Re: Cote Desir: Embellished Swing Coat

Thanks for your kind words. I should have mentioned that I'm a big fan of Jinny Beyer and her book "Color Confidence for Quilters". I used her method to create my palette of colors for the coat. I found it very useful, even with 48 different fabrics.

Re: SewStylish Fall Fashion Challenge Official Rules

Sorry -- cancel my last comment! I discovered that I could not upload a photo with accented characters in the title. My swing coat (Cote Desir) project is now uploaded. Many thanks.

Re: SewStylish Fall Fashion Challenge Official Rules

Hi Vicky, I'm having a lot of trouble uploading photos for the contest.

I have my 5 photos ready to go on my computer desktop. I have reduced the size of each to well below 4 mb, and reduced the pixels to maximum 1200 in one direction, but when the upload finishes on each photo, it says the link is broken, and no photo appears.

I'm very eager to enter my project. Is there some way you can help?

Many thanks.

Re: Stash Storage Storage Storage

Hi Michaela, I entered two totes two days ago (see my comment on July 27), and still don't see them here. Should I be worried yet?

Re: The Tote-ally Crafty Bag Challenge

Hi Michaela,
I see 25 member project galleries here, but am wondering where we can view all the entries in the tote challenge. (I entered in two different categories.)
