Happy Memorial Day!

I'd like to take a moment to say thank you to all of our troops and service men and women who have given their time, talents, and in some cases their lives to keep this country a safe place for me and my family to live peacefully. In truth, they are the ones that give me the freedom to craft and quilt and create to my heart's desire, so I could not do any of this without the security they provide us all. So, thank you.

Since their sacrifice also gives me an extra day off work I am putting my time to good use and have a goal of finishing the rest of the Super Mario Quilt characters. I have 7 more to do, which means approximately 35 hours of sewing this weekend, plus ironing time, plus blogging time - probably about 40ish hours in the craft room. I'm also going wedding dress shopping with my friend Heidi this afternoon and going to a 2nd birthday party for my husband's cousin's kid - is that a second cousin? cousin once removed? second cousin once removed? Any way you look at it, it's a family birthday party and it has a Dora the Explorer theme, so there will be lots of tasty Mexican food! We're looking forward to it, and I'm looking forward to meeting my goal! Stay tuned for pictures of success or failure either way! :)

Characters I have left to make:
Koopa Troopa (turtle guy)
Laikitu Bro (green and yellow guy looking over the cloud)
Goomba's Shoe (green sock thing)
Goomba (brown and white guy)
Spiny Shell (orange and red spiky turtle shell guy)
Buzzy Beetle (black and brown shell guy toward the bottom left)
Buster Beetle - this one is not represented on the grid since we switched it for the plain green shell

Happy crafting!
