Starry Stars & Blogger Problem Resolved!

I just got antsy - I wanted to "finish" something, so because I had made extra Temecula star blocks, I just finished mine up into two little fliimsys. They are about 16" square and I call them "Patriotic Starry Stars". They will go into my box with my other small patriotic star flimsys to be quilted for next year! Looking forward to seeing the final star (which will not be included in my quilts - lol) and all of you fellow quilters finishes! This was one of my favorite SAL - you know me and STARS!!!!



Now to my blogger comment problem - Well thanks to Muddle Puddle, I found out that you had to type in the Numbers. Well, I consider myself and intelligent person - thought I am not an English Major but rather my education is in Applied Mathematics. So, you see I do understand numbers - but if you notice the next time you come across a comment that has word verification the instructions say:

"Prove you are not a robot"    Type the two words.

Now like I said, I am not an English Major, but NUMBERS ARE NOT WORDS!!!!!! Maybe I am just too literal!! LOL

But alas, I can now again leave comments on blogs with word verification, and most of the time I can get it right with less than 5 tries!!!! I think I would do a whole lot better if they just had me type in Numbers - I can understand those a whole lot better!! LOL!!!!

Oh by the way - I will catch the resident cowboy and his trusty black/dress hat and draw a winner for the two charm packs in the morning! So stay tuned...


Blessings Ya'll!!!!!

Wonderful little star quilts, Doniene! I love how you put them together with the one center star with the reverse value placement. Now I want to do a patriotic set, too! : )

Love your stars, Doniene... I want to make some too!

Glad you figured out the word verification thing... sometimes I can't read the blooming numbers at all... I think this is an eyesight test more than a verification thing...

Great use for your little star blocks. Blogger is sometimes a mystery. I have always just typed the numerical numbers numerial in and not the written numbers and it has worked.

Your star quilts are really so cute Doniene! I love all things red/white/blue, and especially stars :*) As for the comment problem - it's always a chance thing for me.. sometimes it accepts what I type and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes those things are so blurry I can't figure out what it is. Actually, I think I would have to be a robot to figure it out :*)

Love your little star minis Doniene. I, too, get frustrated with the verification thing - less than 5 tries is quite an achievement somedays!!
