Pilfered From Tristan (Bargello Stole Photo).....and Blogger Dashboard.....

In all it's glory, on the young man for whom this stole was made, the combination of Tristan's amazing speed-sewing and my exceptionally obsessive piddling.........I could be no more thrilled seeing this! And I have to admit, there was divine intervention as the stole was delivered at 10:00 a.m. of the day the ordination took place at 3:00p.m. that afternoon! WHEW!!!
Now, for the Blogger Dashboard part? I don't know what is going on, but the post that this photo was in from Enchanted Revelry never showed up until, oh, yesterday or the day before.
I am finding more and more of people's blog posts show up hit and miss. Has something changed??? Is Blogger having issues? (please don't tell me it's my computer...I can't take anymore electrical hardware problems this week/month/year! Nooooooooooo.........)
I have a feeling there may have been posts made I wanted to read/respond to that I've not seen. And I am not sure how to try and figure this one out. If anyone has ever had this happen, let me know. If you think you have been ignored, please accept a general apology. I am not sure I am getting your updates!
I do run a semi-obselete version of I.E. and am thinking of switching to Google Chrome, but waiting to see what others think of it first; ease of use, learning curve, new browser issues, etc. I don't like change when I'm up to my ya-ya in things that need doing, and my mental capacity to learn and retain new system information at the moment is, well, compromised, shall we say??? (wink!)
At any rate, enjoy the photo for a comtemplative Sunday; there is a lot of joy in that smile and I am sure anticipation for a new purposeful life ahead.

Gorgeous stole! Isn't it funny how everything seems to happen just in the nick of time (as if this "happening" were actually passive)! Nice work.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Daniel!

Yes, it all fell into place in a most amazing manner.....and I am thankful it hade it to the owner in time!
I think there was some *help* in the timing of it all..... :)

BTW..good to see you this morning!

Hi Anne.
Happy to see your electrical issues must have ended.
The stole looks perfect!!! How beautiful it looks on him. Very happy that this picture came through so we could all see the fruits of your (and Tristan's) work. The young man certainly does look handsome in it and he looks like he couldn't be any happier. Yes, I would say God had a hand in this stole story, as well.
My poor family in VA has had SO much snow to deal with ever since I left and there is more in store on Tuesday. I may not get to go back home. AND, it has been cold and rainy here in SC. Waaaaaaa!!
Have a blessed Sunday!
♥ audrey

Linda Moran said...

The stole is gorgeous! I wish I could think of other superlatives for your work - fantastic, gorgeous, glorious - just doesn't seem like enough!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I haven't even read your entire post yet, but am too busy giggling over the play on words in your title. Pilfered/stole. Sorry, my warped sense of humour at work again!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Gypsy,

Yes, I still have electricity!!! YAY!
I love the pic, and thanks for pointing it out to me or I would never have even known about it due to the dashboard issues....go figure!
Going to try and accomplish something today....what...I don't know! LOL!!!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Audrey,

My cousin lives in Richmond and I heard from her---she said she's not even trying to go out. Under all their snow is a layer of ice, so she is extra careful.
Horrid storm.....something we usually get.
You take care!!!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Linda,

yes, I knew all those bribes would result in compliments....HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Most of that is Tristan.....I just put it together. He's the bargello whiz!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi MA---

OMG!!! I totally missed that!!! Well, that's what I get for trying to write in a hurry and when I'm tired....LOL!!!!
Yeah, that IS funny!
It's nice there are other warped minds out there. :)


Deborah said...

BeeeeeUtiful! And why does he look SOOO young?!?!? geesh. Must be getting old. I have google chrome and don't think I noticed any change. Happy Sunday, my friend. **kisskiss** Deb

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Deb,

I wondered the same thing.....and then it occured to me I am no longer a Spring Chicken! LOL!!!!
I may have to try Google Chrome and see what happens.....she says in fear!!!


Georgina said...

Wow, the stole is outrageously gorgeous!! I'm telling you, you and Tristan need to team up more're both great talents and obviously, great chemistry the 2 of you create.

Now, is this an alter boy or an ordained minister...they're getting younger and younger these days!! Nah, I'm just getting older and older!! As far as blogger, I wouldn't know if I'm getting all my comments since I read what I have listed, so dun't know!! Take care and watch that bod...btw, enjoying the snow??? hahahahaha...i sooo bad!!

Love ya,

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Georgina, I would KICK YOU if I was able....LOL!!!
No, we are all just getting OLDER! That's what sucks, and this DID remind me of the fact! LOL!!!
we really did not get snow here---it was enough to just sort of get things white, so nothing to mess with.
I'm working on the banners today....have already crawled on the table twice and under once.
Not good ideas, to say the least....


yoborobo said...

