A Spring Exchange

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends your kind comments about yesterday post were just wonderful - and I thank you so much!!!! I posted the recipe for Cherry Coffee Cake over at Blacksheep Bakes - you can click HERE to go there.

I had a quick question about Blogger that someone may be able to answer for me.  I am unable to update my Blog list - I can neither add nor subtract Blogs from the list anymore.  I was wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem or am I doing something completely dumb and stupid....  any help would be appreciated - I have searched in Blogger for help but can find no answer.  Which probably means I am not looking in the right place!!  :)

Yesterday the mail brought a wonderful package from my Secret Partner in the Spring Exchange over at Friends Stitching Through the Seasons - my Partner is Karen from over at Stitching and Sharing.  I am really happy about joining this small group of stitchers!!  Here are some snaps..


 The Exchange package that Karen sent included two pieces of lovely finishing fabric and great piece of 36ct linen - opalescent (I choose this particular snap because you can see the sparkles in the linen)  I have never stitched on sparkly linen and already have some ideas about this lovely piece!!  There was also hank of my favorite silk, Belle Soie, in a limited edition colour, and a corner gauge ..... and some Black jelly beans!!  


The Stitched piece is a wonderfully stitched and finished pillow, the design is from the Quaker Year Series from Homespun Elegance - Spring!!  Stitched in a great variegated floss.  Karen even include my initials!!  This was a wonderful exchange Experience and I can't wait for Summer......

That's about it for today sports fans.  Let me leave off today with this little snapperoo...

...  Mr Rabbit now has those delicious Black Jelly beans to contend with!!!

Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!

Take care,
edgar

I have not been able to "manage" my blogger list, although I can still add blogs to it by following them, but I cannot remove blogs. I posted about this on the blogger help site but have had no responses to the dilemma. Hopefully someone out there is more knowledgeable and will let you know.

Wait...the Reese's Pieces disappeared already?

Love your exchange gift. I have not been able to add or remove blogs from my Blog List for over a month now. You are not alone and I discovered many bloggers are having the same issue when I looked in Blogger's Help Forum. If the problem is being addressed there doesn't seem to be a solution.

Lovely exchange! Are you having problems managing the blog list from the "design" page? You should be able to add and subtract from there but I think you are only allowed 300? I'm not entirely sure on that one.

What a great exchange, both sent and received. I have to admit my goofy sense of humor may get me in a little trouble here, but is anyone else giggling at Mr. Rabbit sitting in the black jelly beans??!

Anne said...

What a lovely exchange Edgar!! As for the blog roll, it hasn't been working for me either!! I tried to update it awhile back and got the same problem. Now I use google reader to catch up on my blog reading. There's nothing that works to fix the blog roll unfortunately, so it's not you!

Krista said...

What a lovely exchange you got, lots of goodies! I am unable to delete blogs from my list (at least I can't figure out how to!) but I can add, with the Add Blog button and using URLs. Some of this is still foreign to me :) Have a great day!

That's a wonderful exchange package you received : )

Margaret said...

Lovely exchange! The problem I've been having is that when I follow a blog, it doesn't show up on my google reader anymore. Maybe it's the same problem manifesting itself in a different way. Frustrating.

Such a nice exchange to receive! Having that cute bunny dish is so handy when one receives a tasty treat!

Daffycat said...

BTW I had so much trouble with my blog list I deleted it and went to standard link lists. Not as nice but not FULL of bugs and glitches either.

Veronica said...

Such a lovely exchange. The pillow Karen made is beautiful. Love your cute bunny bowl :)

Hugs,
Veronica.

You might try Googling your blog problem. Often doing that, instead of relying on Blogger help, will get you to a solution.
