Hello

Hi, I’m Helen. (I chose the most flattering pic I could find, of course).
I notice as my blog gets older, I get less concerned about the anonymity factor. I notice that happens a bit in blogland, there are pictures of the bloggers and more and more often as people, well, crafters, go into business, they publish their name and their address too. Are we getting slack? Are we weighing the risks of identity fraud and harm to our children, and deciding we don’t need to be anonymous? It would gag me too much I think, if more of you knew exactly who I am. So I won’t tell you my surname, and I guess you could probably figure out where I work, but I’ll keep trying not to talk about that either.

H is most definitely for Helen. You can call me Pixie around here.

You brave Pixie you! Great photo too by the way, easily as good as the many I still have and the "others" I am holding for bribery.

Hi Helen :)

Hi to you too. Yes, the anonymity factor. There has been a bit of talk on quilt lists about identity theft, so, umm, yes, I use my real name in my email address. Naughty me!! But I figure people who know me at least know my email is not spam. I'll let you know how I feel about identity theft when it happens.
