THE FWS PONY CLUB Quilt-Along Wk 9 Children's Delight & County Fair Discussion Page
Here we are almost 2 months into our trailride. I only have the one block for this week done. I did manage to do a little catch up with last week's clover blossom. Anyone count the pieces in County Fair...I did ...twice!! :( there are 65 of them little rascals...I'm dreading this one. There is an extra thread this week...Guess what it will be ??? :D

I chuckled when I saw that you used Christmas fabric for your Children's Delight. I made mine last week (I have to work a week ahead just in case....) and I also used Christmas fabric. I guess great minds do think alike LOL. Hard to believe we're at week 9 already. I did Clover Blossom and it was a booger-those triangles are tiny! Hopefully will get pics up tomorrow, just got home from work. We did sports physicals and the kids came after practice--I smell like an old tennis shoe. Off to the shower!!

Back to computer nightmares for me...after I did get the photos loaded in Picasso and sized, QB is not opening up options to post them but kicking me out each time. It will not do the third tab in now, QB techs advise going from Windows 7, verison 9, back to verison 8; now if I knew how to do that...I would work for a tech company. Yep. More $$$. I did get the blocks done, and photographed and loaded in my computer with other FWPC blocks..took them through Picasso to resize them right. No luck. We hope tomorrow will bring answers; sleep on it and see if any thing comes to me that might work. More chocolate maybe.

So sorry QNS! Computer problems always annoy me so much! Hope you get yours solved real soon.

Yes Honchey I did count those pesky little pieces, but once I started it went together surprisingly easy. I am going to try and get a little ahead in the next few days as I won't be going anywhere, or should I say can't go anywhere. Mother Nature has dumped over 10 inches of rain on us in the past 24 hours and the highway is closed both north and south of town. There is also localised flooding in town but lucky we are out of a flood prone area. DH only just made it home today.
That's what I get for living in the tropics, should be used to it as it does happen every year:(

Sent yur extra rain this way; the USA could really use it. Well, this week's photos will not happen. Hope BIL can help when he comes down this week. Meanwhile, at least I can enjoy everyone else's beautiful blocks!!

Hi, with the new QB forum the picture size needs to be smaller. I discovered by accident reading a message in the "help" page at the bottom of the "forum" by Patrice telling another member that you can resize your photos in Microsoft "paint"...I, like you, QNS could not upload my photos because they were too big and getting the message "QB is not responding" You can reduce the size by percentage or pixels...since doing that I have been able to upload the photos. You can find it in the toolbar when you're viewing your photo by clicking on "open" then "paint". it gives you several choices on what to do...it will not permanently change the size until you click on "save" after you "close" the photo page....play with a photo you are not concerned about losing. I hope this helps...it worked for me! H

I have been opening my photos in piscis...the Google program..and it automatically reduces it to 800 something which i can then crop and save and it works well for me. Looking forward to seeing your pics, QNSue.

Stop it!!! All this geek-talk is hurting my head!
I know it's necessary ... and poor
QNSue as she can't post her blocks. And Poor Us too as now we just have to sit and wonder what creativity she came up with this week!

MiraB ... so glad you are not in a flood zone with that much rain.

OKSGlad, GGal and JanRN ... please check in and tell us you're OK!!! I just saw on the news the tornado-like damage in Branson last night and Buffalo today. So I'm hoping it didn't catch you ladies at all. Storm is starting here, but I don't think it's going to amount to much more than snow and drifting. At least, I hope!

CountyFair ... like MiraB, I didn't find it that hard ... just those 65 pieces and how many sections tend to overwhelm us. Time and patience and it came together OK ... and oh so rewarding once you see it all done.
