Photos At Last

Well, it's been a bit of a frustrating time, but I finally got to where I can post photos again with Blogger. I had to get rid of everything I had updated or installed before the glitch. This included Picasa, some Google stuff and an updated version of IE. From talking with others, I've learned that the new version of IE is a troublemaker and is to be avoided.
On top of that, as Jane Ann pointed out, Picasa does not play well with the new Blogger.
Ok, now to repost my WIP Wednesday.

This is the sketch I have chosen for my first new piece in the "ladder" series. More about that later.

Here is the start of the ladder piece, to be revealed when it is my turn at the Quilt Studio next week. If you haven't visited yet, go on over and see what people have been posting.

Here are the bright fabrics I have been auditioning for my kid's quilt donation for the 40 Quilt Service Project. I found some very cute "robot" fabric on the sale table at one of my favorite quilt shops and got enough for backing and some to use in the quilt. I have already "fussy cut" all the robot squares, and my happy little robots will be framed in a variety of bright fabrics.

I am delighted to be starting a three day weekend. Even better, I am going to a sewing marathon tonight with my quilting buddies. We have our meals and contributions all planned and some of us are taking along our aero beds to spend the night. We had a blast when we did this last summer, so I am looking forward to it.

Oooh, I like that robot fabric!

Love the bright colors for the kids quilts - every time I see some it makes me smile. (Maybe some of us "adults" need a kid quilt!)

Wonderful to see you in living color again! Can't wait to see how your ladder piece turns out--and I do hope you take pictures at your slumber party. The last one looked so fun--envy, envy here.

PS IE7 was what caused me to rebel and switch to Firefox as my browser and thence to WordPress. I've been calm ever since the initial introduction to each!

I love the ladder design. Can't wait to see it develop.

The robot quilt is going to be a cute one!

Can't wait to see the ladder piece revealed. Cute fabric for the kids quilt.

The robot fabric is too cute!

I guess I'm one of the few that loves the new IE7. I really like being able to open multiple sites on different tabs without having to open multiple browsers. I think Netscape does this too. I've also used Picasa for a couple years now and love that too. I upload all my photos to a Picasa web album before posting to Blogger.

Glad to see things have been worked out for you!
