And I have ONE person to thank for dragging me out of the dark.
Wow, I didn't know what I didn't know.
After all my problems with picture resizing, and all your helpful comments, Di over at the Blue Ridge Gal, emailed me with some suggestions. She thought that maybe it wasn't a Mac issue at all, but a Blogger issue. Yup, she was right. Seems I never 'updated' Blogger, and I was using the old, out of date version, and that was my problem. With Windows, I used Irfanview, (which I highly recommend) and so it wasn't an issue, but as soon as I got the Mac, the problems with the old Blogger were quick to surface.
So Di was very sweet, and she fixed my ailing blog, and while she was at it, she surprised me with that new and spiffy header. I absolutely LOVE it.
I never would have thought to combine those particular photos, but I think they are PERFECT.
Thanks, Di. You are my HERO. New year, new look. AWESOME.
Saw this the other day in Vermont. Beautiful red barn.
But tell me, do you get this signage??
Boggles my mind.
This morning I was weaving in the old dining room, and the sun was pouring into the front hall. I opened the door, usually the hallway is cold, but I realized that Miss Puss was a reliable indicator of the temp. So as long as it was sunny, the door stayed open.This is a runner that I made this morning. It is peach and tan, with a little green thrown in for good measure. I think it ended up being 5' long.
Someone asked me if I would give up how I managed to accumulate so much fabric. It isn't a secret, that's for sure. I have spent a few years creating this stash. A great deal of it came from the 14 hour trip to and from a small town in Ontario, and then I had more shipped from there a few weeks later. I bought out the fabric from a business that was closing. The fabric was all in huge rolls.
I also bought out a weaver a few hours north of me, more rolls, and a couple of bales.
A few years back, I did a show in PA,and I met a lady who used fabric in her business. One thing led to another, and ever since, she has sent me her close out fabrics every year. In fact, there is some on the way as we speak.
I also buy some from Great Northern on occasion. I also dye a lot of fabric. Every summer, I have a dye station set up outside, and dye as often as I can.
I came home early today, made some soup and some bread, and a big tossed salad. While the bread was baking, I cleaned the refrigerator. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
