Tessellating Fish Blanket Finished

It's been a long time since I last posted, and the only thing in my defense is that tax season started out hot and heavy.  The last week of the year was all classes about the final versions of new laws and the changes in our computer systems.  Even though I keep being told our numbers are down, you couldn't tell it by me.  I've had days of getting to work at 7:30 in the morning and getting home at 9 that night.  Add in the time before and after for caring for the animals and I was falling asleep in my dinner.  And then there is the getting the house ready for sound proofing. I'll write about that later.
At last, and just in time for Christmas, I finished the grandson's afghan..  It was greeted with wonder by his father, who though he had seen me working on it, still couldn't believe things like this could be made by hand.
One year old Anthony, of course, took it in stride, fingered it a moment, commented ooooh, then went on to his next gift.  But he did sleep with it Christmas night and nights since and uses it in the morning when watching sesame street.
