I've noticed a number of people are having issues with their comments showing up as being 'Anonymous' and I thought I'd share what I've discovered that seems to be working (mostly!). When you click on the area to leave a comment, look just above it and you should (hopefully!) see an option entitled 'Comment As' that includes at least three options. In my case it gives me an option to click to leave a comment as 'Magpie's Mumblings (Google)', plus there's an 'Anonymous' choice as well as a choice entitled 'Name/URL'. If you have a blog just click on that and your comment will show up as that name. You can also, if you would rather, or if you don't have a blog, click on the 'Name/URL' and follow the prompts to leave a comment under your own name. Hope that helps someone! I find that I have to keep re-doing this step on some blogs, sometimes for each time I leave a comment and other times it seems to 'last' a few days before reverting to me showing as being anonymous.
I've tried to take a picture of the area in question in hopes that it can help...
As for the UFO part of this post, some of you might remember me making advent calendars for our grandies last Christmas. I thought ahead and made one for our then-unborn wee little girl but the ornaments were left incomplete until now. Each of these had a row of whipped blanket stitch added to the outside edges.
If you want to be reminded of what they looked like, have a peek at THIS post.

- HERE is a great idea to use some of your button collection (I'd probably have to make at least 50 of these to even put so much as a dent in mine!)
