Revision to original photo gallery post

ElenaYDesigns | Posted in Photo Gallery on


Thanks for the comments. Several people have told me that my images are too large so I am trying something new, hopefully you will be able to view the images at a smaller scale.

    how about this ?

    I was able to only see the two in maddogs post. They are fabulous. I am on dialup and it would take 20 minutes for one of the pics in the first post to load up. I resize all of mine to 600x800 and they transmit pretty quickly.

    Dynamite bags!

      here they are a bit larger at 600 for the width
      the proportional settings picked the height. BTW I spend almost all my time at Breaktime, with infrequent ventures here and CooksTalk
      I don't knit, but my wife does. I just snoop over here to see what's new

        Maddog3:  We love your snooping and your help.  Your comments here made me laugh, which I always value. Thanks Scrubble4

          and I have dog biscuits and my second attempt at rye bread in the oven

            Care to share your recipe for the dog bisquits?  Hope the rye bread turned out well.

            I would be glad to share, the rye loaf still needs some work, the crust and taste (sour cream ) were what I wanted, but the loaf was not tall enough it seemed to settle after I took it out..hmmmany way, this recipe makes a fairly thick dough BISCUITS
            3 C all purpose flour2 C whole wheat flour (graham) 1 C rye flour2 C cracked wheat (bulgar) or rolled oats or wheat germ.....
            ............. mostly for looks in the finished biscuits1/2 C dry milk1 Tbsp coarse salt1 pint of whatever stock you want, chicken, beef, fish, veggie. or a can of any broth
            ............. warmed up............... if you use broth, omit the salt1 pkg. of dry yeast dissolved in a little warm water no hotter than 115ºmake a egg wash with one egg and some milk for basting the bicuits before they go in the ovenin a large bowl or mixer if you have one combine the dry ingredients, add the now dissolved yeast, and the stock or broth, and Mix together
            then Knead for about 3 minutes until the dough is stiffroll the dough until it is about 1/4' thick then cut with whatever shapes you have,
            ................( I use a glass since the dogs really don't care)..............use a lined cookie sheet and brush the biscuits with the egg wash just before you throw them in a 300º oven for about 45 minutes..turn the oven off and leave them in there overnight
            they will be very hard and shiny in the morning I make about 50 cookies, but the dogs are large, so if your companion is not a large breed you could end up with about 200 snacksif you like throw in whatever supplements the dog may be taking.
            or chopped livers
            or bacon drippings
            or butter
            sometimes I throw in alfalfa or parsley but it's Winter so they just got more eggs and a little honey this timelet me know how it turns out

            Thanks for the recipe!  Those dogs are lucky to have such yummie treats.  Will let you know when I try it out/ Mary

    Ellanatstitchart:  What do you have inside the purses?  Is it one big compartment, are there slip pockets for cell phones etc.?  Once you get the sizing of the pictures sorted out, could you do some pictures of the insides?  They are just fabulous.  Thanks again for posting, and bring on your other stuff that you mentioned in your first post.  We all get excited seeing such exquisite sewing.  Scrubble4

      HiMy purses are all interfaced usually with fusible fleece (see my "Gatherings" Post about this) lined with bengaline or whatever I have on hand that looks good for a lining and usually have only one inside pocket. I have tried multiple pockets to accomodate cell phones, ets. but they are time consuming and are not usually worth the time for the price that I can get for my bags. I most always use magnetic snaps for closures, either inside the purse or on the outside tab and outside front of the purse. Sometimes I just use a button and tab closure.
      I'm still working on reducing the size of my images. I think I have figured it out but will wait a while before sending any more pics to the Photo Gallery.
