You don't need to post pics for this. Just email them to Helen. She'll post them without names so we can vote on them. Sorry for the computer problems.

I can't get them to load on anything at the moment and I'll not pay out the big bucks its gonna cost just to do this.  Wrong!  I can load onto FB but its the only place.  Its OK TxMary, I don't mind opting out this time.  I'll just watch from the side lines and vote.  Maybe next time.  By then maybe we'll have the problem fixed...... Knuppel    I'm just not computer savvy enough to know how to do it myself.





lmao  Well, yes, a sledge hammer would do the trick!   lmao

Memaw, you could save the pic to your computer from facebook then post from there. Of course, you have to remember what you name it and where you put it!

Or perhaps Jill could save the pic from your facebook or one of your family members and email it to me so you can be part of the competition.

Is anyone taking part in this competition? I have only received one photographed block so far, never would have believed it was this hard to give away a prize, a freebie!

Enter as many times as you like, there is no entry limit, hope you get better and can enter, remember, if its something fused you could just fuse it and not have it stitched down, doesnt have to be finished, would be ok

I got my block cut out and a bit sewn before I discovered that one piece was the wrong size, so I stopped to check what the size should be.

I'm with Memaw, I'm so nosy...
Helen, I just can't get it together, I won't be emailing you a picture, I'll run out of time before I have time to do it. Just too much going on and I am working a lot the next two weeks. If it was any other season, I'd have the time. Thanks for offering up the challenge though, I am excited to see the winning block and I appreciate you running a competition for us. placard placard

Wow, can't wait to see all of the blocks. I just found this thread, but can't participate at the moment anyway. But I can vote! Yippee! Bring on the blocks. Fall is my favorite time of the year!

Sorry I couldn't post earlier-computer issues. Really not that interesting but here goes:
We have been receiving multiple calls a day from a local cell phone. No one is on the other end. Usually I just ignore, but I started teaching a new class and have some new ladies in it. I didn't want to miss one of their calls so answered. Yesterday I received 6 calls in an hour and 15 minutes. So I called the Sherrif's office. Spoke with a deputy who called the number and got a young woman who had just gotten off work. He really thinks it's not her. So another hour goes past and I receive the call again. This time someone is on the line and starts in a pitch for "the person responsible for decisions about your energy bills". I told him I know who he is, the SO has been called and A deputy has his info and he is using a bogus cell number and TO GET THE HELL OFF MY PHONE! Calls ended.

The ceiling light fell off it's bracket in the dining room. There were trees/wires down on my road. I am having computer issues with desktop and tablet. Some family issues. Sigh. I still need to get a bit done on my block but not sure it's going to happen. I may have to take a pic the way it is.

Excuses, excuses! Thud

Oh Sewn, so sorry to hear about all that. It can sure be annoying, I was getting a text message meant for someone else over and over, it finally stopped. It seems like when it rains it pours. Hope tomorrow is a better day!

I think I may be able to finish the one I am on. The one I really like best won't be completed at entered at this time. I ran into a snag so I moved on.
