Frustrated Again

If anyone knows why my posted images will (only sometimes) refuse to enlarge, I would appreciate a hint! My original images are definitely not too large, the titles aren't too long, and there are no spaces in the titles. At one time I thought I had this figured out, but obviously not. Can anybody out there help? I have a "help" email posted to Blogger, but don't know when or if they will ever get back to me. I'd really appreciate any advice or suggestions! Thanks ...

Hands Across the Water

I've been corresponding a bit lately with a lovely fiber artist in Denmark named Inge Reinholdt, http://www.123hjemmeside.dk/ingesol. She surprised me with a wonderful gift of her artwork that I had admired, "Blomster":

and I was so excited that I had to make a special piece for her, "Texas 2-Step":

As it turned out, both pieces ended up being about the same size, but that was just coincidence ... they're both about 14" x 16".

Thank you, Inge, for being my artistic pen-pal, and for having such a generous nature. I hope that my lizards will remind you of your Texas friend whenever you see them.

Gloria's metal thing

At one of our art play-days, Gloria made this little metal "thing" ... could be a pendant or a brooch or an embellishment for an altered book? When Gloria "gets ahold" of an idea, it doesn't take her any time at all to make it her own.
