Design wall Monday
I have 10 of the 12 blocks completed for the Super Mario Qal. I think it's looking like a quilt. There are 324 little 1.5 inch squares sewn to make each block. No wonder it is taking me a few hours each block! The latest block was the red mushroom.
I am so happy that my sewing machine is working well, all I needed to do was replace the needle and get some nice thread in it. I was frustrated because I was worried I broke it when I shattered two needles in it last week. Whew, I was missing it. The old Singer Touch and sew is nice but... well it isn't the Husquavarna.
We have been getting ready for wrestling season for our Son. Senior pictures, ordered grad announcements and cap/gown all happened this past week. I think now I can concentrate on Thanksgiving!
