What a day in bloggerland, huh? I went into my archives to check something and noticed that several of my old photos had been replaced by the dreaded red X in a square thingy. I thought it was ME, but I checked on Blogger help message board and discovered that lots of people were having photo problems. Then I checked archives of some of my daily reads and saw that there were missing photos there too. I decided not to try to post any photos for a few hours--till the problem is hopefully fixed. Apparently my archives photos are back now but you never know... BAD NEWS: One of my favorite local quilt shops is closing. It was quite a shock and I hope that this is not a trend among quilt shops. I've certainly done my part in financial support LOL. Hopefully this closing is due to reasons other than a sluggish market in the quilt industry. GOOD NEWS: The shop is offering all fabrics at 25% off in their liquidation sale. I am on my way out the door to head there ( Liberty) to look for grays, blacks, and an accent color for Son #1's snail trail quilt and to try to find sashing, border, and backing fabric for the Lee's Surrender quilt. These will be bittersweet purchases if I find what I'm looking for.
