Day 6 - Wake Up to Kona Blog Hop



Welcome!


Huge thank you to  Carol and Madame Samm, for all their work behind the scenes that make these hops possible.  Brilliantly done, ladies!


I hope you're enjoying this inspiring and Kona colourful blog hop.
 Isn't it amazing what you can make using Kona? 

I have been looking forward to showing what I made...
but I can't.

Blue Beginnings Quilt - made with Kona fabrics - click here for details.
 Sadly, due to unforeseen technical issues (Blogger is acting up and not allowing me to upload any of my photos), I can't show you the project I made to share today. I will continue to try and hopefully, I will be able to post what I made. Until then, I decided I would share a picture of the one and only quilt in solids I have made  (shown above... for some reason Blogger is allowing me to copy and paste, but not upload new photos... sigh...) .

 My sincerest apologies to you for being a disappointing way to start Day 6 of the hop.   

*Edited*  Still unable to load the photos, our kind cheerleader, Carol has offered me the chance to be added to a different day on the hop (assuming that at some point before the hop ends on the 21st, that I will be able to post with photos... fingers are now tightly crossed that Blogger will soon grant me that wish...).
Thanks to each of you for your wonderful support and sympathy over my disappointing day.  I do believe a giveaway will be in order... once I'm back to normal function on this blog! Stay tuned. ;o)


Please join me in visiting all the other participants I share today with...

  18. Sorry about your issues! Did you try and load your pictures under the HTML tab? I've found that when I can't load them on the regular tab, the HTML tab works OK. Frustrating, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Grrr.... blogger.... grrr!!!! I have that problem with blogger occasionally and I just thought it was me. I have found if I change my browser from one to another (i.e. internet explorer to google chrome) it will usually work. I'll check back!

  25. I have been fighting blogger with the same issues. I have cleared my cookies, lost my cookies and am about done with cookies, and still nothing! LOL! I finally downloaded Firefox to get photos posted! 3 platforms to post a photo or two seems like overload to me!
