I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 25. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, three Essex , one Singer 20. one Singer 40 and a Vulcan Countess. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

What is happening with Picasa????????     I've just been going back through some of my blog posts and there are pictures missing everywhere!!!     I have not changed one thing on my Picasa album and yet the photos I have installed on the posts that have come from Picasa are the ones suddenly not there!!   Looks like I will go back to putting photos up only from my computer...  hmmmmmmmm

So, let me know if you spot the blank photo boxes and I'll go back and try and remember what I had in there to start with!!  I'm working on a few now,


Hope your Easter Break is going well,



  1. When I add from my computer it goes into Picassa anyway. I don't know the difference between going computer Picassa blog or computer blog Picassa if you get what I mean . Most of my photos come from Flickr as a copied URL . Ae you sure you haven't moved photos or deleted photos in Picassa ? I just hope it doesn't happen to me. Sorry I can't be more help.

  2. I noticed that!! Hope you figure it out!! Have a Happy Easter, first, though!

  3. Oh I haven't checked mine, but know it isn't the most stable. They may well reappear xxxx

  4. When you post onto your blog from Picassa they seem to go to a picassa web page.... I went and deleted from that and they went off my blog... but I don't know why they should suddenly go...may be a glitch in the system...

  5. Oh no!!! I have heard of that with others too. It had something to do with changing settings or something. Good luck.
