I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 25. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, three Essex , one Singer 20. one Singer 40 and a Vulcan Countess. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

my mother always said I should have been a teacher!.......

Thanks to one of my faithful followers asking this question.....     "Helen, how come I can't leave a comment on your blog!"     I thought I would investigate......    now this is not the old Bloglovin' issue with the person unable to leave a comment on the blog page but able to do so once the Post is opened up in another window....   no no no.....  this is where you can see the comment box but it won't recognise you and therefore you can't leave a comment.

I replied to my friend that she should change her Browser first and also check that she was actually signed in (in this case to Google).  Turned out that the Browser she WAS using was not signing her in correctly but once she changed Browsers, all was well!

So, if you are having trouble playing in Blogland, sometimes it pays to change your Browser and see if that solves your problems.

I noticed last night that I was unable to utilise the "lightbox" viewer when I was Blog surfing - so I changed to another Browser and the problem was solved!

Okay!  so that's the lesson for today :-)

Happy Blogging!
