Testing, 1-2-3 Testing



Many thanks to my technically talented cyber friends, for their guidance in downloading photos to Blogger. The problem I was having was, my photos wouldn't enlarge when clicked. Apparently, when you compose a draft in Blogger, you mustn't move or drag the photos within a post. If you need to reposition them, cut and paste instead. It's still gobbledegook to me, but I'm getting the hang of it.

Let’s give it a try. Click on the photos in this post. If they both enlarge, leave me a comment telling me so. I’ll enter your name in a drawing to celebrate my newfound blogging skills.

The prize will be a collection of red, white and blue reproduction fabric squares. I’ll keep the drawing open for two weeks (November 20).

I almost forgot to tell you about this little quilt. It’s a One Patch pattern, made of 1” squares (don’t worry, the prize pieces will be bigger) of Harriet Hargrave fabric. It's backed with a corn meal sack from our local grist mill. I've actually got yards of this Hargrave fabric, yet this is the only project I've managed to complete, using it!

  3. They enlarge beautifully *s* Congratulations on the milestone post and your new skill, too. I must admit that my photos enlarge, but I have no idea how or why . . . no brains, no headaches *S*

    Diane, that corn meal sack is REALLY NEAT, too. That's something that could inspire a girl. ;)
