Super Mario Quilt.

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.
