NOW I've gone and done it.....

Do you remember my impossibly long blog list?? Well.... I kept adding to it when I saw an interesting blog... thinking... at least I can always find it back!!

Not all the blogs had google reader attached however and it became a days task to click and follow them all.... so....

I resolved to organise the list! I found I could make more than one list and wanted to subdivide in a sailing list, a list of bee members, friends I made in the Old Red Barn group, designers, shops etc. Having a lot of little lists, would make it easier to manage....

I started with the sailing ones as a practice run, as there weren't that many of them. I succesfully opened a new sailing bloglist (thus labelled) and added the sailing blogs... Then I tried to remove one of them from the main blog list... I clicked 'remove' next to the name, saved and looked in the blog... mmmm.... still there.... So back to edit, clicked the remove button again and thought.. 'surely what I have done wrong is that you then have to hit the big blue remove button...'........ so I did........ and

I LOST MY ENTIRE BLOGLIST!!!!

Oooooooh........

Welll.... some of you are still in my google reader as I put you in both!! That is the good news... the bad news is that I have no other record or idea at all where the rest of you are!! Until I come across you of course.... I told you I was surprised I managed blogger so far... it couldn't last...... snif.....

So.... if I do not come by, say hello, or mail you at all.... can you PLEASE come by and say "HI !! I'm here in case you have lost me!!" It'll take me months and months to get back up to scratch...

On a positive note, I have started sewing again! This is a sneak peak for the DQS8 border...

I have also made a start on the Russian Doll. Marianne Penner rightly pointed out she might look better with a little hair... That was so true... But I had allready finished her and no space for hair... So now she has a little.. thingie..... headband sorta thing... softens the whole thing a little... Thanks Marianne... I will add hair on my next one! as I am sure to use the Russian Doll theme again. I am really enjoying doing it and the more I do, the more other ideas I get! ... next time (bit of a time shortage this time!).

So peeps... please drop in and spread the word! I need your help to get my list back!!

Thanks so much in advance..... <3

I do now Dee! Have fun at work!

Susan said...

My list is way out of control too, so I know the feeling, but I'm too lazy to do anything about it!

Loving those little blocks, Marg! I'm hoping your little quilt is heading my way. :)

Susan said...

I've been thinking about editing my blog list as well, but maybe I'll just leave it alone after reading about your experience! Yikes!

Catherine said...

Love the fabrics and colours you're using for the Doll Quilt Marguerite. As for your list you'll still have the ones you followed up on your Dashboard won't you or maybe not. Good luck with that!

Rafael's Mum said...

Yes, thanks Catherine, I have some of them on the dashboard, the ones I follow via google connect but I had a lot that are not on there...

Micki said...

Sue said...

Sarah said...

Oh so it's not just me who does dilly things on the computer?!! Never mind I'm sure you'll get much more done with all your spare time now. Love your patches too. Lovely pretty fabrics.

Karen said...

I've no blog so no worries here. Like you, I sometimes need a big OOPS button on the computer. Now, I'll share a secret. I haven't started my DQS8 quilt yet but I did buy fabric today. Shhhh.

Marianne said...

Marguerite, I thought your russian doll looked great. I'm glad you found a solution to softening her up a bit.

Love the fabrics you are using. I can't wait to see her!
