Button Heart Pins

Remember these crochet hearts? 



I thought about making them into a bunting for my sewing room, but then I accidentally ( um... this happens  when I have several projects spilled out on the table at the same time) came up with adding pretty buttons, to make them extra special.



Then I remembered I had a package of jewelry pin backs gathered from a thrifting foray.  A few quick stitches later, I can  now pin my colourful hearts to bags, collars or whatever I fancy.  Thought I'd share the idea with you, in case you  need a quick, simple gift.


On another topic...  having read other posts about the annoyance of having 2 ( sometimes very, very hard to read) words to enter to prove you're not a robot when leaving comments on Blogger... I decided to shut off word verification on my blog.   Within 24 hours, I was spammed, more than a half dozen times.  sigh.  Feeling frustrated, I've turned the word verification back on.   Anybody know a way around having to use word verification that doesn't invite spam?

  1. No idea how to switch of spam as well as word verification. I get spam, but only about a half dozen a week, not a day. Once in a blue moon I get three together, but I just delete them and get on with it. I guess it all depends how much spam you get. If mine ramped up then I would probably have to revert to word verification again. Meanwhile, your hearts are so sweet.

  3. What a cleaver idea for your little hearts. I love those buttons. Are they old or available in the stores...and where?

  4. The spammers must like you more than they like me - I don't think I even get one spam a month, lol. I have comment moderation turned on and rarely have to delete anything.

    The heart pins are cute!

  5. Love the heart pins!

    I'm having the same issues as you - I switched of word verification and am being spammed like crazy. They don't show up in my comment box but were being emailed to me (as all my comments are) so I set up a filter to sideline all the messages from Anonymous to a separate folder that I can check from time to time before batch deleting them. It seems to be working so far .... The new word verification dements me.

  7. Those are cute. I found you through Faith76. I'm loving your quilting and applique pictures. I have no idea about the way around spam - don't think there is one unfortunately.

  8. I found disabling anonymous comments did the trick...as long as that was left on I was getting spammed..though most got caught by the built in spam control in blogger.