Hi Anne! Doesn't he look happy and proud? And damn young. lol! Ah, well, in spite of his youthful vigor, I wish him all the best. He has a life of purpose, and that is something to admire. :) You two did GOOD. :) Okay, back to shoveling...or not. LOL!! xox

Tangible Threads said...

You and Tristan did a magnificant job on this stole. Anyone would be proud to wear & display this piece. To the BOTH OF YOU.... congratulations and what an absolute honor!!

teri said...

This stole is marvelous... I have an understanding of the bargello pattern and your work looks flawless!

Thanks for following my faux rug project ... it was difficult getting up and down! If I do another ... there will be knee pads!!

Marilyn said...

Anne.... Saw this on Tristan's blog. I think the whole creation is amazing!! Beautiful work....
question??? What happened to Tammy's blog?? Email me if you like...

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Pam,

Yes, that smile makes all our work worth it! I remember a point in life I was that, wait, I'm hallucinating again! LOL!!
He looks like he will minister well.... :)
Lord help you with all that snow....I have SO been there. ACK.
Just be SAFE, whatever you do!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi TT!!

I am sure Tristane would be glowing with all the extra praise on the stole....I mean, his work was what MADE it!
I'm just glad I was pointed to the pic!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Teri,

That was exactly what I thought of while following the faux rug. I did a HUGE floor with a variety of stains in the house in Walton, squares on point with a small dark square off point (straight...this makes no sense!) where the points would meet. It was hell on my already busted up knees.
I think you did a lovely job---I am sure you could advertise for that work! (but buy kneepads!!!)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Marilyn,

Popped you off an e-mail...... :)
So glad I got this pic!!!
Just smiling like a proud mom, which I'm not, but still..... :)


Christine's Beadworks said...

Anne (and Tristen), it is amazing. He looks so happy and handsome. What a wonderful memory for him and his family. Great job!!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Christine!!!
I treasure pics of the stoles I make, or hangings....this was the first for an ordination!!!
(extremely big grin!)


Leslie said...

Great collaboration!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Oh yes Leslie...we both are WONDERFUL, and so humble about it too....


Jan said...

The stole is stunning and obviously much enjoyed by the young man. I'm glad I got to see this photo.
I think I am missing some dashboard posts too because I just checked on Audrey's blog and I didn't see her last two posts. I dunno, maybe there are so many that the occasional one slips past as I go clicking around.

Robbie said...

Anne, I saw the pic on Tristan's blog and thought it was WONDERFUL!!! Great job from both of you!

blogjem said...

Heavenly stole.
I got my beautiful card sin the mail.
WhenI opened the envelope my husband said: "they're very coffeebarchick" lol.
Thank you.
Can't wait ti scan them into the next Found While Bloghopping

marianne said...

i love the photo- what a smile! the stole is beautiful too- thanks so much for sharing-

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


I think it is some issue---I had a bout a week of the whole thing just jumping and jerking. Things were there, then not.
Bad hormone day for Blogger.... ;)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Robbie,

EVERYONE saw it there before I did, and I swear, I neve got that post he did!!!
(Blogger hates me.....sniff! blubber! LOL!!!!!)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Frances.....Glad the got there okay and you like them!
Thanks for the shout out with them---sent you a comment on your blog.


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi MArianne,

You knwo, everything else aside, the smile says it all. It made my smile everytime I saw the pic!


*Ulrike* said...

It is absolutely beautiful! The colors are fantastic, and the two of you did a wonderful job!
I, too, have noticed that the blogger dashboard has been doing some really, really, wierd things. So has facebook on some stuff, and I don't get on there that often. I guess I'll check into what Google chrome is all about....sometime...maybe I'll let you do it first! HA! I'm old, and beginning to understand this I do not like change bit!!!

Baldie said...

Hello Anne, Oooh I love the image of this young priest! How beautiful!!!

I had used Google Chrome for a while, it's okay but sometimes dragging the photos in Edit mode is hard. I still use IE but I also use Safari and Firefox for other devices.

I love Chrome.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Ulrike,

I am glad you commented; I have had exactly the same problems. I can't help but wonder if some of the apps are geared for Google Chrome, or other browsers over what I have.
I'll be on the dashboard and scroll posts and suddenly everything jumps and stuff is gone, other stuff has been a nightmare.
Gonna have to update my browser....UGH! I am too old to want to bother with it!!! WAH!!! ;)


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Ces,

That was what I was wondering about with Chrome---how it worked with the blog. That was why I went back to IE because I had Foxfire and had all sorts of blog issues.
I am such a Luddite....I am assuming you do your blog in HTML?
I just do the *compose*......I'm too lazy to sit and learn.
No, I just have other things I want to do!!! :)

XXOO to Baldie!!!! You are so funny!

Talk to me Dahling!
I'm waiting, breathless...... ;-D
