More from me...

If you pop over to the Knotted Thread today, you'll find me there as part of Jennifer's Follower Friday series.

Photobucket

I have been bumping into Jennifer over the last few months on flickr and in blogland; she is super lovely and one of the merry band of Mouthy Stitchers too.  You must check out this awesome cross-stitch she currently has on the go.  Thank you for having me Jennifer x

And for those of you who complained as if it was my fault asked so nicely, you will notice that I have taken off the ridiculous new Blogger word verification; I will keep an eye on the recurrence of spam and see how it goes.  Spam-magnet that I am, I have already chosen not to publish a couple of comments that tried to be posted on older posts.   NB. when I am back at work, there will be a big old window of unchecked time, so please excuse any random comments that could appear for the worst part of a day.

Finally, here are a pair of purses I whipped up after tea last night for a couple of the girls' friends...


About as simple as it gets!

Now I've just got to finish the ironing mountain, and I am set for the weekend!

  5. Very sweet purses. My tumble dryer kept going wrong. The reason (I discovered myself with no help from anyone else) was that my ironing basket on top of the dryer was too heavy and stopped the drum from rotating.....guessed it was time to crack on and get to the bottom of the pile! Oh and thanks for removing the code :)

    I hate the new word verification - I never get it right first time and often it's easier not to bother!

  14. Oh blogger will block most of the worst spam for you, not to worry. That is a nice feature, but I see you are still picking on brown.

  15. Thank you for removing that vile word verification! Blogger is great about blocking the spam, even though it makes its way into my email inbox, it never shows up on my blog. Cute little purses!

  19. I have had word verification turned off for quite some time and don't have a problem as long as I keep "allow anonymous" turned off. The minute you allow anonymous commenters the spams are every day.
