Thursdays Are Good

Thursdays are good, very good, because I really enjoy stitching on Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace :-) She continues to be a quick stitch so far. And, tonight she got a hand - with part of a butterfly sitting on it... and part of a wing!

I got a nice email from Judith today, letting me know that her birthday gift has arrived safely! Another one that literally shot across the Atlantic Ocean in absolute record time (under a week, once again - go USPS!!). I think I must have been in the mood for spring when I pulled the colors for this wee fob! Fortunately, Judith says she likes the colors. I almost wanted to keep this one for myself, to be quite honest - LOL!

I was told today by a good friend that she cannot seem to leave comments in my blog lately - you know, good old Blogger not functioning properly and the word verification box not appearing as it needs to... so, I shut of word verification, figuring I would give that a go until spam reoccurred. Wouldn't you know - three spam messages in old 2005 posts appeared almost immediately! Sadly, I switched word verification back on. Not to worry, dearest friends, I know you are out there and reading my blog - I don't feel snubbed - LOL!! Love you!

Dawn is beautiful, you are progressing really well with her.

Great progress on Dawn, Carol!
That's an adorable fob you stitched for Judith. Will you ever stop?? :)

I have had that problem of the word verification picture not showing up sometimes. Refreshing the page usually does the trick. ;)
Other than that, you might like to enable comment moderation. I do that for my French blog, because I'm not sure all the commenters would type the word verification in (as the instructions are in English). Of course it means publishing each comment, which takes a bit of time. ;)

When the word verification bit doesn't show up for me, I just CTRL+C the text I've typed and hit the Publish button anyway. When Blogger decides I haven't entered the text properly and pops up a new word verification - and that one's usually visible. ;)

Your fob to Judith is gorgeous. Very delicate and Spring-like. :)

Judith said...

I am still in love with the fob very much.
Nice progress by the way.

Jenn said...

Dawn is so pretty and the FOB is so pretty. I just love the colors in it. Your right very Spring feeling.

It might be a cookie issue, too. I have had problems occasionally leaving comments...and it is usually because I have blocked a cookie.

Your fob is absolutely wonderful!

Vonna said...

Dawn is looking fabulous!!!
She is beautiful and the fabric you are doing her on is gorgeous!

You have so inspired me with fobs! I'm teaching my Girl Scouts to do them next meeting....I think with 18 girls (ages 7-9) and teaching cross stitch, I'll need to visit Jack Daniels afterwards, but he's always such a gracious host :) LOL!

Carla said...

Deanne J said...

Dawn looks amazing, and such a sweet fob.

Jenna said...

I'm really enjoy watching Dawn blossom under your skilled finger. It's such a beautiful design. :) Congratulations on another very cute and well-received scissors fob!

Michelle said...

I just keep hitting refresh until the verification thingy comes up correctly. Love the fob, the colors are so bright and cheery. Your Dawn is looking so pretty. I really want to stitch this one more and more everytime I see yours.

Tracy Baby said...

Your fob is lovely very nice colors.
I have been having trouble leaving comments too this seems a very common problem at the moment.

Tannia said...

Dawn is coming along very nicely - I reallyl iek the fabric you chose for her :)

If I don't see the word verification (although it happens not so often since I got cable!) I do what isabelle does :)

JOT said...

Lovely stitching!

Dawn is looking so pretty, love the butterfly. Your fob turned of lovely, I can see how you'd have been tempted to keep it.

As to the word verification, sometimes it doesn't show up for me either (either on yours or on other's blogs). I just hit publish comment anyway, and the screen refreshes as the correct letters were not in it the first time. Generally the second time the letters are visable again, if not I do it again.
