Have been so busy. Been quilting, working, just tyring to catch up with life right now. I have been working at a new job for the past 7 months. And the only thing I have to say is wow. So much training and to much stuff to keep updated on. I like customer service but the stress that comes with this job does get to me at times. But it is a good job. I do sit all day at a computer, and when I come home, I don't want to sit at my home computer. But I do have so much fun at home on my computer. Well enough about work.
I was a single parent when my children was small. And my son wanted of course the video's games. I did my best to try to get them for him. At Christmas time, etc. He knew it was hard and understand. But he loved Super Mario Brother. And I did get it for him. I would try to beat him at that game so much that I never could. And I would really try. It was "OUR" thing to do. I would work and after dinner, try to beat him. When he was in bed, that would be the time I would practice....and never could beat him... It was a special time for us. Well he is grown, and still love the video games. And he also buys them himself..Ha ha.
Yes, he became a very (sometimes) level headed, young man and at 28 yrs old, I made him a Super Mario Bro. wall hanging.
I am making another one for myself. I love the way it turned out. I used 3 1/2 in squares. It is a large wall hanging. The one I will make for myself, think I'll use 2 1/2 sq. Yes, I took a picture and drafted it out on draft paper. Each square I colored in and counted. This quilt is just as special as the time we shared together.
