A Conundrum - Edited in Red

I have a problem.  A couple of weeks ago I sent a photo of a quilt I made to Sew Sisters.  It was part of a challenge they gave all of us in the Bargain Lover's Club.  I'll show it again in you missed it.

Initially I thought the quilts would be judged by the Sew Sisters staff.  But now it seems that anyone can vote for their favourite - like 'best in show',  'most original' etc.  So what's my dilemma?

The voting isn't set up to just click on a box.  In order to vote an email has to be sent to Sew Sisters.  It seems like a lot of work, but the part I am uncomfortable with is this.  When you send an email, the party you are sending it to automatically gets your email address.  That seems a bit invasive to me.  I can't ask folks to make their email addresses available to Sew Sisters.  They could use it to send out all kinds of store related sales and events and other nuisance mail that others might not want to receive.  After talking to some quilty friends today, I now feel that it really is not such a big deal.  Emails can be deleted.  I am going to leave this up to my blog readers.  If you feel like voting, then by all means, do so.  I would really appreciate it.  

So what do you think?  Am I being neurotic?  Should I just ask my blogging friends to please vote for me?  I think the voting ends on Monday.  The voting actually ends on Tuesday, March 6th.

In case you want to do just that, go here.  That will take you to all the entries.  Some of them look really good so it might be a nice place to view some eye candy.  My entry is number 31.  Sew Sisters email address is on that page.

Now for something springlike.  The snow we got a few days ago is all gone.  In fact it was all gone by the end of that very same day.  I bought these tulips when I went shopping last week.  They brought me joy all week long as I watched them open up.  They have a lovely springy fragrance too.

Thanks!

I love your quilt and I think you are just protecting us because I am sure you wouldn't want your email used for such purposes and so...thanks....

Love your tulips.....and I don't care if they have my email address. If I get "junk" email, I either don't read it or read it and delete, so I went and voted for you!

I just gave my vote to your quilt! Very pretty (o:
Lovely tulips, with such a soft color.

Thanks for the heads up Hetty. If they start sending junk mail I will just unsubscribe. I suspect why they might be doing it this way is so that they only get one vote per person. There are ways of setting this up where when you vote it recognizes your computer but you need to know some computer stuff and I suspect these folks aren't there.

You have my vote and good luck.

Your quilt is lovely. And I don't think you are neurotic but being considerate of others. A very good quality.
