Friday Night Sew-In

Here is a glimpse of my Joy Luck Schnibble. I've finished quilting and started binding. It would have been nice to have finished and shared my whole quilt but here is what happened in the midst of my sew-in. I checked my blog and much to my surprise the background is completely white and I have this little photo bucket thing scrolling back and forth. This sent me into a bit of a panic and with that came a headache. I'd already been feeling a little out of sorts all day and wondered if I could have been catching a bug son #1 had around me earlier in the week. SO...I closed up shop on my sew-in a tad earlier than I wanted, popped two Motrin and went to bed early.

My blog will have to keep for a bit and I'm quickly posting as my guys are waiting for me to head out the door.....toodles.

It's most likely your blog background is no longer being hosted. It happens sometimes with the third party background sites.

Sue said...

Sure hope you are back on the mend soon. Not feeling bad.

The quilt looks wonderful as does all of your beautiful quilting!

Take care of yourself

Denise :) said...

I hope you're feeling better today! Enjoy your Saturday and I'll look forward to seeing a full shot of the quilt! :)

Cindy said...

Mary, I LOVE your color choice. Yeap, that's a beauty- and I KNOW the WHOLE quilt is beautiful.

FYI - That little photo bucket thingie is now gone but the color white remains.

Strlady said...

Ah, your quilt looks so good. I love the colors. BTW: the problem with your blog is just that the background image is lost/not hosted. If you still have the image you can just add it directly to your template and you won't have this problem again.
If you need help, let me know.

I've visited at least 6 blogs today that have the same issue with the photobucket image. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Darlene said...

Joy Luck is beautiful - sorry you're feeling a bit out of sorts. Feel better soon!

Pat said...

I, too, have seen that little photobucket thingee saying this image has been removed on SEVERAL blogs since yesterday, I believe. If you scroll carefully, you can still read everything on the blog...it's more of a nuisance than anything else. Your quilt is looking good, though!

Hope you feel better soon. I love your Joy Luck quilt. Did you use your Jo squares you cut a while back? the fabrics are beautiful! And you already know what I think about your quilting. :)

Needled Mom said...

Your Joy Luck looks wonderful! I HAVE to get mine pieced today.

I was wondering what that little box thingy was!

Rita said...

I love the fabrics in your Joy Luck. Hope you're feeling better soon. Take care.

What a beautiful quilt...another Schnibbles to add to my list...

Karen said...

hope the headache is better today. Love the Joy Luck Schnibbles. Your fabric choices are lovely.
Will look forward to seeing another photo when time permits?? I'm greedy like that! Love to look at lovely quilts.

Stephanie said...

Computer gremlins perhaps? Hope you feel better. Very pretty schnibble. At 1:07 PM EST the photo bucket thingie is still there as well as the white background.

Your Joy Luck looks great. Hope you are feeling better.

Pat said...

SDame thing happened tpo my blog, and has happened before. The Cutest Blog person sometimes renames/reconfigures her images. You will need to go into her web site & either find the background you were using, or pick a new one. Copy the code & paste it into your HTML widget, then save. Worked for me. The background is back and the annoying floating thingy is gone.

Loris said...

Sorry about the background prob...it may be a website issue that they will fix themselves...hope so anyway.
Love the Schnibbles and it's fabric. Beautiful.
Hope you are feeling better.

Stina said...

Hope you do feel better by now... Love the little peek of your Joy Luck.. still wrestling with mine!!! :o))

Micki said...

Hope you feel better and I love your colour choices...lovely!

Karen said...

You are on a real Schnibble roll!

Kaaren said...

Looks like the person who created your blog background needs to update her Photobucket account. All you have to do Mary is change your background from many of the free templates around or use the new Blogger designs.

Joy Luck looks super!

Feel better soon my friend.

Sue-Anne said...

The same thing happened on my blog yesterday! I was in a real panic and went back to the website I downloaded it from and reloaded it and hopefully I wont have any more trouble.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

QuiltSue said...

I noticed your background had disappeared, but assumed you'd done it on purpose. I've also seen this week on a couple of other sites, a notice at the top LH corner warning "your background expires of Friday" so perhaps it's to do with that?

Hope you're feeling better now?

Lori said...

Cute!!! I'm still trying to fight off the remnant of my cold. I hope you do't get it!!

Tins and Treasures said...

Good Morning,
I hope your headache was gone by morning. Did you get to work on your quilt yesterday? My Friday Night Sewing was cut short too. The Jazz Group Cookout was rained out, and hubby was home early.

Have a great day. ~Natalie

Rose said...

I can't wait to see the finished quilt...I really like what I am seeing.

Angie said...

Great success with your FNSI! Way to go :)

Shakerwood said...

Cutest Blog chick had used up all her photobucket space and had to switch to a different host. She had a notice on her website that it was going to go out on Friday. I just new 'cause I happened to be on her site. She still has your original one (and all the others) on her new site.

Your feeling miserable because of this heat. Just thought you would like to know that I have a long-distance diagnostic degree! LOL At least that is my excuse. I have to go grocery shopping but plan on going out at 10:30 tonight....it's gotta be cooler then!!

Kim D. said...

Hi Mary, Beautiful quilt! I see the photo bucket symbol. That must be so frustrating. I hope the problem is solved soon.

Barb said...

hope you're feeling better - great quilt-
take care

Stitched With Prayer said...

Mary, I hope you are feeling better than you were Friday night and it didn't turn into anything worse and spoil your weekend. Your Joy Luck Schnibble looks wonderful. I can't wait to see a photo of the entire thing. Hugs coming your way.

Vivian said...

I'm catching up on some blog reading and hope all is well with you by now. I'm still finding a little PhotoBucket thingie rolling along as I read, so the problem must continue.
Your quilt is lovely.

Tins and Treasures said...

Hi, Mary,
No package yesterday...but you better believe me, I am excited for this one and will let you know as soon as I open it up!

Getting ready to go back to mom's to clean out her apartment and turn in the keys. Leaving sometime tomorrow. Have a terrific Tuesday. ~Natalie

Thanks!
