6 - End of the Year Countdown

Ooh I'm so excited!  I'm putting together a quilt design for A Needle Pulling Thread magazine, working on Mandy's Magical Tree, and testing out some hand embroidery stitches.  Fun!  I love learning new things.  The EQ5 book are SUPER easy to figure out by the way.  I'm enjoying putting ideas together and swapping out colors with the click of a button.

I'm really NOT computer savvy, so the books are very helpful.  Speaking of which, I have a confession.  I'm doing the blog countdown like this because blogger isn't allowing me to add more pictures!!  I've maxed it out.  What do I do!?  Some blog photos I've clicked on at other sites link to flickr.  I cannot figure that out.  Any bloggers out there hit the wall and rectified this situation?  In the mean time, enjoy this post...


  here we go... 
SIX!

HI Monika, Re. the photo situation: I don't know how to do the Flickr thing, but it is useful to cut down the file size of the photo before you upload it. So,for instance, instead of uploading a photo that is 2.1MB, reduce it's size to 100KB. it doesn't really change the appearance of the photo on the computer screen, but you would be able to upload a lot more photos. I can't seem to find the info about how much space I have left to post. However, I imagine that they probably provide you extra space for a fee. Michelle

Thanks Michelle. Yeah - my photos are all set VERY big - like 4MB+, for when I'm out there photographing prairie. Resizing after the fact is so much work. I think I'm going to be a more responsible camera operator and take the smallest photos possible when in my sewing room. I already reset it for brightness before I take the pics. Then when I go out, I'll reset the camera. Snapping away and then fixing things on the computer is the long way around - I need to change my ways! : )
And yes - picasa wants money. I'm not doing it. I've already paid for flickr.
