Well, everything seems to be working with the new blogger. The only difference I discovered is when I sign in to Google, I have to put my email address. I don't remember saying that I wanted that as my log in. Maybe it's automatic?
Calidore, so sorry to hear you had problems making the change and had to start a new blog. I have not yet made any template changes. It said mine was outdated. I guess I will have to update it to get the categories, etc. I am afraid to attempt the update because that is probably where the problems begin. I personally like a plain template. All that clutter of stuff all over is distracting to me. I would like to just keep the one I have.
A few of you asked about the bean pots. Yes, I do use them when I make baked beans to take to a pot luck, which is not very often. There is just nothing that looks more homey than baked beans in a bean pot. If I ever have a sandwich & salad buffet at my home, I will use a bunch of them for all the salads. I think that would be neat. You know how I am all into the presentation of tables.
All week long I worked on making these little 3-inch blocks for the next border of my snowman quilt.
I thought I would pick up the mitten & button colors.
After spending 4 days making them, I decided they just weren't doing it for me. As much as I hated to I had to start all over. I will save these for some other quilt. It will be wonderful to have them all finished and ready to sew on when the time comes.
After tossing around a few alternate ideas, I chose to stick with the red and blue colors. I wanted a somewhat intricate pieced border, but something a little easier than the blocks above (which took about 20 minutes per 3-inch block).
I decided on this:
I think I like it.
