Ok I must be blind

Ok I must be blind.  I just tried posting to other dashboards and those irritating boxes that you have to type in to prove you are not a robot still is not working for me.

So to all my blogger friends, I am up to date on reading and admiring but after trying, yet again, to repeatedly type in those "words" just to be told it didn't work is on my ever loving last nerve.  I have been doing this for YEARS with no issues and all of a sudden it does not work????????? 

Can you tell my frustrations???????????  I can read the words but it tells me I am not enterint them correctly..............REALLY????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

So I love all the posts.  I love seeing what everyone is up to.  I just can't tell you because the blocks are too strong for some reason.  All I know is I am done trying because I seem to be the only one having the issue.

One UFO Completed...yeah

Most of you know the story about my son's injury Feburary 2010...Super Bowl Sunday and his year and a half long recovery.  He was in and out of the hospital numerous times for infections and numerous surgeries.  During the many, many hours spent there I tried to take a quilt project with me to work on but sometimes, depending on how he was feeling, I needed to be up and out of my chair to tend to him in about 30 seconds, which we all know is not enough time to carefully place needes and pins. 

So I took up yarn work again.  I needed something for my hands to do during that time.  Crochet is alot easier to drop at a moments notice.  I started the afghan pictured below.  It was tossed in the closet over the spring and summer because so many other things needed tending to and life got busy.  Things have slowed down so I rescued the project from the closet and it is now completed.  During the time in the hospital my son's girlfriend commented on how pretty it was.  I really had no plans for the completed item so I am thinking it will be a Christmas gift for her.  Money will be tight because of the past year and a half so I need to be smart about gift giving this year.  I think she will love it.

So that means one gift down...yeah!!!!
