WooHoo! Pictures!

Is it a fluke or a fix?

I tried to load pictures from Flickr. The prompt said my pictures had loaded but nothing showed up, twice. Then I made my picture files smaller. For whatever reason that seemed to do the trick although it still took forever for the photos to load.

Here's the finished version of the quilt that went to New York for the BASICS program.

I don't know whether you'll be able to see it bigger or not. I did very simple quilting so there's not much to see in that department anyway.

And here's the ATC I made up for October.

I haven't figured out what to call it yet. I just got a kick out of the juxtaposition of the whimsical skull and crossbones print and the elegant Art Nouveau lady and the spider. The beads are all pewter except for three glass trumpet flowers that are a faint pink with yellow stop beads. I had difficulties machine stitching around the edge this time. Between the fat presser foot I have to use for the blanket stitch and where I put those leaf beads there just wasn't enough room!

So now that I've finally been able to show you these two projects I wonder if I'll be able to show you what I've been working on since then?


  1. Sometimes when my photos refuse to load, I simply shut down every program and the computer. After re-booting, I open Blogger first and then try to retrieve my photo files. Most times it works (although sometimes I have to shut down and wait a while).

    LOVE the quilt that went to NY!!!!

  2. Yay! You got it to work!! My fingers are crossed that it's a permanent fix.

    Your quilt looks wonderful! I think you did a great job with those borders. And I LOVE your ATC!

  3. I can see both of them and they are beautiful. I love how your style is so 'you' ...different sides of you. Unique and special and I love that so many your fancier, bead side, too...get to come out with these projects. I love how YOU are different...just as I am..and how we use our differences to connect with others, anyway instead of staying isolated and feeling sorry for ourselves. Oh, wait...I do that, anyway ;) Each year gets harder but I am learning more and more each year and my art is freeing up as a result. I honestly believe our challenges are creating better, more creative forms of ourselves. What do you think of that idea?
