Good News and More About the Give-Away!

Thanks to the wonderful advice of Honora at the blog"Pondside House" I got rid of the nasty blog posts.  Her blog is very pretty .  I love it because she is very poetic with many of her posts.  Thanks so much Honora!! Now a bit more information on the give away.  The date on the chart is 2003, so it is definitely out-of-print. I forgot to say that I will be drawing the name on Sunday Jan. 26th.  If you would like to be included, please leave a comment on my LAST post. Here is a bit more information.

 I got this chart when the designer was stopping her design business.

 My photo yesterday did not include the cute little saying at the bottom.  I'm stitching that now.

The directions are also given  to stitch this as a cute heart shaped pillow. 

Thanks to all of you who tried to help with my blog issue and good luck with the drawing.

Cross Stitch, Gardening, and a Give Away!

Thanks so much to all of you who expressed support for our Seahawks!  Things have settled down just a bit for a short time.  I have put my mind back on "normal" things.  First, I'll explain yesterday's problem.  The nasty posts were not on my comments.  Somehow this blog was in my list of blogs that posted recently on my dashboard.   We looked at my list of blogs that I follow and it was not there.  I have no idea how it got on that list.  For the time being I am just skipping all the posts.  Hopefully ignoring them will make them go away.  We did try to report it to Google but that didn't work.  Now on to much better things.  I am almost finished with "Hearts and Flowers" by Carriage House Samplings. It is an older chart so I have decided to give it away when I am finished ( 2 or 3 days).  If you would like this chart, just let me know in the comments on this post.  I'm also showing you a few pretty pictures from my yard walk today.

 The linen is Lakeside Linen Sand Dune, much prettier than the drab looking linen in this photo.

 Here is my crazy daffodil that thinks it is Spring!

It's relatives have the good sense to stay in the ground!

 I love Witch Hazel trees this time of year!  They are covered with pretty blooms. We need to go over to the UW Arboretum.  They have many different varieties and colors.

 These flowers have a nice smell.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and thanks so much for joining me!

A question

First, thanks to all of you who wished the Seahawks well!  Thank you!!!!! Here is a problem I am having on the blog.  I got many x-rated blog posts showing up on my list of posts. The DH and I are trying to figure out how to ban a blog from posting on my blog site.  I never gave this blog permission and don't have any idea how it got there.  We want to find a way to prevent these posting or delete them.   Any ideas?  There must have been 15 or more different posts.Oh, and by the way, we only looked at one to see if they were for real.  YUK!!!!!!! thanks for any help you can give me.
