Another fall day...

Another fall day here in our corner of the world...it has actually been on the cool side all day long. It was overcast most of the day and even got a sprinkle of rain this evening. I stayed inside...I think I was outside just a couple of times.

Other than that and a friend stopping by, I have been quilting on my quilt. Not one single fleur de lis is quilted perfectly...but I am hoping once it is washed the mistakes will not be so noticeable...and really, they don't glare at you now unless you look for them. I have half of them quilted, but then there are 8 blocks that have only 3, and those 8 blocks have one side that I have to design something to fill up the space.

This quilt is made up of two different blocks...and the way I am quilting the fleur de lis...the tip of each fleur de lis fits into the block next to it. That is why only 3 will fit on the 8 blocks on the outside.

I am getting anxious to finish the quilting. I had help this evening...Bubbie came and laid on it the last one I quilted. He was testing it to make sure it meets his approval. It is usually Puss Puss that does the serous testing.

I should go down and mark some more for me to do tomorrow. I am pretty sure it takes as long to mark them as it doees to quilt them.

So, is anyone going to try the Dynamic views with blogger. I tried viewing my blogs with them, and the one thing I noticed was I did not like the comment form...it was the embedded form. But maybe if we actually used one of them, that coudl be changed. There was so much about it that I had questions about I am waiting to see someone else use it. But to be truthful, I was not crazy about any of the views.

And does anyone else ever have times where they follow someone, but they don't get the new posts? I have that happen every now and then with first one person and then another. Then the other morning, I signed in and none of the blogs I followed were there! Talk about having my heart sink for just a few seconds....but I hit the refresh button and they showed up. Thank God for that simple fix.

my "blogs i follow" list often does not update completely, meaning one or two blogs just don't show up and i completely miss that bloggers update until they update again.

once in a while, i will think of someone, go to their blog and see the update. often i just miss them.

i hope you share pictures of the quilt, when it's all done!!

I've been enjoying our cooler weather as well.

I will admit that I'm an old stick-in-the-mud with Blogger. I'm still using the old editor because it does what I want it to do.

Hi Rose, It's Fall here too. George and I went to the State Park to walk and take some photos. Got some good ones. I'll blog about it next week. I did post one photo on FB tonight... Gorgeous weather...

I have no idea what Dynamic View even is... Guess we were gone when they came out with it.. Don't have time to mess with any changes now....

I do know that sometimes all blogs that I follow will disappear --but after refreshing, they come back.

Hugs,
Betsy

I'll bet your quilt looks great when it is finished - looking forward to seeing it!
I like my blogger the way it is - I did have a look at dynamic but I think I'm with you and wait till somebody else uses it first. Quite often the blogs I follow don't show up but when I refresh they always come back. First time though i thought oh no!!! Lol

I'm sticking with the old Blogger (until they force us out!). I've not heard much good about the new . I've never been a fan of change--it rarely is for the better!

Happy Fall, Rose! I can't wait to view your completed quilt.

I have not experimented with the new blogger views yet - I hate something new!!!!!!

I'm loving the cooler weather...I can't wait to see the quilt and I'm sure it'll look just beautiful.

I'm looking forward to seeing your new quilt, Rose.

As far as Blogger's latest changes, I'll wait and see. Call me a chicken....cluck, cluck. cluck!

Your picture looks like wild mustard or ragweed. Last night when I was posting, I got a notice about going to DESIGN to see some new views or something, so I clicked on it. And it was my blog but horizontal, not vertical! I backed out immediately, guess I'm chicken for sure! Yes, on my blog sidebar, every once in a while it won't show a person, maybe for a week even. Then they will turn up and I'll see I have missed several posts. Then it will go on to another one.

I'm not sure about the things you mention with blogger. I am using the new editor and I love it, but then I have four blogs (overkill!). I was thinking your photo up there was goldenrod, but you know how much I know about stuff like that!

Finally, your quilt is surely beautiful and most people wouldn't see what you're looking at.

Mary said...

Lovely photo! You are really working on that quilt and it will be great! I think I tried to do the new Blogger thing and it told me my Windows XP was too old or something. I don't get all the blogs that I follow all the time either. Frustrating.
