Blogger and I are Buddies


After another consultation with Jan, I changed the template to get a wider area for the posts. This post is to test out this new template. I'm much more comfortable with Blogger at this point, and am pretty skilled and moving things around. I like being able to customize the colors of things, and it really is very easy to add things to the infamous sidebar.

Still not totally sure about eliminating the ellipses between paragraphs. Might do it, might not. Guess it isn't a big deal either way.

The quilt in the photo is one I made for Caeli when she bought her condo. I'd been in a birthday block swap where I asked for 9" blocks using 30s repro fabrics in red, yellow, and blue and no other colors, on a white-on-white background. The swap yielded nearly enough for a quilt top. I made a couple more to have an even number and then made square-in-a-square blocks to use for cornerstones on the WOW lattice. I was very happy with how this quilt turned out. The combination of the gentleness of the 30s fabrics and the sunny brightness of the colors are just perfect for Caeli who is brilliant, sensitive, and funny.

GRR -- this one is one I'd really like to see closer but I can't! When I click I get the dreaded "404 ... not found" message. Is it the picture or the blogger-thing?

I can't get the picture larger either but it looks really pretty. I love those 30's fabrics.

Your blog is not showing up 25 posts everytime you add a new post anymore - so you must be doing something right! I think I will take the plunge soon.

This quilt is beautiful, thanks for the enlargement; it reminds me of the warm sunshine and gentle breezes of an afternoon in May.

I like the wide format of your page. Looks like there would be more room for words, and if you use a space between paragraphs, there would be plenty of white space too. Must consider doing that on my blog.

I totally like your new format. I'm considering taking the plunge, but I haven't decided yet. Pros, cons? Blogger ASSURES me that I will not lose any of my formatting.
