"There are two types of "Bed of Roses."

Hello,

Did you know there are two types of "Bed of Roses." First there is this pink variety...
"Radio Times."
Some blooms of the rose Radio Times.

Then there is the other variety...


The crocheted variety. Last week I finished the doily I was working on. It was called "Bed of Roses."


There was lots of counting  of stitches in this one. Good to have a finish for OPAM. (One Project a Month.)
Speaking of OPAM I received my envelope of goodies from my win the previous month. A beautiful pink piece of fabric, DMC thread and a pattern for a Heart Scissor Keep.

Blogging Issues.
Over the weekend I had issues with blogging into my Blogger account. I was able to sign in, though the sign in part where you write your email address etc was out of alignment. I wasn't able to see the dashboard etc. The pages I went to were blank. I then tried typing in my blog name in a new tab and the web page opened up. I was unable to go to a "New Post" or "Design" these pages also were blank. After doing all the things that the google/blogger page suggested I did take a deep breath and write to them as they suggested. I got a reply and tried the suggestion but it didn't work. I then left it overnight tried again, no success. Then I bit the bullet and changed from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome. Wacko I was able to sign in. I have been using the new blogger interface for quite a while, this apparently doesn't work to well with Internet Explorer. So in the end I solved my own problem!!!! Using the Google Chrome while loading this post I have noticed that the photo's load up so much quicker. So if you are having trouble which no doubt some people will I hope you remember this post. It was only after reading on other blogs that people had trouble and they changed to Chrome and the problems went away. Apparently from what I can gather Google/Blogger knew this would happen.




On Monday morning in Italy a  fairy princess was born to my Nephew Ryan and his wife Edy.
Congratulations on the arrival of Faye Sara. Faye decided she wanted Edy to have a bit of a extended pregnancy and was a fortnight overdue. The day Edy was supposed to be induced Faye decided to make her presence in this world on her own accord. Best wishes from your family here at Kainga and happy parenting
.
Happy days.

Love your pink beds of roses. I was having similar (not quite the same) blogger problems last week and in the end switched back to the old interface which solved the problem. I'd just got used to the new interface too. So might try it again using Google Chrome. Thanks for the tip.
So nice to see the great aunts excited about the new arrival.

Your pink roses are beautiful, my roses are a bit dormant at tHe moment. Your crotcheting is so pretty, love the shade of pink you've used too. Always exciting to welcome a new baby to the family.

I hope Edy enjoyed reading while waiting ;o)
Lovely crochet work and oh those roses. I think I must come your way one day, to see your flower garden.

beautiful roses - both kinds! I love how soft and luxurious your crochet project looks. Happy to hear a good recommendation for Google Chrome. I still haven't tried it.

Lovey roses and you did such a beautiful job on the crocheted doily! My son has always said that Google chrome is much better. Congratulations on your new great niece!

Nicky said...

Gorgeous roses and crochet Bev, you've been a busy girl as always. I've been using Chrome for a while now, and have had no issues since changing. Congrats on being a great-aunt, what a wonderful reason for a trip to Italy!!

Narelle said...

Your crochet 'Bed of Roses' is just as sweet as the outdoor type :)
Congratulations to the new mum and dad!
