Scandinavian Christmas progress and Word Verification

001

I have had focus on my Scandinavian Christmas quilt now.  Just realised there is only 3 months to Christmas, and if I want to have this quilt up on the wall this Christmas I better speed up a little bit.

004

All main block is done.  And I have prepped the last six snowflakes blocks that need to be stitched.  I am not that fond of this Transfere Eze.  Find it a little bit sticky and hard to stitch on.  But in this case, sewing all these cross stitched I really started to like it.

First block finished with the snowflakes and churn dash blocks.
It was fun finally starting to sew it together.

Block two is ready to be done. The most difficult part is to match fabrics for the churn dash blocks.

WORD VERIFICATION

After reading Bonnie Hunters blogpost about the *#&%¤¤# word verification (you should really read her post too) I have decided to remove it from my blog so that you all can leave comments. I have noticed there has been less and less comments on my blog, and I have got a few emails telling me they are having trouble leaving comments because of the word verification. And I have also experinced the same trying to comment on other blogs.  I have spam filter on my blog, and I have noticed that almost all spam that has arrived lately has been detected by the spam filter and it has gone into that box. And all comments is going to my mailbox for me to publish before it shows on my blog, so I can stop spam that way too.

So I hope by doing this I will have you back commenting on my blog Smilefjes

Thanks for making it easier. Love your blog,

Ondrea said...

That quilt is going to be stunning!

Yes, I agree that word verification is often too difficult when in a hurry and sometimes I cannot read it properly. I hope it works well for you without it.

Love those reindeer!

I don't have the word verification either. It's easy enough to deal with the spam before it gets published.

Yessss, the word verification is history!
You have a wonderful blog, you do a lot of lovely patchwork and quilting - keep up the good work!
