Blogger problems resolved!

 Blogger problems resolved!

I finally figured out the problem. I'm not sure why settings on my MacBook changed because I deleted cookies but they did. I've been methodically researching and trying things and then today I was going to use online banking and couldn't. I then, knew exactly what the problem was (I've encountered this before): in Safari (my browser), under Settings, Privacy, "Prevent cross site tracking" cannot be checked. Glad that's resolved!

Blogger problems

Two days ago I decided to delete the cookies on my MacBook. And now I cannot comment on any blog posts. I have researched, followed suggestions, and nothing changes. I will continue looking for the problem but for the time being, I will not be leaving any comments.

A finish, a new griddle, and more


I bought a coral print ombre fabric at Sew Complete in Eau Claire, WI, last fall and decided to use that with various grays that were in my stash from the same trip and before. I arranged the blocks going from dark (upper left) to light (lower right).

The backing is a gray with circles that I found at Lolly's in Shipshewana, IN, last summer.

I free motion quilted this on the long arm with a meander stitch using Glide 40-wt #10877 Sterling Gray thread on the top and Glide 40-wt #10430 Battleship Gray thread on the back. 

This donation quilt is 57" by 68". It was fun to make and went together quickly.

There are 3 quilt designs in my head that I haven't quite put together yet. Hopefully soon. In the meantime, this quilt is on the design wall. The white background squares are Stargazer from MSQC. The blue squares are my addition.

When I last wrote, I was excited about the new kitchen appliances coming. The refrigerator caused all kinds of drama-- it's too tall... I ordered the right size... phone call.. it is the right height in back so it will fit... old one out...new one in...oops the doors won't open like they should...new one out... old one back in. So we have a new dishwasher and we still have our old refrigerator. Thank goodness it is still working and I hope it continues to run until we find a new one. We have to have a 33" with the doors opening level to the sides - which one can't find right now because they are only making 36". Eventually all things should return to more or less normal so we'll have to wait...

And the real excitement in the kitchen is our new Teppanyaki Griddle. Here it is on our gas stove right after we seasoned it. We did bubble the panel on the back of our stove from excessive heat when we were seasoning it. It's just the panel cover that bubbled a bit; everything still works fine. 

Here is one recent meal - smash burgers, buns, grilled onions, zucchini, and potatoes.

It's fun to cook on and easy to clean. We have a long list of things we want to try on it. Bon App├ętit!
