## Crafty update

It’s been lovely to be cosy inside our cottage crafting while it’s been like this outside…

Latest pair of socks hot off the needles…

Our grandchildren are delighted with their jumpers…

How many masks can you wear all at the same time? Young Master counted seven!

The current progress of the Coastal stashbusting blanket CAL…

All thanks to  Eleonora . If you love daffodils go check out Eleonora’s here , aren’t they beautiful?  I love the way she has photographed them 💛💛

There’s other crafty happenings on the bobbins, hooks and needles but they can wait for another time 🙂

## How to turn falling snow on (or off) your WordPress blog

This is helpful if you don’t want or do want snow on your blog. I’m avoiding all snowflake blogs for the duration due to sensory processing order that is associated with my autism. Thanks to BlogPad Pro for enlightening me on this subject.

I’ve just found the setting for mine, (I didn’t know my blog had one), and ensured it’s switched to off.

It’s that time of year once again, where we’re all starting to feel some festive cheer, and you might have noticed falling snow appearing on some of your favourite WordPress.com blogs

Are you wondering how to turn this option on?

Go to your online dashboard > Settings > General

Scroll to the bottom of the page and you’ll see “Show falling snow on my blog until January 4th” – simply check the box to turn on some festive falling snow.

If you’ve suddenly discovered falling snow on your blog (maybe you turned this option on last year), simply uncheck the button to turn off.

## Snowflakes can cause pain

Hello,

Snowflakes are lovely… mostly… I like real ones, and I like them knitted, crocheted, cut from folded paper, still photographs etc etc.

But…                                                                                                                                                                      I                                                                                                                                                                                      don’t                                                                                                                                                                                            like                                                                                                                                                                                     moving

snowflakes                                                                                                                                                                              across                                                                                                                                                                                         a                                                                                                                                                                screen                                                      of              text.

What we do with the appearance of our blogs is really up to each author; but if I follow your blog and you have chosen to have snow falling across your page I’m not going to be able to read your posts. I know that I could read via the other way – bright white background and wide width of text – but that too is problematic for me. So please don’t take it personally, but I won’t be able to hang around long enough to ‘like’ or write a comment.

I’m interested to know if this is an issue for other people?

I hesitated in writing this but thought best to be upfront about it.

With love, Tracey xxx 💙

Postscript: the column of words above were meant to be in a different space on each line but publishing has put them into a column. I have tried editing but the words stubbornly refuse to do as they are told. Tut tut… such naughtiness.

Postscript 2: I’ve edited again because what Jasper has to say in the comments is correct. It did sound like I was apologising for myself.
