Quiltmaker & Christmas Lights!

I got a great email from June, the editor at Quiltmaker!

She writes:
I wanted to let you know I’ve got a posting live now about Christmas Lights, a Bonnie Hunter special offer, and a giveaway of your books.

I hope you have a chance to LINK back to us ;-)

*note* The special offer is linked to the right in my side bar :c)

The link will take you to Quiltmaker's Blog page....with a wonderful name of QUILTY PLEASURES! Leave a comment mentioning your favorite quilt-related blog by 12 noon Mountain time on Friday, June 19 and they will select 5 different people to win a copy of Scraps & Shirttails!

I have to thank June for writing such nice things about the visit I had with them last July. It really was a blast and I hope to see them again if I ever get back to Golden.

Thanks to the responses on yesterday's post....it confirms what I thought, that the problem lies with IE, specifically IE 8. There was only ONE person standing up for IE...but the fact remains that the other browsers don't have a problem with blogger's interface, just IE. I'm not picking on IE...just have experienced many weird issues with them that I haven't with the other software. For instance, when I upload anything, change a format, add anything to my side bar...I have to check all the browsers to see that it works in all. If there *IS* ever a problem...it's with IE. So I don't think I'm "picking on" IE in any unwarranted fashion, the facts have proven time and time again that they have problems where the other browsers don't.

If you ARE experiencing problems with IE 8...maybe if you switched back to IE 7 those problems would go away. Or just wait it out. Or get Firefox :c)

No quilting commenced yesterday. Though the elephant had moved, that meant that I had other things to do around the house that took up my time instead. In other words, if you feel better, don't you think you need to be doing laundry and dishes and mopping the floor and cleaning bathrooms instead of just playing with quilts? Yeah yeah yeah...the guilt got to me since I had been gone since Friday....and nothing had been done since then because I came home with the crud!

So today..I have high hopes. We'll see where they lead me!


  1. Just ordered the Bonnie Hunter special! Can't wait for it to arrive!

  2. Or get Chrome, it is very good. Congratulations on your Magazine Mystery!!

  3. Hi Bonnie,
    Always lovely reading your blog from down under Aust.

    Well done the magazine QM Mystery.
    I'll go check it out!

    Looks like everything back to normal on your blog.

  4. Congrats on your latest mystery, and QM feature! I may have to jump on board.

  5. Love your new mystery, think I have an idea of what it could be , but will keep it to myself until you reveal the final clue. So i'll be playing along.

  6. I haven't seen you mention it here, but I am reading the June/July issue of Quilter's Home and you are the #1 Designer Website that Mark's Posse reads and the #4 website overall. (pgs 16-20). Congrats!!!
