Blogging Frustration!

Is it my computer, my internet server or blogger?
It can take what seems like ages to open a post from the blogs I follow and another eternity to try and leave a message.  Since I do not have much patience, I have not kept up with reading and commenting.  I have tried, believe me! So please forgive me for not leaving a comment.  I know their importance and will keep trying. 
In the meantime, I have been busy.
Finished piecing Paris in the Fall by This and That, a BOM available at TOWQS.
A small group of gals all worked together to each make one and we had a little party Thursday to celebrate its completion, but that is a story best kept to myself. LOL! 
Who knew almond flavored champagne was so tasty!
I did manage to complete 1 more CW block, but I am still 2 behind. 

I am anxious to make a red and white quilt!  I have loved seeing all the pictures and reading the articles about the show in NYC.  Wish I could have seen it in person!


  1. Cheryl, your Paris in Fall quilt is very beautiful.
    But also the CW block is nice. I have only made the two first blocks and am not sure, whether I will make more.
    Have a nice week.

  2. I absolutely love your quilt - the colors, fabrics, just yummy! That CW block isn't bad either! Love it!

  3. I, too, have enjoyed the photos and articles written about the Folk Art Museum's textile exhibition in NYC, I've had the photo of
    A Vortex Quilt on my desk for a week. Just fascinated by it. Sadly, the maker is unidentified.

  4. Oh Cheryl I love your quilt ! Maison Garance right ? One of my favorite fabrics ! I enjoy watching your progress of the CW blocks.

  5. Beautiful quilt! I am having the same problems with blogger- some new posts seem to appear on Blogger but if I open the blog the post is missing...very frustrating. Many blogs are missing the pictures, too. I am giving up...and may have to resort to doing some house cleaning....Yikes!

  6. Oh-my-gosh- Cheryl, this is a beautiful quilt. Love everthing about it!

    I have a friend who is in NYC this week injoying the exhibit and loving every quilt she sees!

    I haven't experience any problems as you are having with Blogger---hope it improves for you. Do you have a problem with mine? I am not with yours when I visit you.

    Hope you are having a great weekend!

    Almond flavored Champagne, huh??? :)

  8. Your quilt is stunning!! I love it! I have trouble with blogger on and off but it doesn't seem to affect all of the blogs I read, just some of them. A lot of times if I just start over again, all seems to be right with cyberworld. Hope your troubles are fixed soon.

  9. Cheryl - Your Paris in Fall quilt looks so beautiful!
    OK - Almond flavored Champagne??? PLEASE share the brand/details with me!!
    I like your London Square block for the CW Quilt too!

  10. It's a beautiful quilt! Yes, sometimes opening and commenting can take forever! Have you seen the online red and white quilt show at Repro Quilt Lover? I plan on posting and entering a quilt later today! It's fun to see them online :-)

  11. your problem I think is actually a blogger problem, sometimes I come on here and it tells me I have no blogs I am following.........hello I am following over 300 I have to come back later sometimes the next day. I feel your frustration.

  12. I like the quilt you are working on. Colors are good and the setting interesting.

  13. I love Paris in the summer, autumn, winter and spring and i love your Paris in the fall. Very Cheryl colours, including the CW block too.
    Almond flavoured champagne eh? Please tell us more!

  14. Love your quilt - especially the border fabric. Sounds like a fun party!

  15. Your Paris in the Fall quilt is sensational!!!
    I'm really enjoying the BOW's, and I agree I would also love to make a red & white quilt, I've seen pictures of the exhibits and they are just wonderful!!!

  16. What a beauty! Each block is a jewel. I can't believe how speedy you are.

  17. Wow Cheryl..Your Paris in the Fall quilt is the sashings..I love it all!!!
    Julia ♥

  18. Your PITF quilt is stunning!
    I want to make a red and white quilt too - the exhibit looks amazing.♥

  19. it!!! LIke it lots!!!

  20. I am so behind in my CW blocks, it is pitiful! I love yours! Also your quilt is fabulous!

  21. I find blogger quirky sometimes, too. The problem I usually have is it doesn't update the posts in my blog roll. Technology, can't live with it, can't... you know the saying. Keep quilting and posting so we keep enjoying your work!


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Love any comments you wish to share.
