Problems & a new to me blog........

Victoria's is strongly in my mind...........terrible losses there............words cannot describe the disaster there.............

I was chatting to Peg yesterday and she has discovered her blog is not being updated in bloglines............since about the end of December her blog posts have not appeared in bloglines...............not sure who else I have missed out on by this problem..............if anyone knows how to fix it leave a comment here or go to Peg's blog and leave a comment there.........obviously Peg can do a blog posts about this as it is not showing up in bloglines for you to read..........

On a more positive note...........

The new blog I found today is Quiltsalott........I will have to go back and look thru more posts but looks good...........check it out..........

Oh and if anyone wants to do Lurlines Happy House Swap there is still time to get your name in.........even Fairy Girl can make them so you can too...........go try one out they are pretty quick to make up........

and sorry there are no pics but go check out Snappy Friends............and get your fix there...........

.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........


  1. Checked the new quilting blog with the AMAZING block. Too sad about the fires. Feel happy that I live in the middle of suburbia.

  2. Yes, I think we all are a bit under the shadow of a big cloud - let's stay positive and look forward to comforting the victims with quilts - that day will come very soon, I'm sure!
    My House Swap is going well - I'll do a little Post on that soon - would love to see pics of the blocks!
    Thanks and hugs, Chooky - Lurline♥

  3. Saying prayers for you guys today. I read today online that the officials think it was set on purpose. I just cannot wrap my brain around that.
    Stay safe,

  4. I remembered that this blog is an Aussie blog and thought I would just tell you that it's on the top of the news here in Canada, all the fires and destruction. Terrible. Hope all your family is safe. My son lived in Melbourne for 2 years, loved Australia and it's peoples.
    A lovely blog you have here.

  5. Peg's blog is the only one I've found so far in my list that doesn't update. It took me a few weeks to realise. Quilt Club Narromine was being updated and I realised that I hadn't read anything from Peg. My simple fix is that when Quilt Club is updated then I always go and check Pegs as well as she seems to post at a similar time. I should go through my list and see if any others have the same problem. But I am sorry I don't have a proper fix - if you work it out then post about it so we know. Hugs.

  6. We have family down in Oz. Our nephew is volunteering in the efforts to combat the fires. Prayers for your countrymen and women that the fires and flooding stop.

  7. Donna I'm near you and near all Australian people in this bad moment.
    ciao ciao

  8. I can hardly believe what I'm seeing on TV..
    My heart goes out to those dear families that have lost loved one.
    It's hard to think of anything else right now...Lets pray it's all over soon..
    Julia ♥

  9. Hi Chooky - Peg's blog updates in my bloglines - have no idea why or if I've managed to have a different setting somewhere.

  10. Peg's blog doesn't update any more in Bloglines for me either. I have unsubscribed and re-subscribed but it hasn't made any difference. I just go in their manually, but of course I am worried that I will miss out on some of her beautiful work LOL

  11. Thanks for the link chooky.
    Are you in a safe place? Dry and not burning? Stay safe.

  12. The VIC fires sure are horrific and to think that someone might of actually light some of them on purpose, discusting...

    Take Care
    Jodie :)

  13. Yes Im down for the Funky Houses too!! They look very to make some, what fabric are you using?? Cathy

  14. Funny I should read this blog today, because I manually went to your blog, because yours isn't updating in bloglines for ME! And I missed you. I have a few others that don't update. And a few others, still, that only update randomly. Curious thing.


Thanks for visiting......I appreciate you taking time to leave a comment.....Chookyblue.....
