I feel your pain!
I have wracked my brain around why it works for some, and why it doesn’t work for others.
There isn’t anything that I have done to change settings, and often if you come back later in the day or the next day it works ---why? Not sure! But I have a hunch it is how many people who are viewing the slide show at the same time --- perhaps?
I’ve looked for alternatives, and have not found a free site that will host a slide show that I can imbed as still photos within the blog page the way that skydrive does. Some slide show folks will crop the photos at a weird angle or they pan this way or that, putting the photos in motion –and it’s even more frustrating than this. I’ve tried photobucket, I’ve tried smile box I’ve tried what used to be webshots that is now something else.
I’m staying with this method. It works for MOST. And I haven’t been able to find anything that works for all. The only other alternative would be to stop doing them all together, and I’m not happy with that option, are you?
I do know that the accounts fill up – there is only so much space, so I started a new account for this batch and this is a test run to see how it goes!
But first I want to share with you the wall of quilts from the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative!
It was so amazing to see the quilts from near and far ---and to read the stories that go with each and every one! I know that this is the last year for the initiative…..so if you’ve ever wanted to participate, now is the time!
The wall seemed to go on forever…..My classroom was opened at 8am, and I’d go let the students in to start setting up, and then sneak up here before class started at 9am and study and read another section. Each little quilt shares a story, and makes a difference. If you have a chance to see a display of the AAQI quilts anywhere near you, go see them!
Test Slide Show --- let’s give this a go!
These are a handful of other quilts that caught my eye for various reasons….it was a WONDERFUL show! As usual for me, I don’t take a photo of every quilt in the show, just the ones that speak to me for whatever reason. Sometimes it’s just a shot of the quilting, or the border, or I liked the colors ---
Today we catch up on on the mail that came in between the Sunday I left for Houston, and yesterday, the Sunday I arrived home from Indiana. The laundry from the suitcase is already going ---and I don’t have plans to get out of my jammies until it’s time to take book orders to the post office!
The house is quiet. I’m home alone. I love days like this after a long trip gone ---
