I'm still trudging onwards with the web page relocation project. Boy, it's just a whole lotta grunt work. Original pages (written way back in the Dark Age)s had imbedded Java Scripts and pop-up windows for the pictures. Further down the line, when I had more knowledge at my fingertips, I put in some CSS coding to simplify some aspects of maintenance. But I didn't update the Dark Ages pages. :-) Now, thanks to my geeky Dear Daughter, I have server-side includes to further simplify maintenance. :-)
At this point, when I am doing the relocation, I am updating Every Single Page to remove the imbedded Java Script and the pop-up windows, include the CSS and SSI code snippets and make sure that external and internal links still work correctly. Boy, am I stylin' now! :-)
But, as I said, it's all grunt work. My goal is to get everything moved to the new site by the end of the month. Then I can make the Formal Announcement. :-) [however, most of the pages are already moved over and working fine, I think. References to the relocated pages are already in place. I hope to see less traffic at the old sites and more traffic at the new site ... as I look at the statistics. All of this should be transparent to the user. So they say. :-) ]
I've been working on my current Forever Project, which I am calling Vertical Diamonds. As of right now, at 72" x 84", it's officially longer than my display space.
Now that I can see the entire thing hanging, I also see some layout issues but they are going to stay exactly as they are. It's one thing to rip out machine stitching but everything here is *hand stitched* I am absolutely, positively NOT going to remove that stitching to fix any perceived problems.
Rather, I am going to maintain that any layout issues are simply part of the charm of the quilt. :-)
This quilt isn't finished being pieced yet. There is another round of small diamonds, a narrow brown border, a slightly wider blue border and a final narrow brown border. If all goes according to my calculations (HA!), it should finish around 86" x 113".
Next up for Vertical Diamonds ... working on the round of small diamonds. Lots of them. More than lots. Tons of them. And that's why it's called a "Forever Project". :-)
