Progress has been made on a stitchery I started a month or two ago, and I have enjoyed working on it some mornings before work. Our bedroom gets lots of morning light and the sun sure comes up early these days.

Since I last shared a photo, I've completed all the flower petals and almost all of the Mason jar glass aqua color. The aqua and a gray for the jar lid were purchased for this stitchery, as neither color was present in my thread stash in the right shade. See more slow stitching on Kathy's blog. There is a stray thread on the stitchery in this picture, from the other project consuming my time, a version Narragansett Blues (Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville pattern).
The plain border was added today and two of the pieced borders assembled and added. It is now too big for my sewing room so I had to lay it out in the living room to take the photo. The brown floor isn't the best complement for the shot :)
I am happy with the way the corners look before the border, they really are straight! This tan print has been hoarded in my stash for a few years and, since every other piece of fabric for this quilt came from scraps and stash, I didn't feel too badly about cutting into it!
The changes Blogger has been making so far have resulted in a lot of alarm by Blogger users--we are not getting any comments emailed to us. Similarly, it is now impossible to directly reply to a comment on a post, and if the commenter doesn't have an attached email, it's a dead end. Blogger has eliminated Open ID and is working on changes to permission for third party apps--commenters would all be changed to "Anonymous" and we would have to change settings to allow anonymous commenters. Many of us who use the Blogger platform restrict Anonymous commenters to keep spammers at bay. I'm not sure if this is being done so that everyone who wants to read Blogger blogs has to get a Google account or what. I'm going to try a suggestion another blogger used, which is to make the first comment on my own post and click the "notify me of follow up comments" to see if I get them emailed to me that way. After nine years of blogging, I'm not sure what the future brings with this platform!
