A Couple Questions about Blogger ~

Is anyone else having problems leaving comments when there is word verification?  I am having to type three or four words before Blogger says I have typed it correctly.  I know I'm not the world's greatest typist, but I also know I'm not making that many errors!

Also, I want to add an icon to my sidebar that says "email me".  I know how to add the icon, but can't figure out how to link it to my email.  One time a kind blogger explained it to me, but I haven't a clue where to find that email.  Sometimes I am blogger stupid (!) so I need very explicit instructions :)

Still no prospective home for Annie . . . sigh.  How can you not love that face?

I have several bins full of woolly worms from my early hooking days.  They were all purchased on eBay before I had a cutter and before I knew the difference between good and bad wool.  These worms run the gamut of really good, okay and so-so at best.  They are an 8 cut, but we know that all 8 cuts are not created equal.  With that being said, I am giving these away.  I will draw 2 names on Sunday, sometime after 6pm, and send a box of worms to those two people.  {I see there are no green worms ~ I'll add some of those and more.}  It's simple to enter . . . just leave a comment on this post only or send me an email with give-away in the subject line. 

Once again it's winter in Ohio.  A couple of inches of snow today and more in tomorrow's forecast.  I did spend a few minutes hooking by the fire this evening.  I'm still working on my hearts.

Thanks for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)

Hi Lauren,

I just added email me image to my site. If you'd like, come to my site and click on it and email me so I have your email, if that is ok .Then as soon as I can I will tell you how.

I have to remember how I did it too. lol I am one who is in need of 'Blogging For Dummies' sometimes LOL

I also have a new blog for selling out quite ready yet but I have 5 followers already...

I have had the word verification problem happen a time or two I think not sure why its happening.

Take care, Janet W

Lol, I did it but don't remember how. I know I googled for directions though.

And onto the worms....Since I'm a new hooker I don't have a worm stash, lol, and would love to win your giveaway. I'm so excited to really get into hooking. Why does that alway sound wrong? :-)

Hi Lauren,
When you use the picture gadget and add your picture you want to use for your email button..... just type mailto: (and your email address) in the url space.

Try it and if you still have problems let me know and I can try and explain it better!!

Don't computers drive you crazy?!!

I thought it was me or my computer. I am having odd problems. I click on leave a comment and the screen freezes and it is only on some blogs not all.
poor annie she needs a forever home but she has a cozy place until then.

Ann said...

Lauren, I see from the comments you've had followers who said they would help with your email button. Let me know if you still need help and I can walk you through it.

I would love to be entered into your wool giveaway.


Jacqueline said...

Whoo Hoo, please put my name in the hat. I would love to win some worms. I am relatively new to hooking so this will help with the build up of my stash.

Winter advisory for us in Ohio starting at 5 today... get ready to hunker down for the weekend and hook.

LuLu said...

wow I'd love some worms - I have just started my second rug so I dont have much of a stash yet but i'm sure i will some day lol

Kristen said...

I would love to win your worms! I am new to hooking and I buy kits with precut wool because I don't have a cutter, I can draw out my own patterns to hook but I don't have any wool so I would love to win and make a nice rug to show you once complete!

Hi, Lauren. I would love to win all of those worms so that I can start rug hooking.
Annie is so darn cute, I'd be so attached to her if I were you.

Kim said...

Yeah, I'm in the middle of my own love/hate relationship with blogger. I want to use the cute new thread commenting function but its giving me fits!
Nice looking pile of worms there. A hookers dream!

old crow said...

Hi, I have been having trouble with comments on my blog too!!! Please enter me in youe "worm" giveaway!! I am new to rug hooking. Would love to have a stash!! Now lets see if i can post this!!! Good luck with blogger!

Hugs, Mona

Janet said...


Yes Orange Sink said it in the easiest way. Me, I would probably get you more confused.

Add a gaget....put in your picture..clear the http:// out of the box above and put in mailto:youremailaddress then save and the is all. Then check your picture on your blog. :)

Took me a while to figure it out even when I was told how.

Take care, Janet W

Lauren, I would love to give your worms a home! Annie is just so sweet, I'm sure her forever home is out there just waiting for her. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I too have been having trouble commenting on blogs. A white page appears and nothing more. I hope this issue with blogger is resolved soon. Have a wonderful weekend, blessings Julie.

Merry Wind Farm said...

After seeing that you just joined my blog, I went to your profile and saw that you have a blog! I just love it, Rugs and Pugs is just about the cutest expression I have ever heard. You should copyright it! The pugs are adorable and your rug hooking is gorgeous! I'm looking forward to following your blog.

Julia said...

Poor little Annie, I hope that someone with a big heart will adopt her soon.

I haven't had any problems with posting comments on any blogs but I sure hope that you have everything figured out. It can be so frustrating.

Hooking by the fire looks so cosy. I would like to skip winter and go straight to spring. I had enough of winter already. Never been much of a fan in my old age I'm afraid.

Lauren, I would love to have my name in the draw for your wool worms. They looks so well behaved. I would give them a good home.

Have a great weekend. hugs, JB
