We aren't doing anything special today except having DS#1 over for dinner.  He has a flight to catch this afternoon, so we're eating early.

I decided to do a post and let you know about the problems I'm having with Blogger.  I have been reading blogs and commenting, but the comments don't seem to go through.  I usually see a "sign in" notice at the top of any blog I am visiting, including my own, and when I click on it, it takes me directly to the page we go to when we want to start a new post or change something on our blog page, etc.  Even when I'm on someone else's blog!  And I don't have to sign in, I am already signed in.

But, when I want to comment on someone else's blog, and I type something in the comment field, it doesn't recognize me with my name in the bottom of the field - and that's when I don't think my comments are working.  Last week, there was one time when my name did appear in the comment field, but now I can't remember which blog it was, so if you did get a comment from me, please let me know.

I'm sorry that you haven't been receiving my comments and I don't know how to fix it.  Any advice will be appreciated.  I did leave some feedback to google, but I don't know if it will get to anyone,

Well, enough of that!  On so a few pictures.

This is a wall hanging that DH liked a lot.  I like it too.  I had made one to sell and decided to make another one for us.

A long time ago I shows pictures of some blocks that my Mom gave me.  The blocks were made by my Grandma sometime in the 30's, 40's or 50's.  I had planned to make them into a bed quilt, but I got to thinking about it and in talking to my sister, I decided to make a wall hanging or 2 out of them and offer to give the blocks, either as they are, or made into wall hangings, to any of my cousins who might want them.  I just finished one wall hanging using 2 of the blocks.  I plan to keep this one for myself.  It measures 22" x 40".  The next one I make will be a blue tulip and I'll put blue fabric on the corners to make a smaller wall hanging.

I recently realized that I don't have a patriotic, red-white-blue table runner of my own!  I have several other table runners, but I need one for the summer holidays.  So I started making some 6" sawtooth stars in civil war fabrics and I will probably alternate them with blue squares.  I might even make a r/w/b table topper for my dining table.  This is what I have so far and I plan to make some more red stars, but haven't decided how many.

Today is a day to remember the sacrifices made by so many so that we can have the life we have.  I am very thankful for our wonderful country and the many men and women who keep our country free (including my son and DIL).


  1. I love those little tulip blocks. I wish I was one our your cousins. Happy Memorial Day!

  2. So hard to know how to solve the comment issue. I don't think I've seen a comment from you in at least two or three months, so don't know if you've attempted to post one. I know google shut down google plus a couple months ago so if you were using that, it might be part of the issue. That plus if you're connecting your blog to an email that isn't google that can also cause issues. Google doesn't like to play nice with anyone else.

  3. Lovely blocks your Grandma did. I love them and looking forward to see more of them. In the first picture, I love the Home Sweet Farm. That is so cute! Regarding your blog issue, have you tried to sign out and then sign back in to see if it would resolve itself? I'm just saying. Good luck with that. ;^)

  4. I love the tulip blocks - what a treasure to have them and so nice of you to offer to share! As for comments, I was having the same problem. I was using the default Samsung browser on my phone, but Chrome on my real computer. Phone ate comments, as you described, but computer was fine. So I decided to try using Chrome for blog comments and so far, so good. It's been a few weeks now and I still am signed in with my name and comments show up as expected. I'd been dealing with this a few weeks ago, so it seems my troubles were ahead of the curve, but that gives me the advantage of being able to help! So...if you're not using Chrome as your browser, try that. Both Chrome and Blogger are Google-owned, so I guess Google decided to not play nice with other browsers? I'm hoping a future update will fix this, but in the meantime, give it a shot!

  5. Since I have been bad about posting, I don't have any input regarding the comments. Hope you can find a fix for it. I love the patriotic wall hanging, so pretty. The tulip blocks are adorable, your family will love them. The red stars are adorable, they would look good with some blue in the setting. Hope you had a nice weekend!

  6. As your comrades in arms through many conflicts, may I take this opportunity to acknowledge the service and sacrifice of your American servicemen and women on this, their special day of remembrance. Blogger had been giving me grief too Ruth and I'm using Chrome. Now it's emails. Sigh. How lovely to have those pretty tulip blocks to make into something special.Those red/cream stars have loads of potential.

  7. Love your patriotic quilts!
    Looks like you have some good ideas about posting comments. Are you using an ipad? Make sure you are going straight to the blog and not through an existing link, on facebook or bloglovin.

  8. Your blue and white basket quilt in the header is a beauty!
