* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Showing off!
« on: October 04, 2013, 12:31:03 am »
Lately I've been doing some Work for Brighid, making baby quilts for our local hospital. "Yeah, you, over there with the sewing machine. There are BABIES. Who have NO BLANKETS. FIX THAT." I've finished two, and I'm just so excited about them that I can't help but show off a bit! The bindings aren't perfect on either one, but I genuinely don't think an infant is going to care.

Quilt 1 even looks like a Brighid's cross! But this one was a pain in the butt.

I know I said it before but I want to echo how awesome those quilts, and this project in general, are. Hooray for emblanketing!
