Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

The Inevitable!

Exactly that!!!

I am smiling :-)

I really did not want to try New Blogger out at all especially after all the problems I have had recently with Blogger but my old Aunty May used to say best git ee over and dun wit.....,down to earth but wise old lady was my Aunty May! 
Well I did and initially all was well. I wrote up my last post "The Real Thing"while testing New Blogger. I had a few snags situating the photos on the post as they kept skidding back to where New Blogger wanted to put those images! I finally got that sorted and finished my post. I published it and it uploaded to my blog window. As I always do I logged out of the blog and checked if I could see my post online!! Yep...all fine there.....!!
 I then noticed  no thumbnail image appeared on my blog roll to indicate I had a new post . I checked the Reading list and no post appeared there either just the previous post. There you have it I had a new post that the blogworld could see on my blog but the blog roll image and the update on the reading list was missing completely.  After waiting to see if it they would appear from the depths of bloggerland on their own by logging out and logging in to blogger again but did not happen ! I therefore tried this that and the other to try and activate those two missing elements!  Consequently I got really fed up and reverted back to old Blogger and the missing thumbnail image appeared in seconds as it should do on my blog roll and the post appeared also likewise on my reading list!!

So much for the first try with New Blogger !!     I am hoping this is something that may have happened to other bloggers out there and if so I really want to hear how you solved it..please!!
I have read somewhere that old Blogger will change to New Blogger at the end of August for everyone!!  I hope they will have sorted this glitch by then!!


Another lockdown make which I finished at the end of April and displayed from my balcony window.


bit of a gloomy cloudy day..tch!

 have a great week!

Take care now!

  1. Hi Amanda! I think I used the new Blogger for my last post but I do not have the same blog roll format you have so I can not help you sort that out. Sorry! Thanks for letting us see your pretty suncatcher. I hope you have a wonderful week.

  2. My last comment didn't go through.. will this one?

  3. It worked.. love the suncatcher and I'm sticking with the old blogger.. the new one has too many things to click through. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. I've tried the new one and reverted back. I guess at some time it will change without the option of reverting back but until then, it's the old version for me!

  5. I really like your suncatchers. I think I'm still using the old blogger. I have no wish to change unless they "make" me.

  6. Hello dear Amanda!
    Like your Suncatcher! What a fabulous creation!Lovely colors too!
    I’m using the old blogger but this video will be very useful for you!
    Have a happy week! Stay safe! xxxx

  7. Tried the new one and then reverted back to the old one. A beautiful suncatcher, love the colours.

  8. Your suncatcher is totally gorgeous.

  9. How beautiful! And yes, I dread going to the new format!

  10. Your sun catchers are so beautiful. I love that you have a blog roll, I still do and I think it is a great way to see new blogs. So many people just have minimalist blogs right now, they are a bit too professional looking for my taste. Stay safe.


Thank you for your comments. I do read them and try to reply to all as well.Please keep them coming. Amanda :-)
