Oops, it doesn't appear to have worked. What else am I supposed to do, apart from inserting the Url?

I am still working on that phone cover. I wish I had more time to knit.

I tried imgbb, but put nigilli@aol.co.uk instead of nigilli@aim.com and the activation email didn't come, although there was a message saying that it had been sent. I tried starting over again, but just got the same message saying that an activation email had been sent. Will wait a couple of days, then try again.

I finished the phone cover and am now working on a small doll's dress for the charity shop and a tea cosy, the pattern for which is from a very old and tattered pattern booklet from my childhood.

Well, I managed to get an account on imgbb, so let's see what happens.

Image

Found a dishcloth I'd started and had forgotten about, so am continuing with that and also working on a doll's jumper for a small doll, based on another doll's jumper pattern, which was based on the fish-and-chip baby jumper pattern. Also the tea cosy pattern from my ancient book of patterns from my childhood.

okay I am going to stop shopping and start finishing. I have 2 quilting projects/ 4 dresses/ 2 sweaters and 3 blankets on the go. One blanket will take the year to complete so it doesn't count. I am just a month and a half behind on it! I will pick one thing (love rolling the dice) and finish it then move on to the next. Wish me luck.

Week July 1 - 7
9. - blanket #1

TO FINISH
1. quilt #1
2. quilt #2
3. dress #1
4. dress #2
5. dress #3
6. dress #4
7. sweater #1
8. sweter #2
9. blanket #1
10. blanket #2

I finished the quilt! The colors came out darker than they are. The dark square is actually a pretty dark blue. The maroon actually has gold & violins on it.

Well done, MCL! It's annoying when the photo doesn't show the finished article in its true colours, but no doubt it is beautiful.

I tried with IMGBB to post an image, but failed. I thought I'd tried with Upload, but don't see the result - maybe I just signed up for an account.

Still knitting the tea cosy and the doll's dress plus about 3 dish cloths.

Gilli, I don't know anything about posting personal photos, but I do post a lot of images.... maybe this will help.

When I am on the page with the picture I want to post, I hover the mouse pointer over the picture, and then right click the mouse. Then a menu pops up and I click on Copy Image Location.

Then, on the posting page at the forum I click on the Image button and then make sure the mouse cursor is in between the 2 middle bracets.

Then I go to the menu at the top of the computer and click on Paste, and a string of letters and numbers suddenly appears.

Usually, before I submit the post, I use the Preview button (underneath the area to type the post) to verify the picture is showing in the post, and then I scroll down and push the submit button.

Hope this helps, and thank you for all your efforts to post pictures of your projects! :D
