Could You Help Me, Please?

I need your help. I know first hand that quilters are some of the most giving of helpers, so I'm counting on you!

A Blog List is a list of blogs I follow regularly and should appear in the right-hand column (web version). Awhile back, and I can't even say when, my Blog List disappeared. I do not remember the last time I saw it, and when I realized it was gone, it surprised me because I didn't remove it intentionally.

I have recreated the list by using some of the most recent commenters and from my browser history. There are many more that I've lost.

And this is where I could use your help. If you have a blog you love to follow, send me a comment or some other form of a message, and I will get to work trying to rebuild my list.

Just to make sure a pretty quilt picture appears in today's more business-like post, how about having a look at an oldie. This is one of the first quilts I made after I retired. It might very well get sent off to be quilted in the very near future. The pattern is, what else, Thimbleberries. I enlarged it by one row in both directions, so this is quite a big quilt. Those plain setting squares seem to invite a pretty hand-quilted wreath or feather, but it is highly unlikely that I will get into that anytime soon. Long-arm is more likely.

Short and sweet for today, folks!

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. someone else on blogger recently mentioned that they lost their blog list also, that one day she opened her blog to update and the list was gone! Every now and then I try to remember to print my list out so I have a copy on paper. I do not know if you had my address as I just found you recently - I have no idea which blogs you have followed in the past but hope you find the ones you are looking for and find new ones in the process.

  2. Patchwork Times
    Pages from Me
    Quilting Twin
    Stitched in Color
    A Handmade Life
    Koka Quilts
    Dining Room Empire
    Crazy Mom Quilts

  3. So it wasn't just my blog, then! I just noticed a few days ago that several blog/link lists were gone and I, too, have been trying to recreate them. I know you'd recently added my blog to your list (Thank you!) and your blog was on mine.

    I hope you're able to get close to your original list, Jayne.

  4. I hate it when technology backfires on us! Argh!

  5. hope you find everyone you wanted to find. it stinks when stuff like that happens mysteriously

  6. It's actually something that Blogger has done and is trying to fix it. The article I read said to either start to put them back on yourself or wait until the problem is fixed. (and they will reappear) :-( All of mine have disappeared too :-( I'll wait to see what happens this week.
