Today, I realized this is my 200th post. Lately I felt very rushed when I do my posting, and I never get to say all that I told myself I would say. So here is a post with a bit more content than usual:
- Update on Elizabeth Savilles of course!
- Blogger Comments settings (yes, once again)
- Audio books recommendations
- Garden stars this past week
Woo-hooo! I got a lot stitched since last week. That's the up side of rainy days! I am really enjoying stitching her now that I have decided I can make changes as I go. Some of those "missing" stitches may be "found" later too. I will see how I feel about filling in the little bits as I go. (ps I am so delighted with how she is looking!)
Blogger Comments Settings:
Some of us cannot leave comments on blogs where the comment setting is "embedded". I have mentioned this in the past but this problem has gotten worse as Blogger has made the "embedded" option as the default when people set up new blogs.
I have looked but have not found "the cure" other than if the owner of the blog changes the setting to "pop up window" or "full page". I have let a few blog owners know and most are very happy to know this as they want people to be able to leave comments. You are under no obligation, of course to change this, but I thought I would let you know of this problem some of us have.
To change the setting, when you are logged into Blogger and see your Dashboard, etc, select Settings on the left hand column, then select Post & Comments. Under Comments there is a drop down box. There you can select "Full Page" or "Pop Up Window" should you so choose.
If you have any questions, please email me. Thank you.
Audio books recommendations:
Good stories to listen to always help my stitching!

- Touch, by Alexi Zentner
Garden stars this past week:
BIG, Bold, Beautiful pink Peonies followed by small, tiny-in-comparison Astrantia, then a photo of my small veggie patch.
Despite all the rain, the garden is still going! Some of the berries are behind schedule as there hasn't been enough sun but it will come. Today, as a matter of fact, is Sunny! How long it will stay is another matter.
Julius and Daisy say *yawn* It's Nap Time! Actually, it's always nap time for them! Cats are amazing at their abilities to snooze anywhere, anytime!
Any plans for summer vacation? We will be hanging around close to home me thinks.
Thank you once again for your visits! Hope you are enjoying some nice weather. Have a great week!
