Isn't this pillow too cute? It is from Jan Patek and so great for Spring!
Something new; Jan Patek has a blog now!!! So go over and visit her and see what she is up to! Her store/website is here. I love it; I get an email when there are new patterns and other interesting things; you can sign up there for that as well as shop too.





I was reading a blog the other evening and noticed that the author was speaking to the slow loading of pages; she believes that it is due to the music many of us add. Well I have noticed that at peak times things may load slowly; I have satellite internet which is high speed; but mostly it is due to all the pretty things we have on our blogs; like the page designs and widgets and such. Pictures are another culprit. If you are having problems; I have a fix; put all your favorites in a reader; or feed; they only load the photos we put in, not the music and backgrounds and widgets etc. They are always updated when a new post comes in, so you know if you have read the latest. I like the Google reader myself; but I also have some in the Microsoft feeds too. It is easier to keep up with you all; time wise and if you want to comment you can easily click through to the actual blog and leave a comment. Just a little time saver and help for bloggie friends!!! Hope you check out Jan Patek site/blog; she has such neat primitive style patterns!

A Jan Patek design! I like most everything she puts out.
I, too, thought that the music on a blog was the culprit for slow downloading. I found out that my computer needed some upgrading and now the blogs load in a flash even with music and lots of photos. I enjoy the music while I am reading.
