Hello all you FMQers!  Have you done your 30 minute practice today?  I haven't yet but I'm going to do it now.  

This is a test to see if we can make the switch from the FNMFMQers thread.

My practice today involved working on a quilted shawl.   I will post pics of the completed piece when I finish.   Since it is for me I have been using it to practice on.....LOL>

Hi Nana, I managed to post one of my first weeks practice pieces but had no luck posting a second.  Any ideas why?

Hi everyone,

Happy Valentines Day to my favorite people!  I just practiced some FM hearts and posted them and hope I did it right. I never thought I could FM a heart in my life. I am so excited I could scream. I think I can see light at the end of the FM tunnel.  Never did I think I could FM and make a design like a heart on my own.

Ok, I gotta go quilt this baby quilt. I may just FM some hearts on it. Yea Baby, we are all doing this. Isn't it exciting.

I have tried several times to post in media also and cannot -perhaps I am doing it wrong. Maybe we need instructions, isn't it like posted something here, with the little film box?

So...does this mean I have to go back and try to find DH's wonderful FMQ practice invention and re-post it? If so..Where??

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

CC YEP!  Whatever we want from the old thread needs to be put into Media here.  I put my three practices pieces but I took them from my personal pictures file.  

I'm wondering if we could "copy" and "paste"?  Hmmm  I'm going to give it a try.

Scream away Marlene, you have the perfect right to.  Did you post the hearts here?  Cause they are hiding somewhere if you did.

Marlene I'm going to email Liz because when I posted my three pics in Media I just kept trying different things until the pics appeared.  I've posted in other Media's but it was just one simple method not what I went through.

BTW anyone is welcome to get in touch with Liz personally through" Friends", that's what I did.  I'm going to write to her now and have her check this out.

Chris I tried this and when I got to "click on browse"  there was no click on browse.  I emailed Liz so hopefully she'll check this out.  The three pics I managed to upload was very different than uploading in other Media areas. Try it out yourself and see what I mean if you have the time.fm

I just went to the media section and went thru the process of uploading.  It worked just like Kris described.   You just have to remember to click specify file/url before you get a box to click browse.

It worked! It just takes longer to do than what we're used to. I posted my hearts FM. Thank you so much again! Wowie. That was cool.
