Long lost blogger . . .

. . . . returns with a collection of pics from last month's West Country Embroiderers' meeting. There are 2 pincushions featured, in silk, from the previous month's workshop. My effort is going to be a book cover, eventually, as I wouldn't be able to stick pins in such a special object! And the small blue bag is what we were working to in June. We were creating raised features using felt padding and embroidery stitches and beads, then working a kantha-style running stitch all over the background to give further relief effect.

I've had a break from blogging, but am back now. I was getting peculiar comment messages which were really links to some dubious places, not genuine commenters at all. They seemed to come in response to a new post, so I thought Iwouldn't post for a bit and see what happened when I came back. Any solutions, anyone please? I could disable comments altogether, but that seems a shame.

Be a shame as you show some beautiful stitching. Would using the authenication box help, then automatic responses wouldn't get through

I wish I had some solutions for you. Miss 376 seems to echop anything I would have suggested.

What lovely pieces you have shown.

I don't think there is anything you can do apart from moderate comments. I just had my first non-authentic comment - I took it as a rite of passage in the blogging world!
