Comments & An Update on Fern

I really enjoy reading all of your kind comments on my blog, they really mean a lot.  That's why I'm upset that I cannot comment on some blogs and I can't figure out why.  I will type my comment into the comment box and when I hit "publish", it just disappears.  Does anyone else have this problem and were you able to fix it?  It is driving me insane!

Not much stitching has gone on here so far this weekend.  Friday afternoon/evening was spent traveling to Pittsburgh to pick up my brother who had become sick while driving (he is a truck driver) and ended up in the hospital.  He had no way home so my husband and I made the trip to get him.  He's fine now and just needs some rest.

Yesterday was spent cleaning the house and the evening was spent at a dinner for work.  We have an annual retirement dinner where we recognize everyone that had retired the past year.  We also give out years of service awards.  I received a watch for my 25 years of service!  It's a beautiful watch and I tried to take a picture to share, but no matter what I did I couldn't get a good shot of it.  I'm not that great with a camera!

I did put some stitches into Fern last week.  Here's how she looks now.

Today will be spent doing laundry but I should be able to get some stitching in too!

Have a great Sunday everyone and Happy Stitching!

Fern is looking wonderful! Great job! Glad your brother is doing okay and congrats on 25 years! That's amazing!

Oh, she's just getting more and more beautiful every time you post!

I wish I could tell you why your responses are disappearing. I have had this problem in the past, but not recently. Have you tried creating another google mail account and using that? Just a thought.

Did you stitch on All Hearts today?

I hope your brother is better soon!

25 years! Wow, well done. I managed 17 with the firm before I went on maternity leave and never went back!

When you comment, have you checked you are signed into Google properly? Last year I had a problem where I could only comment if I signed in afresh each day.

You can see if you are signed in under "Choose an identity" under the comment field.

Sometimes when I comment on a blog, my comment doesn't show right away, but at the top of the comment box, it will say, "Your comment has been saved and will show after approval from the blog owner" or something like that. Or maybe you have to scroll down further and enter the dreaded Captcha codes.

Fern is beautiful!
