Quilting Dr. Seuss

Every spare quilting moment this week has been spent machine quilting my Dr. Seuss quilt. 
The supervisor is keeping a close watch on the quilter and ensuring a high quality product! LOL
My blog surfing has been frustrating recently since I enjoy leaving encouraging comments on my favorite blogs, but the new comment verification process is too much for me.  When I want to comment, if the blog has this verification, I just won't take that extra time to try to decipher and type out weird codes which I can never seem to get correct. Makes me feel sad, but my computer time is so limited that I just can't waste time on that. Anyone else having the same frustration??

I didn't realize there were new settings, so thanks for that. :)
I went in and changed mine. I hope it's easier now cuz I like comments.

I sure like this quilt!

Yes it's driving me crazy!!!
Hope I can get this to post

I have noticed that and don't have the verification on mine. Some have a Math problem. They should just set their blogs to no anonymous comments rather than the word Verification.

Oh yes, and by various comments on other blogs, a lot are feeling the same. My eyes just can't make these ones out any more.

Michelle said...

It's good to know that the Cat in the Hat is keeping an eye on you. Lol.
I so love that fabric.

Yes, the new blog comments are driving these old eyes crazy. I often read blogs late at night and it is all I can do to figure some of them out. I often click for a new one and I have just skipped commenting sometimes. I have also reset my blog so this isn't happening there.
What design are you doing on the Dr. Seuss quilt that has high level management supervising operations? : )

YEP!

It is driving me crazy too!! Hmmmm, how can we fix this situation? I am loving your Seuss quilt!!

Pat said...

yes! me, too. i think i went through three codes on another blog! I almost gave up... :(

Candace said...

I see you have a strict taskmaster, and I'm sure that your quilt will be awesome. I hate what you hate, too, lol.

Ellen said...

I love your quilting inspector! I bet he is having an easy job of checking for quality control.

Karen said...

The verification process is bugging you, me and a lot of other people. I wonder who thought up the idea to make it so difficult. I haven't had that function on my blog in quite a while.

Word Verification is a trial - particularly to the me . . . the early morning reader. My brain, fingers and eyes are not at all in synch. For now, I will give WV one go and then I'm out. Blogging is supposed to be fun - not a chore. Hopefully Blogger/Google will go back to the previous edition *s*

Debbie said...

There's nothing like having someone looking over your shoulder to keep you on task ;)

The new style word verification is really difficult to figure out. Reminds me I need to check what settings I have on my own blog. Often 'new' is NOT better :)

I'm shocked they've introduced this silly comment system. I've turned word varification off on my blog and I've already had spam...but I'd rather than than not getting comments :-)

Merilyn said...

Yes, it is a very frustrating process having to decipher the new WV, and there are a lot of frustrated bloggers out there too, I hope they get lots of compliants and modify this process!

Kate said...

Hope the quilting is going well.

The new word verification required me to switch browsers, my version of Explorer would not let me comment. I'm not having much of a problem actually commenting. But I've turned off word verification for the moment and will see how that works.

I just came from a blog with the word verification, and it looked like a foreign language. So I changed my settings to disable it. Thanks for the heads up on that one. I love your Dr. Suess quilt. I see there is Lorax fabric, too.

Bonnie said...

Cute photo -- The cat isn't that hard of a task master is he? I turned off verification on my blog a while ago and I really don't get odd comments. (note to self... double check that wv is off!!!)

Looked like FNSI was a blast for you... I never remember to join in!

Michelle said...

I totally agree on the word verification. I recently posted about removing it from my blog and had a huge response. I'm hoping others will follow suit and make blog hopping (and commenting) fun again! :) Love the Dr. Seuss quilt!
