Desert bus went off amazingly well. They raised almost $400k for Child's Play, which is just mindblowing!
I've started working on a needlepoint piece that I think would be fantastic for next year's DB, but will also look fantastic on my wall. Which is probably where it's going to go, but I can always make another one for DB. I'm taking this pattern (called Nova, by Genny Morrow www.needleartworks.com/dsgnr/g… ) and changing up some of the colors so that the middle section looks like Mario.
It'll be a Mario Mosaic!!
I'm the type of crafter that really gets bored with a project and ends up not finishing it, so this one is really fantastic for me. I can do a square or two a night and be done, b/c each square is like a little Mini project: Each one is different!
Each square is 12x12 stitches, and the whole piece is 18x22 squares. It's plenty of squares to make an 8-bit Mario with a nice border around him. I'll post pictures of my progress soon.
