Alas and alack

Blogspot is still not letting me post any photos I took over a week ago . . . even one at a time. I'm totally frustrated! I've not gotten a single answer from the blogspot help forum, either. I'm too busy right now to see if Apple can help me, and I doubt they will, as this is almost certainly a blogspot issue. I'm also thinking of taking my camera over to the Camera Company and see if I've inadvertantly set it on some hidden lock that's the problem.

Disaster Strikes

A tiny disaster compared with others that have occurred in the past week. A stone sculpture fell off our mantel and broke our stone fireplace hearth in three pieces: the sculpture didn't even get a scratch -- go figure!

The really weird thing is that just now I downloaded both this photo and one of the quilt I'm putting together, and I'm able to post this one but not the other. Why doesn't blogspot like my quilts?

I've posted a question on blospot's help site, and await assistance if assistance there is. Wish me luck, friends.

Even More Mysterious

I have a clue -- I think -- and maybe one of you can now tell me what's going on. Two to four days after I upload a photo from my camera to iPhoto, I can get it on this blog. But not before. This has happened twice now; I thought the first time I had just missed something, but tonight it happened again.

At least I can show you what I've been doing this week. Remember this very boring quilt that's been on my design wall forever?

I've been jazzing it up with these hollow cube hexagons:

I now have them all the way down to the bottom, getting darker in value all the way. And I have the setting pieces and border up too. But even if I take a photo tomorrow, I won't be able to show you for a couple of more days, until blogspot decides to accept them from my computer!

Now to put this baby together. It has to be done in half-hexagon rows, and I dasn't take more than two pieces down at a time to sew for fear of getting the pieces mixed up. So it will take me a while. I haven't dared take this off the design wall until I was ready to sew it together for the same reason, and I'm getting very sick of looking at it!

finally getting near the finish line with this quilt
beautiful snow tonight

Photo Blues

Really frustrated with the photo issues!!!! I can't figure out how to fix it, and don't have time to spend an hour or more on the phone with Apple Care, assuming they could help me. Sorry!
