A blog win and a plea for "Follower" help

What a great way to brighten up a dreary day.  Yesterday these fun things arrived in the mail thanks to a generous giveaway from Kelly at Pinkadots Quilts.  I have a link to her blog on my sidebar so you can go check out the fun things she is working on.  I love her fun use of bright fabrics.  Thanks Kelly, I can't wait to figure out what to do with the Christmas charm packs and the little pumpkin will now go up on the wall in my kitchen!
 On a totally different note, I have been having trouble with my "Followers"  on my sidebar.  Sometimes they are there sometimes not.  Yesterday I spent some time searching Google and blogger for a solution and thought that I had it all figured out but then today I went in and they were gone again.  I am usually able to retrieve them by clearing history and I think perhaps yesterday's fix (which I can't explain cause I didn't really understand) did solve some of the problems but I would love to hear from anyone who reads my blog.  Mainly can you see my followers in my sidebar or is this disappearance now just happening on my computer?  For a while you could only see followers if you came direct, not from someone else's blog but that hopefully is OK now. I know that this is a problem that others are experiencing as I sometimes can't see the followers and the button doesn't work on other blogs.  Thanks to everyone who responds, I will be so grateful as this is really driving me nuts!  Thank goodness for my hexie distraction and a big thank you again to Kelly for the delightful giveaway.

I can see your followers pix and I came from "Quiltsalott". Love your Blackbirds design hanging--so lovely. My problem is that I cannot leave comments on some of my followers blogs for some a new blogger, so perhaps I am missing something??Julierose

I can see your followers and see myself there in the bottom corner. I came here through my google reader. I was on a blog earlier today where I could tell she had the follower gadget on her blog but I couldn't see her followers or join. I went out and back in again and the followers were there. I've had problems commenting for over a week-first on blogs that didn't have comments in a pop up window and then all of them. I wonder what browser you are using. I've been trying Firefox and haven't had trouble using that. I know it is frustrating when blogger doesn't work right. Oh and congrats on your win....great goodies there. Love that fabric line!

I have the same issue with my followers disappearing from time to time. When I clicked on your blog from mine (clicking on the name of this new post) I could not see your followers, so I refreshed your page, but still no followers. Then I clicked on your blog's title, and there were your followers. I don't know what the problem is, but you aren't alone. (Congrats on your wonderful goodies too!)

I can see your followers.

I have your blog listed on my blog side bar.

Congratulations on such a lovely win. I had to refresh the page before your followers comes up. Sometimes I lose it on my blog for a day and I think it's blogger glitches. I found that if I go into the followers in my dashborad to edit and just click save again, it reappears.

Congrats on your wins. They are fabulous.
I can see your followers today. When I can't see them and I need to I just hit the "refresh" button and they usually pop up.

Mine come and go as well, I think it is a mystery!
Congratulations on your win!

THe first time I lost all of my followers, and more importantly, all the blog I followed I freaked out! But they alwlays come back after a few refreshes. It's a Blogger problem, not you!
