A charity shop find

Is anybody having problems commenting on Blogger posts?  My 'follow' button is missing and I only have 'publish' and 'preview' below people's posts?  I used to be able to 'follow' when I didn't have a comment to make and then when others had chimed in I then popped a comment through. That's missing now.  I haven't changed anything either.

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing in a charity shop in Alcester when I found a dark navy t-shirt in excellent condition. A Marks and Spencer one too. I thought I'd better take it home with me as it looked like it needed a place to live!!!

I'd had it in mind that I ought to update the large seahorse pattern on my site so that's what I did.

This time I used two strands of sewing thread - HWT to make the piece.  The updated version of the pattern is now on my site.  See the above link.

You have very lucky finds! The t- shirt is definitely yours now, with the seahorse.

I can go for months without finding anything but this one did prompt me to look at the seahorse again!!!

There are many days I have trouble posting a comment. I always mean to follow up with an email, but somehow I forget! It looks like today is a day when my comment will work.

Love the seahorse, and I think you need to update my wardrobe! ;-)

Okay, now I've gone through five photo verification pages. I hope this goes through!

Great seahorse and shirt!! :)

Ah, you too, Diane. What annoys me is that I can't now follow a blog without leaving a comment. Grrrrr.

Beautiful seahorse :)
I've had a few problems with posts too. Sometimes when I click on "publish" it understand "vanish" and all my words disappear. When the post is short I start over but if it's a long one I admit I give up. It doesn't happen a lot, but enough to annoy me immensely :(

Jane Eborall said...

It's very odd, craftie sylvie as now I see 'publish' and 'preview' under people's posts and I've tried 'preview' and it looks as if it's published. I'm not sure what's happening. Then the 'follow' button has gone at the bottom there too. Not fair of them to confuse an old person like me who is easily confused anyway.

Nice updating of a dress! Liked the big seahorse.

Love the seahorse on the shirt :-) I've 3 button under here, publish, preview and "notify me", but I rarely click the second and third. The "notify me" disappears when you open for example an incognito tab, when google doesn't recognise you. Hope this help to understand.

Jane Eborall said...

Thanks, Ninetta. Those are the 3 buttons I used to have but now I've only got 'preview' and 'publish'. I've read that Blogger are doing some changes but I hope this isn't a permanent one. Also my comments are obviously not getting through on other people's blogs either. Time to take action, I think. I'll see if I can contact blogger somehow. I'll try logging out of google first and then logging in again. I so appreciate you letting me know that yours is fine, though.
