointed out Social Fixer, an extension (kinda like an app) you download for your browser. With it, you can filter most politics out! It's fabulous. It made FB great again! :P  (ha ha!) Just FYI

It is not something that can be fixed. I am tired of people feeling like I have to be friends with them on Facebook just because we are related etc..  I recently went through and deleted a bunch of people including all of my nieces and nephews who I didn’t follow and who seemingly didn’t follow me. I also unfriended a sister in law that I don’t care much for and whose was the same as my nieces and nephews on Facebook.  Months later she went to invite me to something and noticed we weren’t friends on Facebook.  She told my brother that he “must have poisoned me against her and so she was going to leave him.  (She didn’t end up leaving, but how stupid to blame me for her marriage problems).   I also hate to comment on anybody’s stuff because then the notifications get annoying so for me I just like other avenues of connecting better.

Well maybe you’ll have to forgo the “steamy” parts ;0(. 
I’m glad they’ve got it under control.
