This morning when I opened the blog, my comments section was filled with literally hundreds of horrible porno comments. Then I started remembering about some recent problems with posting comments and that’s when I let you know there was trouble.
The details now are not important but I think you’ll understand my anxiety and fear as I started looking for the problem. There is a spam blocker subscription that had been turned off basically because I hadn’t paid the bill. Remember the hacked credit card? Yup, I didn’t think to update that spam subscription when I got my new credit card. I really do think it’s OK now but if anyone has trouble posting comments in the future, please let me know – this time I will fix it fast before all hell breaks loose. I have had to clean up the mess manually.
Let’s talk about Reed and his quilt, should we? He has such a grasp of piecing that I showed him a block and he immediately knew how it should be sewed together. One of his corners was off about 1/16th of an inch and he wondered if he should rip it out. I held it up and said “could you see that from a galloping horse?” He said no and I said then leave it! He is a meticulous piecer. You readers even notice when he has a new haircut! Someone asked if Reed was a relative. Reed is my friend Cheryl’s grandson who lives just a couple miles from me and goes to my church. His interests are not necessarily those of his family – animals mainly, gardening, succulents, quilting, photography, wildlife – all those things that I love! Having Reed in my life has allowed me to experience being a grandparent in a way. He is doing a super good job on his log cabin quilt and I have little doubt that it will qualify for the State Fair.
Here are some quick answers/comments:
1. I read every single comment and answer most of them. If you ask me a question, I am going to answer in the comments as well. If you don’t read those comments how are you going to know I answered your question?
2. I hate Facebook and Messenger – please don’t send me things in Messenger.
3. The reason my chickens are laying so many eggs is because they have heat and light through the winter.
4. I also learned to iron on hankies and pillowcases.
5. I really can’t update your blog subscription with a new email because you need to confirm at your end.
6. Please proofread your book titles and authors.
Here is a barn picture I took this morning – baby chick peeking out from under Mama.
And here is the block I’m using for the Kaffe project.
It comes from this book.
It’s called Pastel 9 Patch – not my definition of a 9 patch but…..
I hate these jelly rolls that have such a wide pinked edge – makes it so hard to sew accurately because it’s about 1/4″ deep. Gotta remember that the next time I shop.
And here’s an updated goat coat report – it’s hanging off of Emma!
Connie and I have discussed making up grab bags but we’re appalled at how expensive the postage really is. Are you aware that a priority mail box is $8-10? And by the time we fill it with fabric, books, notions or whatever, the cost will be quite high. And what if you just hate the things we put in your box? We’re not sure this is a good idea. Thoughts?
My morning “chat” has brought me up to chore time! Oh, what a terrible day! I’ll hope for a better one tomorrow!
