Dear John Blogger

Dear Blogger,
I'm not sure I know what what happened, I don't understand why you no longer love me? Was it something I said? Why won't you allow me to upload my pictures any longer. When did it all go so wrong?
Many are the long nights that we have been up late, way into wee hours of the night, trying to resolve the issues that are standing between us. Still, I'm afraid no progress has been made. I'm not sure that this relationship can be saved.
It has been working so well between us before, so why isn't it working now? Exactly what does it mean when you say that: permission is denied? My permission? or Your permission? Why? What changed? and What can I do to make it work?
I've tried to change. I've reset the settings for security and privacy for you. I even switched to Beta for you and still nothing. Nothing I do is enough for you.
Fine, I'm not very good at letting go of things like this, but I'm not going to allow this thing between us to hold me back any longer. ( I have been threatened bodily harm by Lisa)
I don't need you. I never needed you. If the truth be told, ours was really only a relationship of convenience anyway. I have Flicker. Flicker still loves me. Flicker puts out for me. Flicker has never failed to perform. It didn't have to be this way, but unless you're at least willing to meet me half way I'm afraid that this is how it has to be.
Love Cordially, Kelle

Amazing Lace Challenge #6 - A most Unlikely Model

Once upon a time there was a lovely princess named Forest Path Stole.
But Forest Path had an enchantment upon her of a fearful sort, put upon her by a magnificent "knitting wizardess", which could only be broken by love's final stitch.

She was locked away in a castle guarded by a terrible blue, book-reading dragon.

Many brave knights knitters had attempted to free her from this dreadful prison, but none prevailed (sadly).


Forest Path waits in the dragon's keep, in the highest room of the tallest tower for her true love and her true love's final stitch.

Oh yeah, likes that ever gonna happen!

Where's Waldo?

Oh, who cares? Waldo? Waldo Smaldo? Never mind the silly little dude in the silly little hat, more importantly, what I want to know is where in the @#$%^&* blue blazes are the builders who are supposedly *working* on stucco-ing our basement walls are?!
Want to know how long it takes to have your basement walls stucco-ed?
The answer is a month of Mondays. First they will tell you they are coming on Monday but not come. Then they will call and tell you that they won't be able to start until next Monday and then not show up again. But they will call you on the following Wednesday to say they won't be able to start until, you guessed it, next Monday only to then show up the next day to work for two days pounding metal mess onto your basement walls, dismantle your washer and dryer and then leave for the *weekend* which turns into a week and a weekend. They will then show up again at 6:50 AM on the hottest #$%@ day of the summer to make with the pounding again, but at least it actually was a Monday this time. After which they will disappear for another week.... and well you get the idea.
Anyway the Amazing Lace Challenge #5 is Where's Waldo? and it occurred to me that my partner Forest Path Stole does a fair impression of steel mesh and seeing my basement is covered in steel mesh.....and as a bit of diversion... well, you get the idea.

Where's Forest Path?

Hobbes is also wondering how long before his sanctuary is returned to him, free of strange men pounding on the walls.

On a separate note, my partner feels that the last few challanges hasn't fairly presented her at her best and to boost her morale would like a chance for you all to see her in a better light.
