Cloves and comments

Greetings!  First off - answers to several emails about studding pears. I buy my cloves in small bottles at my local grocery.  The name is Spice Supreme and you can find them online by searching Spice Supreme Whole Cloves.  To make it easier, I'll give the link to one online grocery company where you can order these.  You may need three jars since they reduced the size again to 1.75 ounces, but maybe two is enough for one large pear.  Many have the heads missing which is common unless you order the top quality super pricey.  Those cloves are used on the pear's bottom and I also keep them in a bowl which the pomanders sit in since they are just for decoration.  I only use Bosc pears (or oranges and lemons) and I don't coat with spices.  If you want to, don't until it's completely dried.  The other thing I wanted to mention is if you are asking a question, I'm more than happy to reply. Except you may not realize when commenting or clicking to email, your Blogger settings apply.  Here's two ways to change that if you would like.  First - if you want your comments/emails available for replies, click on your name in the top right corner of the dashboard, then click Blogger Profile (or just go to your Profile page).  When the page opens, click the orange Edit Profile on the top right.  Check Show my email address.  Make sure you hit Save at the bottom. That's it!  Another way to have your email available in your profile - click your name, then Account Settings. Click Edit profile directly under your name, then Change contact settings, check Allow for email/messages from your profile page. Since we're talking computers, the tech came and I'm really happy with him. I have a clean slate, no additional programs, and none of my files could be recovered.  My fault since I tried a recovery disc when he failed to show for the first appointment. Pear charts are lost, all Favorites, photos, blogs, emails, scans and labels.  I may still change Mr. Smarty pain-in-the-pants 7 to Vista.  A very simple trick he showed me to correct the viewing size of blogs and webpages.  You probably know this but I'll tell you anyway.  On your Menu bar at the top, click View, go to Zoom, and make sure it is 100% or increase to whatever % you want.  It stays that way!  No menu bar?  Right click the very top and check Menu Bar.  Now that it's over, again, I'm sorry if I missed a request, failed to post your finished Pear photos, or haven't visited your blog.  It will take a very long while to build up my bookmarks again.  I relied on those easy clicks and can't possible remember all the blog names - I stored hundreds!
Here's the link to the cloves - sorry - got off track.
You can find them in bulk on Amazon and other sites too.
I did get a little stitching time and need to decide on what to have in the bottom vines.  It is charted for your name on the left, and "her work" on the right.  I don't like to have pieces other than samplers with names and it would be a difficult fit anyway.  Because of the lamb and lion at the bottom, I'd like to use Peace, so maybe Peace Love on one side, and Unity Hope on the other.  Same amount of letters so it should balance and fit.  Well I'm glad that just popped into my head because I've been wracking the brain for a while and couldn't come up with anything!  
I hope those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving have a wonderful day with family and friends.  There will only be a few of us, which means - more pie per person!!!
Thanks for visiting - stay safe!
