    GMTA ... I was thinking much the same on the weekend.
    Sure would be nice to see the quilts that many of us made and donated blocks.

    Isn't "mid-November" about the time the layout of the forum changed? I think several people may have dropped off around that time or shortly after. I know that personally I had a horrible time trying to adjust and still haven't been able to figure all of this one out.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    Same here. I still come here and read and sometimes reply, but I still haven't been able to figure out a lot of stuff. I also think that the frustration has brought out the worst in some of us (including ME). One thread on today's edition was really brutal to a member who was only asking a favor. I'm one of those who is not computer-bright and I do what I can. I do miss a lot of the "older" members. I'm going to stick with it and learn what I can while here.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I was wondering the same thing. I almost gave up myself and find that I don't stay on as long as I used to or read as much as I used to do.

    I would also like to know where candlequilter has gone???? She has my row robin quilt top that was suppose to have been mailed on Oct. 15 and still no sign of it Everybody else in my group (Group 5) received their tops, it is so disappointing. I hope all is well with candlequilter, I'm afraid there might be more wrong than not being able to figure out the "new board"

    Oh dear ... that's certainly more than disappointing.
    Let's hope that this thread "finds" her and that your RR gets sent back to you, finished or not.

    I know that I don't even think about book marking anything anymore, because I haven't figured that out. If I see something that I like, I copy and paste it to an open word document and print it off. I also do not use the main pages, I go straight to the archives, so I can see the newest posts. It has been a challenge, and I know that I don't spend as much time here, either. So sad, because it is a great board, but the change has been hurtful to most everyone.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I Agree...I hope everything is ok with her.. It really is too bad that my post here has turned into WAR against the QB. We all know that alot of you dont like the new board, but thats not what my post is about. Thanks

    I know the change to the quilting board has been a disadvantage to most of us but as far as candlequilter, I think there must be more going on than this. She knew our maildate for our RR was Oct. 15. Mailing my quilt top has nothing to do with the changes on the board. I hope her health and her family's health is ok. I can't help but think something major might have happened in her life?????????

    I also would like to hear from candlequilter,I paid for (with fabric) for the pattern of her candlestar pp pattern but never received it, I really liked this pattern. I even sent her a email through her candle making business but still no reply, very dissappointing

    I had several PM's from and to candlequilter on the old forum. Were all of our old PM's deleted when the change happened? Were they archived somewhere?

    Did I really read the word, "several"? That is an understatement for a fact.

    I'm definitely not as happy being on board as I was. I save a thread and don't know how to retrieve. I haven't dare tried to create a post. I'm a teacher and I'm on the computer all day designing lessons, but I shouldn't have to work so hard when I'm chilling out on the board.

    I sent her an email two days ago, to tell her about this thread and people were concerned about her MIA ... so far, no response here or via email.

    I had wondered the same thing. I did follow through with the deal we made and I too miss seeing the beautiful blocks that ppl were making.
    Maybe she is busy sewing them all together
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !
