Blog Problems

Hmmm, I just noticed that the "comments" isn't showing up at the end of my latest blog entry. I've checked my settings, and it was still checked, even though some of my other settings for other features had been changed, and not by me! I have changed those back, and can only hope that the comments will be fixed soon.

I'm still getting that error message and having some blogs shut down when I try to read them, but have learned that if you click on the back arrow up the left hand corner of your screen, that the blog page will come back and you can then read it!

If you are trying to leave a comment, know that I appreciate your efforts, and I thank you for taking time to look at postings!

Have a great evening!



Halloween Projects, Almost Complete & Brand New

We had to make our occasional trip back to the Mayo Clinic, and my hubby wound up having more testing done, than originally scheduled. No one can ever say that they aren't thorough!

But there was little time for stitching, nor the light for it. I've got to get myself one of those portable Ott lights for the motel room.


I did manage to get some more done on my Halloween project, The Giving Sisters though. It was the easiest one to take along each day, not requiring as many thread changes, and was smaller.


It is now SO close to being done, I wanted to complete it before posting a photo, but I'm way behind in my promise to myself, and couldn't wait any longer.


I'm amazed at how much my Ott light washes out the earthy color of the fabric. It actually looks like tea dyed fabric when you see it in natural light.


Since this one was near completion, and I'll need to choose another for my rotation, I was already sorting through my other patterns to see what caught my fancy the most.


Then, I got an e-mail showing new projects, and this one jumped out at me, leaping to next in line position. I think that it is a good pairing with The Giving Sisters.


It is the new Witches Stitch Too!! designed by Sandra Sullivan, from Homespun Elegance. I've got the pattern already, and this is the photo on the cover.


I've also got another project in mind to add. Something completely different in style than I've done before, but it just looks like fun. But I'll leave that for the next time!


I hope that everyone has a wonderful week, and may you find time to do something just for the fun of it!
