A Stitching UFO Received, Blog Spam, & Orange Cookie Recipe
Recently I was hit with over a dozen blog 'spam' comments. In the course of a few minutes, someone posted these comments to all these old posts I had here, and the comments consisted of links to adult sites. They have all been deleted, but because of that I have now started 'comment moderation' on this blog. I apologize if your comment doesn't show up right away, and know that it is due to my little clash with blog spam.
Has your blog been spammed in this way? If so, how did you handle it?
Stitching UFO Received
A friend of mine is in the process of downsizing. She has sold a lot of her craft supplies, and I recently purchased handfuls of fun rubber stamps from her. They're great for me to use on students' papers, and for crafts at school.
On a stitchy note, she gave me this project:
She'd started it quite awhile ago, and she knew it would never get finished. In my book, it's become a UFO. (unfinished object) It's Candamar Designs' "Teacup Stack". I probably never would have bought the project myself, but I thought it might be fun to work on from time to time. My friend also said she didn't want it back, ever! On the downside, it's on an Aida fabric. I haven't worked on Aida in a long time, and I'm not too fond of it anymore. Even so, this poor project needs a bit of TLC and attention. It's also mounted on a sort of stretcher bar frame that rolls, so that will be something new for me if I decide to continue using that set-up. We'll just have to see.
Have you ever adopted a UFO? Did you have any success in finishing it?
I have been stitching some on Summer Queen, and last night I even added more beads. I decided that one shouldn't wait for years in between working with beads. The experience needs to be done more frequently, so that skills in adding beads don't get completely lost!
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stitching to you!
